Heart Math Tutoring’s newest region, Winston-Salem, NC, will launch programming during the 2023/24 school year! HMT Winston-Salem is excited to partner with Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools to provide programming at no cost to families thanks to support from the philanthropic community.
Reflecting national trends, early math support is a critical need for students in Winston-Salem, NC. Our community is missing out on significant potential when just 44% of Winston 4th graders are proficient in math. Teachers and families often have limited capacity to provide the individualized support students need to develop a concrete understanding of numbers (“number sense”), but volunteers can help. HMT’s activity-based, structured curriculum and placement of a Program Coordinator at the school site enables hundreds of volunteers to be effective with a commitment of one hour per week while minimizing extra work for school staff.
Established in 2013, Heart Math Tutoring has served more than 4,500 students to date in Charlotte, NC and Charleston, SC, with 97% of those students making meaningful growth in math on program pre/post assessments, and over 90% of teachers consistently report that students are more confident and enthusiastic towards math as a result of the program.
Heart Math Tutoring operates in partnership with Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools.
