The sample of the study comprised 67 Science and Technical College students purposively sampled from two intact classes randomly selected from the three Science and Technical colleges in Nasarawa State, Nigeria. Two research questions and two research hypotheses guided the study. Science and Technical Achievement Test (STAT) was used as instrument for data collection. It reliability was determined using Kuder-Richardson formula 20 (KR20) and the reliability coefficient of 0.83 was obtained. Mean and Standard Deviation were used to answer the research questions while Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was used to test the research hypotheses at 0.05 alpha level of significance. Bonferroni Multiple Comparisons was used to determine the direction of the difference. The findings of this study revealed that Peer Tutoring and Explicit instructional strategies have significant effect on Science and Technical college students' achievement and retention.
