The MathsMakers Opportunity
Are you passionate about helping students from disadvantaged backgrounds improve their maths attainment? Would you like to work with a dynamic organisation with a proven track record in maths intervention?
MathsMakers, a finalist for the Teach First Innovation Award 2018, partners with schools to run innovative maths intervention programmes. We combine classroom instruction and support from Year 12 mentors to help students strengthen their core maths skills, boost their problem-solving skills and develop confidence in their learning. We work with students in years 7 to 11 who attend our weekly sessions after-school or on Saturday mornings.
MathsMakers is looking to appoint instructors for our programmes in secondary schools in Harrow and Brent. Programmes run for 15 weeks, Sept 2019 - March 2020. The instructor position is on a freelance basis. We pay for contact time with students and for some time needed for preparation and follow-up for each session. We also offer continuing opportunities for learning and development, together with regular supervision and support.
Working with MathsMakers offers an opportunity to become part of a friendly team of professionals working to make a real difference to the maths learning and confidence of young people. Instructors in our team include private maths tutors keen to expand their expertise to classroom work and PGCE students building their teaching experience. Our positions also appeal to maths teachers who remain passionate about teaching but are keen to work with a reduced time commitment.

What Do Our Instructors Say?
"The mentor-mentee relationship is key to the success of the programme. I have observed most mentors to be excellent role models and effective communicators. Mentees have appreciated the close attention from mentors and have made progress with their maths."
