dc.description.abstractThrough a case study approach, this research investigates the perspectives of parents and tutors regarding private supplementary tutoring (PST). Findings showcase determinants for the motivated use of PST from parents who enroll their elementary-school level children in private schools, as well as tutors who teach elementary-school children from private schools. This thesis explored the financial, social, and psychological aspects which may or may not influence parental use of PST in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. Congruency among both populations (parents and tutors) demonstrates that factors surrounding the use of PST relate to parental time limitations, parents’ unfamiliarity with subject areas, and the provision of emotional security. Moreover, results conclude that PST is used to maintain or increase student performance, specifically for higher grade scores and developing student self-confidence.en_US
dc.description.abstractA través de un enfoque de estudio de caso, esta investigación investiga las perspectivas de los padres y tutores sobre la tutoría suplementaria privada (PST). Los hallazgos muestran los determinantes para el uso motivado de PST de los padres que inscriben a sus hijos en escuela primaria y privada, así como tutores que enseñan a niños de primaria de escuelas privadas. Esta tesis exploró los aspectos financieros, sociales y psicológicos que pueden o no influir en el uso de PST por parte de los padres en Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. La congruencia entre ambas poblaciones (padres y tutores) demuestra que los factores que rodean el uso de PST se relacionan a las limitaciones de tiempo de los padres, la falta de familiaridad de los padres con las áreas temáticas y la provisión de seguridad emocional. Además, los resultados concluyen que el PST se usa para mantener o aumentar el rendimiento de los estudiantes, específicamente para obtener calificaciones más altas y desarrollar la autoconfianza.en_US
