What does it mean by 'Tutoyer'?

I know it means something like, you can use 'tu' or we can use the 'tu' form with each other, is it not? so how would I use it in a sentence, to ask the other person this? Is this a verb? I thought it is spelt 'tu toyer'? And is there a verb for using vous form, like tutoyer?
