THE STORY:

I first got involved with Boston Partners in Education back in 2010.  As a volunteer in their Math Rules program, I tutor elementary school students who are struggling with Math.  It's my third year and I have seen the benefit the students get from the extra help and I am very proud of the strides the kids have made in the classroom.  The programs also benefit the teachers who are often spread too thin with the number of students in their often overcrowded classrooms.  The volunteers lend an extra hand to those who need it most while giving teachers another resource.  These kids are often enthusiatic about learning, but don't get the extra help they need and Boston Partners is doing their best to bridge that gap.  Please help me support this program and get more tutors and volunteers into the classroom to help give these students a better chance to reach their dreams.

 

Details on Boston Partners in Education -

Founded in 1966, Boston Partners in Education enhances the academic achievement and nurtures the personal growth of Boston's public school students by providing them with focused, individualized in-school volunteer support.

Boston Partners in Education has tutored and mentored K-12 students in the Boston Public Schools for over 45 years. Our trained volunteers, who serve as academic mentors, help students gain the skills, self-confidence, and the motivation they need to succeed in school and in life.

We are working to close the achievement gap. Students with academic mentors improve their scores on Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) exams,  develop a love for reading and math, and, most importantly, stay in school and graduate!

Teachers and mentors report that students receiving extra attention during the school day show an increased interest in school, improved academic performance in math and literacy, enhanced self-esteem, and a better work ethic.

Boston Partners in Education’s unique model of recruiting, screening, training, matching, and supporting academic mentors who not only tutor, but also build a bond with their students over time, has a proven track record of success.

During the 2011-2012 academic year, we matched 3,729 students in 64 schools throughout the city with 655 volunteers.
