Welcome to the Power of Peer Tutoring blog! This blog will be used to share organizational and scholarship updates, peer tutoring news, thoughts on education, and much more. To kick off our blog, we would like to take a moment to reflect on the first three years of the NSF (the NSF will be turning 3 in June). Without the collaboration and support of our executive team, advisory board, student ambassadors, educators, and everyone else who has supported us, none of this would have been possible. Thank you!
