The effects of tutoring on school student performance: An economic analysis


NMA Jayasinghe

At present, the Government of Sri Lanka is providing the necessary benefits to thousands of students to achieve their educational goals while maintaining school education in a systematic and systematic manner at great expense. Even in a free education environment, many school students tend to turn to private tutoring classes. Accordingly, the purpose of this study was to study whether participation in tuition classes has an impact on student performance. The sample used for the study was a randomly selected sample of 200 students attending tuition classes at two schools in the Weligepola Divisional Secretariat Division in the Ratnapura District. The data obtained from the structured questionnaire methodology are analyzed in detail and by multiplicative effect analysis. Analytical data showed that the use of tuition classes had an impact on student academic performance, and that factors such as household income, students 'and parents' perception of school also had a positive effect. However, linear socio-economic factors such as the number of tuition classes in which a student participates, and the degree to which a student participates are not specific to student academic performance.
