Tutoring for Literacy Products


Is one-to-one volunteer tutoring effective in
increasing the math and literacy skills of
 children in Grades 1-6?




Students and staff at Research Works! for child literacy answered this question in the interest of Frontier College and the Policy and Program Branch of the Ontario Ministry of Education using CCKM's systematic review protocols. We found 57 articles and prepared a Summary Report on the 22 experiments that tested the effectiveness of tutoring. Together the studies indicated that tutoring works! CCKM SPOTLIGHTS feature the 10 best experiments in the systematic review of evidence.
