TUTORING AND PARENTING INFLUENCE ENGINEERING: IMPACT ON FEMALE TEENAGERS

Tutoring and parenting to great extent assist in harmonizing the capabilities of students especially the girl child who places so much honour and respect on their parents and teachers especially in course selection. This research reinforced the influence of parenting and tutoring on the engineering selection of the girl child in Nigeria with special focus on southwestern Nigeria . This was achieved with the distribution of questionnaire to girls in the senior form (SS1 – SS2) of some selected secondary school using face to face approach, Furthermore, focus group discussion approach was also employed in the data collection. Data on tutoring, parenting, subject mastery, counselling and individual factors were collected, sorted and analyzed. Statistical software SPSS Version 21 was employed in the analysis of the data. The result showed that parenting and tutoring had a great impact on the academic performance of the girl child and to a large extent influenced the selection of science and technical subjects in secondary school. Conversely subject mastery has little influence on the course selection .The result of this research will be of tremendous help to school owners both private and government on the improvement measures for the selection of engineering as a course by the female child.
