Volunteer Middle School Math Tutors Needed In Lower East Side

Save to Favorites

Common Denominator

  • 25 people are interested

Common Denominator (C/D), formerly Top Honors, is a free math tutoring program serving NYC middle school students (5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders) who struggle with math. C/D seeks volunteers who can make the same weekly commitment to one of these time slots from October - May. School holidays are observed, which averages out to be 2-3 Saturdays per month.

UPDATE: Since 03/38 we have offered virtual tutoring, and are prepared to continue virtual tutoring in the fall. If you are interested, please email us at volunteers@cdmath.org

Our tutors are NYC professionals looking for a meaningful, long-term, weekend volunteer experience. Volunteers are compassionate, engaging, communicative, patient, and comfortable with basic middle school math concepts. You should be comfortable working fairly autonomously within the structure of our program. We love people who can run with things and ask questions.

We believe anyone who must go about daily activities can do our level of math. For example, if you can calculate the tip on your dinner bill without a calculator, you're set. Can you convert a fraction to a decimal and think of a real life application of it? That's the kind of stuff that we do. If you're game, join us!

Prior experience is not required! C/D provides basic training, curriculum, and materials. We're looking for role models to middle schoolers. We find that kind, patient, and enthusiastic volunteers match well with our student population. Come join our volunteer family!
