Abstract

The present study explored relationships among college students' cognitive and affective reactions to academic tutoring, prior attitudes, and attachment style. Participants (N = 49) were first-year college students who were required to receive tutoring. Resistance to tutoring was related to prior negative attitudes toward tutoring and to insecure attachment. Students with prior negative attitudes tended to feel even more negatively toward tutoring after receiving tutoring in college.
