Studies show: tutoring is the most
effective teaching method on the planet

New York Times
“In a 1984 paper that is regarded as a classic of educational psychology, Benjamin Bloom, a professor at the University of Chicago, showed that being tutored is the most effective way to learn, vastly superior to being taught in a classroom.

“Bloom randomly assigned 4th-, 5th- and 8th-grade students to classes of about 30 pupils per teacher, or to one-on-one tutoring. The average tutored student outperformed 98 percent of the classroom-taught students. That’s two standard deviations better — a huge difference.
