Adolescents' Comprehension and Content Area Education Students' Perceptions: Benefits from One-on-One Tutoring
This research study analyzed the effectiveness of content-area education students tutoring adolescents and documented changes in the attitudes of the education students over time. The tutors tested the reading comprehension of both the 46 students they tutored and 47 students they did not. Results revealed that both the tutees and tutors gained from this experience.
