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 and parent-teacher conferences.
Professional development and math training
If you are accepted into the program, you will be required to attend trainings that will provide you with the skills you need to be a successful math tutor. The initial training covers math practice 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
Many 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.
