The Tutor Scholar Program 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 accepted all year, and students begin to receive acceptance letters in April for the fall semester and in November 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 as well as multiple approaches to problem solving. These college students tutor three to four hours per week in selected elementary, middle and high school mathematics classrooms. Students earn a stipend up to $575 per semester for their dedicated, reliable involvement. Students that participate both semesters will have the opportunity to receive an educational award of $1221 for their service as well. 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 state standards and supported effective practices.
