About Blueprint Schools Network (“Blueprint”)

Founded in 2010, Blueprint Schools Network is a national nonprofit organization that promotes educational equity and improves life outcomes for students. For the last decade, we have run small group math tutoring programs as part of the regular school day both in-person and remotely. Our growing network of more than 1,000 Blueprint Math Fellows past and present have served more than 25,000 students in grades 2-11 at more than 100 schools across the country in California, Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, Missouri, Texas and Tennessee. For the 2021-22 academic year, we expect to partner with districts and charter school networks in Oakland, Pittsburg and San Francisco, (CA), the Denver Metro Region, CO; East Saint Louis (IL), Nashville (TN) and Washington DC.

Why it Matters

Even before the pandemic, students across the country were not receiving proper math support to meet their academic and social emotional developmental needs. With the significant interruption in their education due to COVID-19, students - particularly students of color and those experiencing poverty need targeted math support more than ever. As such, Blueprint Math Fellows play a critical role in addressing an education crisis that has only amplified long-standing injustices in our education system.

About the Math Fellow Role

Blueprint Math Fellows provide students with highly personalized tutoring in mathematics as part of their regular school day and/or after school. In person, Fellows work with groups of up to four students at a time.

Math Fellows deliver individualized lessons and work closely with teachers to accelerate students’ academic achievement. Fellows also build strong relationships with students and increase their self-confidence in math and motivation to do well in school and in life. Our students see their Fellows as mentors, advocates and as passionate adults who make learning math understandable and fun.

Given that many Fellows join Blueprint without much prior teaching or tutoring experience, they receive extensive support from Blueprint Site Managers who provide weekly observation and feedback sessions, core lesson plans, data on student progress and support for classroom management. Training is comprehensive and continues throughout the year.

Responsibilities:

  • Tutor groups of up to four students at a time throughout the school day.
  • Implement daily and weekly lesson plans using a curriculum provided by Blueprint.
  • Use student performance information to set goals, monitor progress and adjust instruction and lesson plans.
  • Communicate regularly with your students’ families and participate in your school’s family outreach events.
  • Collaborate with classroom teachers and Math Fellows Site Manager to ensure tutorial lessons are aligned with classroom instruction.
  • Participate in all Blueprint and school district professional development and training opportunities.
  • Complete 1700 hours of service as an AmeriCorps Member during your 10-month term and participate in AmeriCorps professional development opportunities. (Tutoring time is counted towards this service hour requirement.)
  • Network with our national 2021-22 Blueprint Math Fellow Cohort serving students across the country.

Qualities We See in the Math Fellows Most Appreciated by Students and Their Peers:

  • A team-player attitude with a strong sense of personal accountability and strong communication skills.
  • Entrepreneurial spirit and ability to be flexible and deal with a certain amount of unpredictability.
  • The ability and willingness to go above and beyond to help support students.
  • A positive sense of humor.

  • Proficient with technology (Google Gmail/Docs/Sheets, and MS Office: PowerPoint/Word/Excel).
