Tutoring Adolescents in Literacy: A Meta-Analysis
Jun, Seung Won; Ramirez, Gloria; Cumming, Alister
McGill Journal of Education, v45 n2 p219-238 2010
What does research reveal about tutoring adolescents in literacy? We conducted a meta-analysis, identifying 152 published studies, of which 12 met rigorous inclusion criteria. We analyzed the 12 studies for the effects of tutoring according to the type, focus, and amount of tutoring; the number, age, and language background of students; and the quality of the research. Despite variability, these studies suggest benefits, notably for cross-age tutoring, reading, and small tutoring programs of lengthy duration. (Contains 4 tables and 4 notes.)
