Benefits & Commitment Tutor Stories

Math Corps Works

  • My role is about more than increasing math scores. It is allowing my students to see their potential as great thinkers and problem solvers. When I hear my students say, “Wow! That was easy,” or “Oh, I know this!” it is music to my ears.

    Jennifer Spellacy, Math Corps Tutor — Saint Joseph
  • I have been so grateful to Math Corps for providing this opportunity to explore teaching as a profession. This has taught me that I love teaching in a way that I feel really roots students in a deep understanding of mathematical concepts by incorporating concrete manipulatives.

    Meghan Exner, Math Corps Tutor — Saint Paul
  • Math Corps helps students gain confidence. It helps raise their test scores. It helps them just become a better person.

    Cheri Hoheisel, Parent of 8th grade Math Corps participant whose scores went from deficient to college ready
  • The additional support of Math Corps allows our just-below average students to receive the targeted instruction they need to keep them from slipping behind. With support of data and consistent communication of teachers and the tutor, the students’ progress was undeniable.

    Tom Ross, Internal Coach — Armstrong Elementary
  • The students are missing a couple of building blocks that are holding them back. Math Corps is an efficient way of building the skills they need.

  • You don’t have to be a "math person" to do Math Corps—I’m not. You just need to be willing to help students who need that little extra to get them back up to where they need to be.

    Dan Carlson, Math Corps Tutor — Motley
  • I didn’t realize how great it would feel to have a student get excited and say, “I get it now!” I know that being a Math Corps tutor is where I am supposed to be.
