Tutoring by Parents of Their Children in First Grade.
Jacobowitz, Sandra E.
A study was undertaken to examine the effect of parent tutoring on the reading scores of their children and on their own reading scores. The experimental group was composed of ten children who had just completed first grade and their parents. The control group was composed of ten nontutored children and their parents. All of the children were chosen from those with the lowest reading scores in their classes. Tutoring parents attended three one-hour training sessions where they were taught techniques for tutoring their children. Nontutoring parents also attended training sessions, but were taught math games to play with their children. At the end of the nine-week program, both children and parents were tested for reading improvement. The results showed no significant differences between the reading scores of the tutored and the nontutored children, nor was there a significant difference between the reading scores of tutoring and nontutoring parents.
