peer mentor (?)

I'm not sure from the French quite who does what, but here's an idea:

A trained school-based teacher who has responsibility for the support and assessment of a student/s on teaching practice in school. They may also be involved in teaching curriculum and/or
pedagogical subjects as part of the student's course and normally provide a report and/or an assessment at the end of the period of practice>>

<<The Peer Mentor Project (PMP) was designed to assist students experiencing academic difficulties …
The goals of the PMP are:
To assist second semester freshmen with a GPA of 1.99 or lower to improve their academic adjustment and/or performance, and
To offer students who serve as mentors an opportunity for the development of leadership skills and traits of empathy, kindness, patience and tolerance.

The PMP pairs 8 mentors with 40 mentees. The mentors will act as guides to mentees, assisting them to understand the university culture.
The eight student mentors in the program are sophomores and juniors chosen for their traits of patience, empathy and kindness.>>
