College Tutoring Programs Benchmarks, 2017 Edition (ISBN No:978-157440-424-1 )

the 112-page report brings data and commentary from 44 American colleges and universities about their tutoring programs. Among the topics covered: tutoring by students, faculty, adjuncts and professional tutors; use of various types of tutoring, embedded tutors, online tutoring, group tutoring, by appointment and walk-in tutoring, for example.  Program budget, tutor salaries, technology use, integration into the library and into retention efforts, and training programs for student tutors. The study also presents highly detailed data on the overall growth rate of tutoring on college campuses, and the extent of use of different kinds of tutors, and tutoring approaches.

Data in the report is broken out for public and private colleges, by enrollment size, tuition level, Carnegie class and by type of tutoring program (i.e. for the overall college, for a specific subject matter or for a specific student population type)


Just a few of the report’s many findings are that:

·         70.45% of survey participants offered a walk in tutoring service for which an appointment was not necessary.

·         Private colleges were much more likely than public ones to offer online tutoring.

·         For community colleges, student tutors accounted for only 52.77% of total tutoring staff hours.

·         The more a college charges for tuition, the greater the likelihood that it offers a training or certificate program for student tutors.  54.55% of colleges charging less than $4,500 in annual tuition offer training or certificate programs for student tutors while 81.82% of colleges charging more than $27,000 annually offer such program.
