Summary

Achievement in math is one of the most salient predictors of future success for school-age students, but students who lack access to academic support and resources such as tutoring services are often left behind. In the past, educators like Stanford Mathematics Education professor Jo Boaler have implemented blended learning structures in school curriculum with significant success but have struggled with creating long-term change. This research project introduces a tutoring program to middle schoolers that emphasizes math learning for problem-solving and goes beyond the constraints of the traditional classroom environment.
