Heart Math Tutoring
Heart Math Tutoring seeks to ensure that all students have the strong foundation in math and enthusiasm for academics needed for long-term success, by helping schools use volunteers as tutors. Community members commit one hour per week to work as one-on-one tutors during the school day, using Heart's structured curriculum and receiving support from an on-site Program Coordinator.
Heart Math Tutoring is a math intervention program that recruits and supports volunteers to work as one-on-one tutors during the school day in high-poverty elementary schools. These tutors work with the students for an hour per week. School staff recommends students for the program who are identified as one or more years below grade level in math. Heart then assesses each student to determine his/her conceptual gaps and provides instruction at each student's level. In addition to providing academic support, tutors act as mentors, providing much-needed encouragement that can have a long-term positive impact on students' confidence and enthusiasm towards academics.
Heart uses a CMS-approved, Common Core-based curriculum designed specifically for volunteer tutors. The curriculum includes hands-on activities, clear goals and learning levels, instruction targeted to meet each student's specific needs, and pre- and post-assessments measuring student growth. To date, 98% of more than 750 Heart students have met program growth targets in math.
