Position Description: This is an ideal position for a student with a strong enough mathematics background to tutor middle school level mathematics. The position will require a combination of helping to prepare childhood candidates for the math section of the Childhood Content Specialty Test for childhood certification and tutoring in the after school program of a local middle or elementary school.

This position is designed to develop valuable teaching skills which would enhance the resume of any teacher education candidate. The position will also enable the student to “get a foot in the door” at local schools. Although primarily intended for SOE candidates, the position is open to all Aquinas Leaders with a strong background in mathematics and an interest in working with children.

Dr. Reynolds will work closely with the student in preparing materials and reflecting on the children’s mathematical thinking.

Application Instructions: Students should submit a letter of interest and a resume to Dr. S. Reynolds by November 21, 2017. Interviews will be conducted and students will be selected for the spring term.
