The deterioration of freshmen's scholastic performance has been markedly intensified and this phenomenon leads to serious problem in managing a college curriculum. In this study, peer tutoring, as a learning ability improvement program in Hoseo university, was introduced and the influence of the program on freshmen's scholastic performance was analyzed. In managing the program, a spontaneous participation of students was guided, a systematical network was built up among participants, tasks were assigned to participants and the results were verified for the improvement of the program. As a result, it was considered that peer tutoring strengthened the relationship among students, increased the leadership and responsibility as well as helped to enhance the interest in studying and improved the scholastic performance for both tutors and tutees.
