The Work and Why It Matters

Nationwide, students are experiencing a significant interruption in their formal education due to COVID-19 and resulting school closures. While educators and students alike have many unprecedented challenges to overcome this upcoming school year, educators report that their top concern is students falling behind in math. This concern is heightened for educators in high poverty districts who teach predominantly black or Latinx students.

Now more than ever we need talented, caring, and capable people committed to supporting our students in their academic and social development. Finding academic interventions that address inequities that historically underserved students face is one of our nation's most urgent challenges.

Position Overview

Saga SITE (Social Impact Tutoring Experience) is a math tutoring opportunity available for the 2021-2022 school year through Saga Education. Saga offSITE Math Fellows virtually serve one of our partnered public high schools in New York City while working from home. Saga's tutoring model is embedded in the regular school day and fellows manage a small cohort of approximately 36 ninth and tenth grade students over the course of the school year. During a typical school day, fellows will work with up to six students at a time, three of whom will work independently on a blended-learning platform, and facilitate lessons during six class periods per day. Fellows will implement Saga's proprietary curriculum via Saga Connect to foster academic success and help students reach their goals. Saga Math Fellows promote academic success by focusing intently to provide individualized instruction and build strong, meaningful relationships with their students during their year of service. In addition to offering academic support, Saga Math Fellows also serve as student advocates and mentors.
