One of the biggest challenge of a teacher is to keep the attention of the students at maximum level during all lesson, moreover in engineering degree. The engineering student body has a technical profile and enjoys more the subjects with direct application in solving problems than theoretical subject. Researchers have analysed student concentration ability and they have concluded that they only are able to keep the concentration for only about 15 minutes, what about the others 45 or 75 minutes of the lessons? Many methodologies have been developed to keep students motivated throughout the learning process. Peer tutoring teaching reverses roles and turns students into a teacher, so students become active agents in their own learning process. This teaching methodology not only increase students´ motivation and performance, but also other transversal skills such as social.

Students from civil engineering take part in peer tutoring teaching methodology developed in lectures to improve the effectiveness of lecture and increase the motivation of students. At the end of the course, students filled a survey to evaluate the methodology. The most of them not only agree that the technique increase motivation and the capacity to assimilate new concepts but also communication skills.
