The purpose of the present study was to investigate the peer tutoring program at a university for its better management in the future, and to foster other similar programs. The subjects were a total of 17 tutors and 95 tutees, all of whom participated in the tutoring program for an English writing course. They answered survey questions regarding the program, and additionally tutors were interviewed for the in-depth analysis. The results showed that tutors evaluated the program and their tutoring performances positively, except when it came to their own teaching skills and qualifications. Likewise, tutees were satisfied with the program in which tutors gave direct feedback on their essay assignments, and this in turn led to the improvement of their performance in the English writing course. However, the tutors perceived that the tutoring program needed more organized administrative and educative support from the university. In addition, both tutors and tutees reported that the absence metric of the latter should be increased and enforced with the help of school policy. The following suggestions for the program were also added: the importance of limiting the number of tutees, the need to obtain systematic administrative and educative support, and finally the provision of tutor training sessions.
Key Words: peer tutoring, college tutoring program, extracurricular program, tutor and tutee, English writing
