College Students' Reactions to Tutoring: The Role of Prior Attitudes and Attachment.
Perrine, Rose M.; Wilkins, Stephen L.
Journal of the First-Year Experience & Students in Transition, v13 n2 p55-73 Fall 2001
Explored relationships among college students' cognitive and affective reactions to required academic tutoring, prior attitudes, and attachment style. Found that resistance to tutoring was related to prior negative attitudes toward tutoring and to insecure attachment; students with prior negative attitudes tended to feel even more negatively toward tutoring after receiving tutoring in college.
