Editorial Reviews


Exhilarating and timely. Dr. Nelson-Royes has captured the essential outtakes of the tutoring process. She has compiled a volume which can be utilized in today’s classrooms, higher educational setting, as well as corporate environments. Why Tutoring?: A Way to Achieve Success in School, offers a refreshing view of the future of tutoring in educational development while relating historical aspects of the process. Her book brilliantly illuminates characteristics of the process which will assist with a discussion beyond mere - why tutoring is needed - to a higher discussion of -when and how - to. This book is a much needed resource for both new educators and experienced administrators as they plan for the success of our students in schools across the world. -- Zandra V. Draper, owner and director Texas Tutor Professionals and Alexander C. Warren, PhD, executive director, Texas Tutor Professionals

In Why Tutoring?: A Way to Achieve Success in School, Dr. Andrea M. Nelson-Royes provides practical and research-driven information on tutoring that can be readily applied by stakeholders. As an educator and author of several books and journal articles on the topic of tutoring students, I find Dr. Andrea Nelson-Royes’s book to be unique, easy-to-read, and a much needed resource to support the academic success of all students. This book is a must read for all educators, parents, administrators, and other professionals who work with students, in particular, struggling students. Schools of education will find Dr. Nelson-Royes’s book an exceptional supplementary text in teacher education courses. -- Gary Reglin, EdD, retired professor, educational leadership, University of West Florida, and adjunct professor, Fischler School of Education and Human Services, Nova Southeastern University

Dr. Nelson-Royes takes the reader on a comprehensive journey through the history and theory of tutoring, from its inception thousands of years ago to its role as a 21st-century learning tool. Her thorough research provides hard evidence that tutoring is a valuable method for academic achievement. Why Tutoring?: A Way to Achieve Success in School should be read by every classroom teacher. Nelson-Royes proves tutoring makes learners better students. -- Jack Goodman, founder and CEO, Tutoring Australasia

I totally agree with Dr. Nelson-Royes, tutoring is a viable strategy to provide supplementary instruction to increase educational yield, especially for students who require additional assistance for twenty-first century academic and lifelong success. Further as stated in the book ‘research suggests that tutoring helps students become more organized, self-assured, and proficient at identifying relationships between ideas. The book provides comprehensive list of the core essentials for tutors in successful tutoring programs. It also discusses various “Best Practice Tutoring Programs”. Why Tutoring?: A Way to Achieve Success in School is practically as well as theoretically well written. It is a must for both all those who are involved in tutoring and wish to get involved in tutoring in the near future. I am confident that the book will help teachers, as well as parents to achieve their goals in tutoring. I congratulate Dr. Andrea M. Nelson-Royes for her excellent contribution in the subject. -- Sunil Kulkarni, editor-coordinator, ITLIT Online Journal

Dr. Nelson-Royes’s book, Why Tutoring ?: A Way to Achieve Successin School is an essential framework for understanding how to use tutoring to build academic skills. While student demographics, academic standards, twenty-first-century skills, and cultural contexts are ever-changing; what remains constant is the need for continuous quality improvement. Nelson-Royes presents a compelling and comprehensive review of previous and current research to inform both individual tutoring programs and the field. Her focus on evaluation and research-based practices embodies the culture of continuous quality improvement, and it creates an invitation to embark on the journey toward high-quality tutoring.
-- Karen Woodward, Ed.M., founding director, Tutoring Partnership for Academic Excellence and senior program director, Saint Paul Public Schools Foundation and Kara Bixby, M.P.P. director of research and evaluation, Saint Paul Public Schools Foundation
