InTheNewsBeginning with an unusual item this week.

The life of an online tutor can resemble that of an assembly line worker
Jill BarshayThe Hechinger Report, 2023/01/18

IconThis article describes the experience of Leo Salvatore, one of 3,000 online tutors employed by Paper, an online tutoring company. “Dozens of tutors describe similar stories on a Reddit discussion board, complaining about time constraints and low pay (Starting wages were recently increased to $18 an hour.).”  Some tutors “describe a sweatshop-like atmosphere where tutors quickly burn out and are fired.” They use a text chat interface and may be communicating with a number of students at once. “Students at schools that pay Paper between $40 and $80 (per month? per year?) per pupil are entitled to unlimited on-demand tutoring at any hour of the day.”

COVID Brief: Few Students Use Online Tutoring Programs
John BaileyThe 74, 2023/01/20

IconWith the original story blocked behind a paywall (archived version) it’s pretty easy to offer a slanted summary that people can’t check. For whatever reason, The 74 wants people to believe online tutoring programs have been ineffective. As the article reports, “Less than 2% of the student body used an opt-in tutoring service… most of those who did log in used it for less than an hour — the median was 29 minutes.” But this trend isn’t universal; we also read (but not in The 74) that in another district, with a different provider, “From August to December, there were 8,500 tutoring sessions for the 10,000 students eligible to participate… and 200 college admissions essays were reviewed.” In The 74 we read that “Opt-in services often falter because some students lack confidence, motivation or clarity about what they need, so they don’t sign in.” Maybe. But I’m less inclined to pin the blame on students, and to suggest that more important factors likely include how the service is presented, how it’s integrated into other work, and how accessible it is.

By Jill Barshay

Education research and data are important in understanding what is and isn’t effective in education. But sometimes it’s equally important to look at the people behind the numbers. This week, I profile an online tutor at the leading online tutoring company, Paper, to understand how online tutoring works and to temper expectations for what on-demand homework help can accomplish.

Read the column
Key Findings 
  • Paper tutors are frequently toggling among multiple students at once and are working under time constraints for essay feedback.
  • These kinds of on-demand tutors are trained to help with small homework questions, but not in giving students more substantial lessons.
  • Chat-based tutoring without video and audio may be less engaging for many students – and tutors. There can be long pauses between text responses.
Lit Review 
PROOF POINTS: Uncertain evidence for online tutoring
It’s a booming business in the wake of the pandemic (February 2022)

PROOF POINTS: Many schools are buying on-demand tutoring but a study finds that few students are using it Companies market 24/7 online tutoring services as “high-dosage” tutoring but researchers warn that these products don’t have an evidence base behind them (November 2022)
