Description/Responsibilities: 
Does education reform interest you? Do you want to help close the achievement gap in public schools? You should consider joining the Match Corps: Lawrence which is a full-time, 10.5-month urban education math tutoring fellowship. We are recruiting smart, idealistic, relentless people to work full-time during the 2013-2014 school year in two turnaround schools in Lawrence, Massachusetts. Match Corps: Lawrence is a full-time, in-school, professional tutoring corps similar to what Match Charter Public Schools have done in Boston since 2004. Each Fellow works with two students at a time each period of the school day, and will have a personal caseload of 12 students all year long. Fellows will play a significant role in transforming two chronically failing high schools, will drive student achievement by providing individualized instruction, and will build personal and meaningful relationships with urban students and their families during this year of service. Match Corps: Lawrence is an elite program. In previous years, we have received more than 20 applicants for every position and only select from the top 10%. Although Fellows must have strong 9th and 10th grade math skills, we accept applicants from all majors. Match Corps: Lawrence fellows must have a bachelor's degree. The program is open to any adult who is willing to commit to a full-time service year. Ideal candidates will include recent college graduates, mid-career individuals, and retirees. We seek a diverse workforce. Spanish language proficiency is not required, but is valued. In considering applications, we primarily look for a strong academic record, coaching or tutoring experience, and a readiness to rise to the many demands and challenges that arise when working with at-risk youth. We need idealistic and driven people who are hungry for consistent feedback. We need anyone who will commit to working tirelessly for one year to erase, not narrow, the achievement gap.
