A Survey of Tutoring Projects. CSE Report on Tutoring, No. 3.
Fitz-Gibbon, Carol Taylor
This survey was undertaken in order to assess the nature of tutoring projects that have been implemented in schools, particularly in urban schools. It was also an attempt to locate examples of a particular kind of tutoring project, one designed primarily to promote learning in the tutors. This objective is based on the assumption that secondary schools, which are increasingly facing problems of alienated, unmotivated, rebellious students, might see tutoring as a way of reinvolving these students in school. A project designed to promote learning among tutors is identified as a "Learning-by-Tutoring" project to distinguish it from other kinds of tutoring projects. The survey provides information in the following areas: (1) size and scope of existing projects; (2) implementation characteristics; (3) learning-by-tutoring projects; (4) project outcomes; (5) relationships between implementation characteristics and project outcomes; and (6) project needs. Appendices include: (a) a bibliography on tutoring; (b) a copy of the questionnaire used in the survey; (c) advice from school personnel; (d) report of visits to 14 sites; and (e) a tutoring coordinator's account of her project.
