The Tutoring and Learning Center
The Tutoring and Learning Center (TLC) exists to close the opportunity gap in mathematics by providing technology-enhanced high-dosage tutoring to local public high school students at nearby partner high schools. Our research-driven model, which employs Columbia and Barnard tutors, is also a design project. We hope to create a quality tutoring program that is replicable by other institutions of higher learning.
The TLC aims to help high school students become effective, self-driven learners both in mathematics and in life. Through our high-dosage tutoring practices and our use of technology, we hope to 1) improve students’ conceptual understanding of mathematics; and 2) convey that mathematics is for everyone, that all learners can achieve understanding through effort and practice. Our tutors serve as learning coaches; they question, guide, and model effective learning strategies.
We are currently seeking tutors to work with high school students who are enrolled in Geometry during the 2019-2020 academic year. We do not expect tutors to be proficient in Geometry. However, our tutors must be willing to attend a weekly training course that explores Geometry foundations as well as the TLC approach to tutoring. All training and training exercises are paid.
Tutors help students learn academic material, develop study skills and independent learning habits, and promote college readiness. All tutors must complete an orientation and participate in ongoing professional development throughout the semester.
