Compared a peer model and professional model for teaching study skills to college freshmen. 17 freshmen in the professional model received 10 hrs of instruction in study skills in 2 groups taught by 1 professional. In the peer model, freshmen were divided into 16 pairs of tutors and tutees. The tutors learned the study skills in 5 90-min weekly seminars. Between meetings, the tutors individually taught these skills to the tutees. Ss in both models significantly improved study skills relative to attention and waiting-list control groups. The peer model was as effective as the professional model in study skills change. (15 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
