Did you know that:

  • only 44% of economically disadvantaged students in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) are proficient in 3rd - 8th grade math?
  • Heart Math Tutoring recruits and trains volunteers to serve as one-on-one tutors for CMS elementary students who are behind in math?
  • 98% of students to date have met Heart Tutoring's program growth goals?

Your Addition Makes a Difference! Volunteer with Heart Math Tutoring.

Our mission at Heart Math Tutoring is to ensure that all elementary students develop the strong foundation in math and enthusiasm for academics needed for long-term success, by helping schools use volunteers as tutors. And, we are looking for volunteers to serve as one-on-one math tutors for the upcoming 2021/22 school year. Approximately 1,400 elementary students in 23 CMS partner schools will need tutors.

Heart Math Tutoring provides a fun way to build relationships with Charlotte-area elementary students while delivering academic skills crucial to their success. Volunteers commit 1 hour per week starting in early November (time slots will be provided once you sign-up to volunteer). Heart provides an easy-to-follow curriculum with engaging activities and games, and a program coordinator is available during sessions to make sure things run smoothly. In person AND virtual opportunities are available!

To sign up to be a tutor for the 2021/2022 school year, please visit http://heartmathtutoring.org/become-a-volunteer/. A member of our team will contact you via email with the next steps.

With gratitude,

The Heart Math Tutoring Team

Mission Statement

Heart Math Tutoring seeks to ensure that all elementary students have the foundational math skills and enthusiasm for academics they need to be successful. Most students who are struggling in math lack foundational number sense skills that support higher levels of learning and allow them to progress with their class. These students need one-on-one attention and instruction at their level. We believe that volunteer time is one of the only resources currently available to public schools that is not yet fully leveraged. We know that Charlotte's community cares deeply about the success of its children, and when given an opportunity to help that is effective and manageable on a wide scale, volunteers will make a tremendous impact on the academic trajectory of those students who are in most need of support.

Description

Heart Math Tutoring is a math intervention program that recruits and trains volunteers to work in CMS schools as tutors, delivering a proven curriculum which includes materials in one-on-one sessions during the school day. Teachers and school administrators recommend students for the program who are identified as one or more years below grade level in math. Heart then assesses each students served to determine his/her conceptual gaps and provides instruction at each student’s level in the form of 30 minutes to an hour one-on-one tutoring sessions twice per week.

Heart provides the curriculum and manages the volunteer tutors, allowing volunteers to bring struggling students up to grade level without creating additional work for school staff.

Heart uses a CMS-approved, Common Core-based curriculum designed specifically for volunteer tutors. It includes hands-on activities, clear goals and learning levels, instruction targeted to meet each student’s specific needs, and pre/post-assessments measuring student growth.
