The Impact of Group Tutoring on At-Risk College Students
Dr. Valeria Russ, Ph.D.

This study indicates the positive impacts of group tutoring on at-risk students’ academic achievement. The differences between the final grades of at-risk students who received group tutoring were compared to those who received one-to-one tutoring. In 2007, a University in the Southeastern United States began the AEP, which is a two-semester program that students who are considered at-risk are enrolled. The participants consisted of 95 college freshmen, 80 males and 15 females, who were conditionally enrolled at the University in the Academic Enrichment Program (AEP). Each of the participants was assigned to group tutoring or one-to-one tutoring. Results of a one-way analysis of variance determined there were significant differences in final grades of students who received group tutoring compared to one-to-one tutoring.
