Study Shows Tutoring Reduces Math Anxiety

Great Headline – Tutoring Reduces Math Anxiety.

But how do we know?

If you’ve followed my blog and my posts for any amount of time, you know that I don’t often quote statistics or ‘research’ in Education since the studies tend to be subjective.  This study was the first quantitative study that I’ve seen.  The researchers did MRI on children before and after tutoring to measure brain waves and brain development.  Very interesting stuff.

The bottom line is that compared to a baseline, students who received 1 on 1 tutoring for Math were less anxious after only 8 weeks.   All the details of the study are at this link:
