Tutoring is an important form of academic support for developmental education students. A comparison study was conducted to investigate the benefits of tutoring on the final grades for developmental English students who participated in tutoring versus those students who did not. The final grades for three consecutive semesters were analyzed to determine tutoring efficacy at a community college in northeastern North Carolina. Results indicated that students who received tutoring were more successful than students who did not receive tutoring. Success was noted in a higher percentage of As and Bs, lower withdrawal rates, and higher persistence rates in developmental English courses. Implications were noted for students regarding tutoring, administrators considering the merits of tutoring programs, and instructors who teach developmental English courses.
