Mathematics Teacher (Tutoring) Project


Carolyn
Carolyn tutors students at Mansfeld Middle School.
The Tutoring Project targets college students interested in exploring a mathematics-teaching career. These mathematically talented students enroll in a one-credit class (by application only). Applications are due on April 12th for the fall semester and November 11th for the spring semester. The class, Tutoring in the Schools, Math 196a, meets on Wednesdays from 4:00 - 4:50 P.M. The course focuses on tutoring techniques and practices and multiple approaches to problem solving. These college students tutor three to four hours a week in selected middle and high school mathematics classrooms at $10/hr. In some cases, students will also have the opportunity to work with elementary mathematics coaches. The teachers with whom they work are selected based on their enthusiasm for mathematics and teaching, their student-centered classroom environments, and their knowledge of current NCTM supported practices. These teachers participate in a summer workshop designed to develop their mentoring skills and provide ways to capitalize on assistance in their classrooms.
