Abstract

This paper explores the use of a social robot for one-on-one tutoring, in a study in which 15 children participated in four second-language tutoring sessions. Specifically, changes across sessions are measured on two dimensions: engagement and performance. Results have revealed a significant positive change in performance as well as a significant pattern in engagement across the interactions.
