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.
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.
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.
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.
I get to apply skills I learned in college to teach math to school students. And I find it rewarding that I can make a difference in their success. I like being part of their becoming more confident as they improve upon their math skills.
