The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) is structured to encourage partnerships between K-12 schools and a wide variety of community tutoring and educational service organizations. Tutoring is a form of education with a long history and can be an important component in improving student achievement. There is a considerable body of literature on tutoring, but much of it is mainly descriptive in nature. Some important researched-based studies are analyzed here, but clearly many more studies of this type are needed for tutoring to make a substantial contribution to NCLB.
