Description/Responsibilities: 
Are you interested in education reform? Do you want to help close the achievement gap in public schools? Consider joining Match Corps: Lawrence, a full-time, in-school, professional math tutoring fellowship. We are seeking smart, idealistic, relentless people for our 2013-2014 cohort of tutors. Match Corps: Lawrence follows the high-dosage tutoring model that Match Charter Public Schools have used in Boston since 2004. Each Fellow works with two students at a time for each period of the school day, and will have a personal caseload of 12 students for the entire school year. Fellows will play a significant role in transforming two chronically failing high schools in Lawrence. They will also drive student achievement by providing individualized instruction, and will build personal and meaningful relationships with 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%. Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree, and although Fellows must have strong 9th and 10th grade math skills, we accept applicants from all majors. The program is open to any adult who is willing to commit to a full-time service year. Ideal candidates include recent college graduates, mid-career individuals, and retirees. 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 develop from working with at-risk youth. We need idealistic and driven people who are hungry for consistent feedback, and who will commit to working tirelessly for one year to erase, not narrow, the achievement gap. Since Lawrence has a significantly high number of Spanish-speaking students, we are actively seeking candidates with Spanish fluency or proficiency. Could you commit yourself to a year of service in an urban school? Could you take on the challenge of propelling the academic growth of a small caseload of urban students? If you’re up for the task, apply now. For more information and updates, like us on Facebook: www.facebook.com/matcheducation
