Eleven months that shape a lifetime
As a Math Corps tutor, you must commit to 11 months of AmeriCorps service (August 7 to July 11), completing 1720 hours for full-time tutors (about 40 hours/week) or 920 hours of service for part-time tutors (about 20 hours/week). It is critical that all tutors commit to 11 months, so that students receive the math tutoring they need to succeed.
Experience in a school setting
Tutors work with students during the week, during normal school hours. Your schedule must be consistent throughout the year. Occasional weekend or evening work may be required for trainings, meetings and/or community service activities. Often, tutors choose to participate in after school activities and some evening school functions such as open houses.
Professional AmeriCorps training
If you are accepted into the program, you will be required to attend trainings. The initial training, called Member Institute, takes place in early August and covers math instruction techniques and the curriculum. Additional required and optional trainings throughout the year cover topics such as math tutoring refreshers, civic engagement and other topics to enhance your own professional development.
Community involvement opportunities
Math Corps tutors engage in their communities outside of their normal tutoring service. As a tutor, you will have the opportunity to become involved in community activities such as volunteering at a local nonprofit, leading after-school programs, etc.

“My time with Math Corps has given me much deeper understanding of the challenges and successes that come with elementary school education. I also find it uplifting to be around fourth and fifth graders. Their sense of curiosity, energy, playfulness, and thoughtfulness all help remind me of the good things in life.”Steve Wickstrom, Math Enrichment Tutor Hear More Stories
