With our MetaSocratic® method, tutors are trained to guide students, not just solve the problem. The result? Both the tutor and tutee learn to think more deeply and ask better questions, cementing the learning and their confidence far beyond the hour-long session.
What is the MetaSocratic® peer tutoring method?
Fusing the power of metacognition, thinking about thinking, and Socrates’ art of questioning to help students think critically, problem solve, and collaborate—all through an intentional social/emotional framework.
Thinkist MetaSocratic® Certified peer tutors employ a full range of tutoring practices, developing their student’s independent critical thinking skills, preparing them for success in school, career, and life.

The proof is in the students
Knowing it’s okay to not know the answer, but having the persistence to work through those things can help make math more fun.
Before this program, I had all the pieces, but I was just memorizing them. I didn’t realize that it was like a jigsaw puzzle. I didn’t realize that you had to put all the pieces together to get the final picture.
Now I see that wrong answers don’t mean you don’t get it, it just means you haven’t gotten it yet.
