Math Tutor Job Description
Sprout and S.T.E.M. is a nonprofit led by young professionals, including medical students attending the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. The organization offers various opportunities for paid service work and research. Further, these roles are robust with experiential learning and will improve your readiness for the workforce or postgraduate education.
Sprout and S.T.E.M. is hiring tutors in algebra and geometry for the 2022-2023 academic year.
Pay: $20.00/hour and reimbursement for travel expenses.
Schedule: Sessions are hosted twice per week at Nathanael Greene Middle School on Chalkstone Ave in Providence from 3:00 to 5:00 PM. Tutors are required to attend at least one session per week over a 12-week span in the spring from early February through late April.
Requirements: Prior tutoring experience and a sound understanding of algebra and/or geometry.
Research: This position includes the opportunity to conduct an independent research project, for which you could receive primary authorship.
Personal growth and networking: You will further develop important core competencies such as Service, Cultural Competence, Verbal Communication, and Social Skills. You will also join a network of medical students, as well as pre-health students from Brown University, Providence College, the University of Rhode Island, and Rhode Island College.
Roadmap for Tutors
Sprout and S.T.E.M. has tailored a roadmap to support tutors who are interested in joining the organization throughout their undergraduate study. This roadmap showcases how students can become progressively more involved, if they so choose, by taking on more substantial roles and learning each level of the organization along the way.
After serving as a tutor in years one and two, you will have the opportunity to design and conduct an independent research project in year three as a research assistant.
By year four, you serve the organization as an intern and earn academic credit through your institution's experiential learning department. On a part-time basis, you would lead as an administrator or coordinator, overseeing important activities such as the tutoring or research programs. In doing so, you become eligible to apply for a seat on the organization's Board of Directors.

As you become more involved and take on new roles, you will further develop important core competencies, such as Cultural Competence and Critical Thinking, that will result in personal growth and the maturation of new perspectives.
Moreover, Sprout and S.T.E.M. provides a number of unique experiences and valuable talking points for interviews with employers or admissions committees. A large proportion of our team is represented by pre-medical and pre-dental students who are taking a creative approach to building their applications. In recent years, this strategy has proven effective as nearly two dozen former staff members have been accepted to medical, dental, and graduate schools.
