Our Math Classroom Coaches work with small groups of middle school students to increase their math skills and confidence.
By sharing your knowledge and enjoyment of math with middle school students, you help build a foundation for success in high school and beyond. The more math courses students take in high school, the more options they have after graduation. Completion of advanced math classes, like Calculus, are associated with higher rates of high school completion and attainment of post-secondary certifications or degrees.
Sitting in the classroom is by far the fastest and most enjoyable 45 minutes of my week. It is important that students see people (other than parents and teachers) care about them and perhaps it may also inspire them to volunteer in the future.

Do you enjoy middle school math? Would you like to help students feel more confident about their math abilities? If so, we encourage you to volunteer with APIE as a Math Classroom Coach!
