LEARN Online Tutoring Program Study : Summary Report and Analysis of the LEARN Parent Survey

LEARN Online Tutoring Program Study : Summary Report and Analysis of the LEARN Parent Survey
LEARN (Leading English Education and Resource Network) is a non-profit educational organization with a mandate to serve the English-speaking community of Quebec by offering resources and services at no charge to elementary and secondary level students. One of the rapidly growing services is online tutoring and homework. Tutors are fully qualified Quebec teachers, experienced in tutoring, working directly with elementary (gr. 2 and up) and secondary students and their families. LEARN is anticipating up to 45,000 tutorial sessions this year, almost triple the number of sessions in the 2019-2020 school year, with 200 part-time tutors involved in the service. In January 2023, LEARN mandated the Canadian eLearning Network (CANeLearn.net) to conduct an independent assessment of the program. CANeLearn sought the input of parents with children in the program to help determine how LEARN’s online tutoring met parent’s needs and how the program might be improved. A survey was developed and administered by CANeLearn, though LEARN distributed the survey in both English and French to parents of children involved in the tutoring program. The results were directly collected and used by CANeLearn to create this report about the program’s effectiveness and to analyze the tutoring program’s impact on student learning success, motivation, and confidence. Survey results were also reviewed in the context of recent research on tutoring and a discussion of findings can be found at the end of this report
