We Teach Science Foundation’s mission is to inspire students to excel in math and science. Our foundation’s core offering is the Remote Tutoring and Mentoring (RTM) program.
RTM connects mentors and students remotely, one on one, using the Internet for synchronous mentoring sessions during schools hours. Using a web-based, interactive whiteboard and communications platform, RTM gives students and mentors the flexibility of connecting from two separate locations. Mentors are adults with careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) who are interested in mentoring and tutoring students in math and science. The program runs throughout the school year, exposing students to Math on a regular basis, building trust, discovering learning styles, and customizing content delivery. The ability to customize the learning for each student independent of in class pace is crucial to the success of the program with struggling students. Students are selected by a combination of economic need, test scores, classroom grades, and teacher assessment.
