VIRTUAL: Volunteer Math Tutor

Make a Difference in a Student’s Life

Join EnCorps’ STEMx Tutors program to virtually tutor math to middle school students who are under-performing in Foundational Math, Pre-Algebra and Algebra 1. 

As a volunteer math tutor, you prepare students for the rigor of high school mathematics and establish the foundational knowledge needed to pursue a college education that prepares students for a career in an increasingly technical world.

EnCorps STEMx Tutors make a significant difference in a student’s relationship with math: 84% of students who take part in the program increased their math scores in the 2021-22 academic year!


Choose When You Tutor One Hour, Twice a Week

The STEMx Tutors program is designed for busy professionals like you. As a STEMx Tutor, you commit to tutoring one hour, twice a week. You choose the 1:1 or 2:1 student-to-tutor ratio. 

As a 1:1 tutor, you will determine the day and time of your virtual tutoring sessions with your student. In turn, the 2:1 tutoring sessions take place for one hour, twice a week between 2:00 - 5:00 p.m. PST.

We ask that you commit to tutoring for a minimum of one semester with the option to renew. Many of our tutors have been in the program for three years.


EnCorps Support

EnCorps provides its volunteer tutors with training and support. Your dedicated Program Coordinator will provide you access to our Google Classroom where you will find a plethora of resources, invite you to online seminars, and offer the option to join our annual Learning Summit where you can network with other tutors as well as STEM professionals who are exploring STEM teaching through the EnCorps STEM Teachers program.
