TUTORING PROGRAM MATH BOOKLET: 501 MATH WORD PROBLEMS
Welcome to my SURVEY PAGE for 6-8 grade STUDENTS, PARENTS, and TUTORS!
My name is Janice Isbell, ABD. I am a student at Northcentral University. I am conducting a research study on whether tutoring, which includes culture, helps middle school mathematics students. I am completing this research as part of my doctoral degree. I invite you to participate.
The assessment process includes the students completing 5 surveys (total time 45 minutes) and the tutors completing 4 surveys (total time 45 minutes). The time commitment includes 2 tutoring classes each week for 6 weeks. The classes provide tutoring on Fractions, Decimals, Percent, and Basic Algebra. The study is being conducted to determine if the Culturally Relevant Tutoring is tutoring which incorporates the students’ culture: Demographic Backgrounds, Learning Styles, Multiple Intelligences, Personality Types, and Self-Efficacy increases Students’ Academics, Class Participation, and Self-Efficacy.

Parents: If you consent to your child’s participation in the study, he or she will be asked to:
1. Complete the following 5 surveys
Cultural Competence Survey
Learning Styles Inventory
Big 5 Personality Test
2. Participate in a tutoring program for six weeks, 2 hours each day, 2 days each week. The surveys the students will complete are as follow.
The surveys will be taken on the first tutoring day of the week and the second day of the week (e.g. Mondays/Thursdays or Tuesdays/Fridays).
Fractions Problems, 1 hour, Week 1
Decimals Problems, 1 hour, Week 2
Percent Problems, 1 hour, Week 3
Basic Algebra Problems, 1 hour, Week 4
Miscellaneous Problems, 1 hour, Weeks 5/6
You are eligible to participate in this research if you:
Are students who are having problems in their mathematics class, (e.g, students who have not earned a letter grade of A (90-100) or B (80-89) in their previous Math class.)
Are in grades 6-8,
Scored below proficiency on Aspire mathematics tests
You are not eligible to participate in this research if he/she:
Is a student who is not having problems in mathematics class,
Is not in grades 6-8, or
Scored at or above average on Aspire mathematics tests.
I hope to include 126 students in this research.
If you have questions for me, you can contactmeat: J.Isbell9500@email.ncu.edu, 256-434-1778, doctoral student at NCU.
Please note the parents, tutors, and students can sign the consent/assent forms to participate in this tutoring program online: http://www.janiceisbell.com/surveys.html.
The PASSWORD for each survey is genius.
The title of my dissertation is "A Quantitative Quasi-Experimental Research Study of Culturally Relevant Tutoring and Students’ Academics,
Class Participation, and Self-Efficacy."
Each test takes about 1 hours to complete.
