Mission Statement

The mission of We Teach Science is to motivate, inspire and mentor K-12 American public school students to achieve excellence in the disciplines of math and science.

Description

Our goal at WTS is to partner STEM professionals with public school students who need support with math and science. Our program uses a unique model of remote tutoring and mentoring, to help build confidence in students and inspire them to thrive in the classroom and beyond. Our program prides itself on excellent data-driven results, student satisfaction and the ongoing support, fulfillment and celebration of our mentors. Our program is unique in that mentors can volunteer and have a significant impact in the lives of their mentees -- all from the comfort of their own desk, via our web-based interactive whiteboard. Being a mentor is a commitment of 1 hour a week, working with the same student for the duration of the school year.

Would you recommend We Teach Science Foundation?

by Helen S. (April 27, 2010)
The We Teach Science Remote Mentoring and Tutoring Program has given me an opportunity to help middle school students learn more about math and its connection to their daily lives in a way that fits my busy schedule. Through the unique online whiteboard environment I can participate at a time which works for both myself and the student without having to waste time stuck in Bay Area traffic. From the first session, I felt a connection with my students and knew that I was making a difference and improving their perception of math and science.
