Heart Math Tutoring Fills Critical Gaps in Math for Hundreds of CMS Students

June 17, 2016

Heart is proud to announce that in the 2015/16 school year, 99 percent of Heart students met program growth goals in math, growing in two or more building block concept areas. On average, students doubled the goal – growing in 4.6 concept areas. The goals were set with guidance from math specialists at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools and UNC Charlotte.

“We are proud of our students and know that their tutors left them in a better place than they began, ultimately bringing long-term benefits,” says Emily Elliott, executive director of Heart. “The skills Heart measures are proven to be critical building blocks for success in math, supporting students as they enter higher levels of math, meet graduation requirements, and access career and post-secondary options.”

In addition, more than 90 percent of teachers observed conceptual growth in math and believe Heart had an impact on class work and tests; 96 percent of teachers believe that students showed an increase in confidence and enthusiasm for math as a result of the program; and 74 percent said students became more confident and enthusiastic in subjects other than math as a result of the program.
