But data shows that students who have Math Corps tutors can close those gaps. After a semester of tutoring, our students – who include those eligible for free and reduced-price lunch, English Language Learners, and students of color – exceeded their growth target by 2-3 months!
When we help all students become proficient in math, we set them up for success in school and in the 21st century workplace.
With so many students struggling in math, it’s a huge challenge for school districts to provide the individual attention they need to get back on track. At the average school, giving each the individual attention they need would take 230 hours per week and require 7 additional staff members.
