Peer Tutoring on Enhancement of Mathematics Performance of Selected Grade 6 Students at Gregorio Herradura Elementary School, Victoria, Laguna, Philippines


  • Philip Cyrill Candelaria Department of Education, Gregorio Herradura Elementary School



Peer tutoring is a learning method that entails student partnerships that pair good students with lower achievers or pupils with comparable achievement for systematic reading and math study times. The main purpose of this study is to determine the problems of selected grade 6 students in mathematics that would help the students enhance their academic performance in the subject. The data gathering will be done by selecting grade 6 students, both female and male, with separate results from the conducted pretest and posttest questionnaires. Other students who do not fall into the category are not included in the collection of information. The only purpose of this study is to achieve its goal, and it won't investigate anything else. After using dependent T test at the scores of the students after pretest and posttest, we got a computed value (T Value) of -5.6803. With a critical value of -2.0195, we can reject the null hypothesis and conclude that peer tutoring can bring a significant difference to the combined result of critical thinking and problem-solving test. The finding suggests that school heads and classroom teachers may use "peer tutoring" as a learning method for helping the learners improve their performance in mathematics. The school and the classroom teachers may use peer tutoring as a learning method that entails student partnerships that pair good students with lower achievers or pupils with comparable achievement for systematic reading and math study times.
