This paper examines Bruner’s notion of scaffolding in one-to-one teaching of Maths Recovery. The interactions of two teachers working with students were videotaped and then transcribed. The sessions are described and discussed. The results of this study showed that scaffolding is an important characteristic deemed to be suitable in one-to-one teaching of Maths Recovery. However, more study of one-to-one teaching is needed to further understand the types of characteristics that would enhance the teaching and learning process in one-to-one teaching.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
