Fellows guarantee the academic success of students by focusing intently on individualizing instruction and building personal and meaningful relationships with their students. They will receive all instructional materials, developed by a site-specific curriculum writer, with close alignment to state standards, assessments, and instruction particular to the school. The curriculum writer will preview all materials with Fellows the week prior to its delivery to students, to answer specific questions.
- Fellows tutor in math only.
- Fellows contact families each week about student progress. This communication forges trust, creates relationships and keeps parents aware of the successes and needs of their children.
- Every site has a coordinator who is responsible for observing, training and assisting Fellows through the entire year. Fellows will be observed regularly and must be hungry for feedback.
"I really love the work with the kids. It's an awesome experience...the second half of the year especially, the kids appreciated what we were doing, and I really appreciate them." -- Aiden Douglas, 2nd year Match Corps: Lawrence Fellow
