The mission of Heart Math Tutoring is to ensure all elementary students develop the strong foundation in math and enthusiasm for academics needed for long-term success, by helping schools use volunteers as tutors.
Student-centered – We do what is best for students, first.
Gratitude – We are grateful for volunteers, donors, teachers, and everyone who gives to help students succeed. We celebrate accomplishments and the opportunity to make a positive difference.
Growth mindset – As an organization, we are constantly learning, growing, and adjusting to best advance our mission. Team members and staff embrace feedback and opportunities for growth. Our students experience progress and learn how to further improve to reach their goals.
Precision and professionalism – We give top-notch service to our schools and volunteers and precise data analysis to stakeholders.
Civic Engagement –The community succeeds together.
1. We hold students and all parties to high expectations.
2. HMT volunteers can be effective within a one-hour per week commitment (approximately).
3. We limit additional work created for school staff. We are here to add resources to schools, not to drain resources.
4. We execute a responsive, high-touch model to create a positive experience for everyone involved.
Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
We believe that diversity of thought and experiences make our team stronger, and we also know that our students benefit from working with adults from all backgrounds. The team at Heart Math Tutoring is specifically committed to supporting racial equity, both internally and externally, and is in the midst of several trainings and initiatives focused on supporting an inclusive work environment and providing culturally competent support to our students, >90% of whom are people of color. Also, as an equal opportunity employer, Heart Math Tutoring is committed to providing employment opportunities to all qualified individuals and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, religion, sex, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, age, marital status, veteran status, pregnancy, parental status, genetic information or characteristics, or any other basis prohibited by applicable law. Our Board of Directors, leadership team, and entire staff are proactively networking and recruiting to increase diversity at HMT by race, gender, and age, and we strongly encourage individuals from all backgrounds to join the team as staff members, volunteers, donors, and leaders!
