Denver Math Fellows
2013-2014 and 2014-2015 School Years
CURRENT and WAITLIST OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE
The Denver Math Fellows, a comprehensive tutoring program that aims to
accelerate student achievement in mathematics. We are currently seeking
fellows for Denver Public Schools in Denver, CO.
Fellows play an integral role in heightening student achievement in schools
across the country. On a daily basis, Fellows build individualized lessons
and plan activities that help to fill in academic gaps students may have to
strengthen academic performance inside the classroom. During the course of
the year, Fellows are building strong relationships that help to increase
each student's self-confidence in and commitment to his/her education,
helping to foster a positive future for each student.
While teachers have classrooms of 25 or 30 students, Fellows manage no more
than 4 students at a time. This allows for the individualization of remedial
and supplemental instruction. Fellows are charged with focusing on the
individual needs of their students, helping to bolster and accelerate
student achievement while helping to close any skill gaps that may exist.
