What subject areas have been the focus of previous research?

Most of the rigorous previous research has evaluated reading and literacy programs, though there is also good evidence for mathematics and numeracy programs.

One meta-analysis found reading programs were more effective for younger learners, while mathematics programs were more effective for older students. There is limited evidence on small group tuition effects in subject areas outside of literacy and numeracy.
