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 due 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 for their dedicated, reliable involvement. 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.
