About the Blueprint Math Fellows Program
The Blueprint Math Fellows Program provides intensive, small group math tutoring to students as part of their regular school day. Our tutorial sessions address gaps in foundational mathematics knowledge and promote each student’s ability to problem solve, think critically, and access grade-level coursework. Tutorial groups are small and personalized. Each full-time tutor, known as a “Math Fellow,” works with no more than four students at a time. Tutorial sessions are 45-60 minutes long, highly structured, and research-based. The Math Fellows Program provides each student with an additional opportunity to understand and master math concepts every day of the school year.
Our Math Fellows are also AmeriCorps members and, through their year of national service, make additional contributions to their school and local communities as club leaders, volunteer service day organizers, and coaches. The Math Fellows Program has also become an innovative teacher pipeline. Approximately one out of every four Fellows becomes a full-time teacher, often in the schools where they served as Fellows.
