Note: 2021-2022 MfA SD Math Tutor Corps is not offered due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Since 2014, the MfA SD Math Tutor Corps at UC San Diego's Eleanor Roosevelt College brings together several UC San Diego organizations to support math students at Lincoln High School in southeast San Diego. UC San Diego undergraduates take a 2-unit course and learn how to tutor mathematics from MfA SD Master Teaching Fellows alumni.
While students take the course, they serve as tutors for Lincoln High School students in math classes for at least four hours each week. Students work in algebra and intermediate algebra classes at Lincoln, courses where the greatest need exists. Students acquire real-world skills as math tutors while making an important contribution to an area school.
