The purpose of this research aims at exploring the effects of peer mentoring on the learning performance of junior high school students with low achievement in Mathematics. The experimented students were four 2nd graders with low achievement in Mathematics from the researcher’s junior high school. The action research was carried out in a semester. The data were collected through student midterm grades, quantitative analysis, questionnaires, teacher observation records, interviews, teaching journals, etc. In addition, data analyses had been applied to evaluate how the peer mentoring program influenced the learning performance of the junior high school students with low achievement in Mathematics and the professional development of teachers.
The major findings of the research are as follows:
1. The promotion of the learning achievement in Mathematics of the low achievement students is the most obvious, and all the four students present the large progress in the raw score and the standardized score.
2. The low achievement students obtain good improvement in the psychological functions, and it is the most obvious that the low achievement students reduce anxiety about learning Mathematics.
3. The teacher may encounter some difficult problems arouse from the peer mentoring program, such as the time arrangement, the selection of the places, the development of the atmosphere and the evaluation of the effects.
4. The peer mentoring program can improve teachers’ professional skills and the relationship between the teachers and the students.
Finally, based on the findings above, suggestions were made for the reference of the school administrative units, teachers and future research.
