My Train of Thought for this Study

After School Tutoring Programs Should Include:

VIDEOS, SONGS, RYMTHEMIC POEMS, & RAPS

FOR THE VISUAL AND AUDITORY LEARNERS.


(AUDITORY LEARNERS - RECORD INSTRUCTIONS

& RECORD PASSAGES, INSTRUCTIONS, ETC. & REPLAY)


PDF ANSWERS WITH STEPS TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS,

(NOT JUST THE ANSWERS).

ART WORK OF DIGRAMS & CHARTS,

(USE SCISSORS TO DO CUTOUTS)

FOR THE  KINESTHETIC LEARNERS!


Students' Culture in the Examples,

Learn about the Students via the Surveys &

Make Accommodations to Instructions.

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.

Activities: 
Parents:  If you consent to your child’s participation in the study, he or she will be asked to:
Complete the following 5 surveys
*Child Self-Efficacy Scale (Bandura, 2006)
*Self-Efficacy Questionnaire for Children
*Learning Styles Inventory
*Multiple Intelligences
*Big 5 Personality Test

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

Eligibility: 
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.
