Mastering Mathematics, the TLC math program, began in 1999 when the Federal government expanded America Reads to include America Counts. Since then, it has been the fastest growing program within the Tufts Literacy Corps. Math tutors work at local schools, in after school programs and on the Tufts campus. They help children in grades one through eight master the ways of numbers, from counting to 100, memorizing times tables, and knowing that ½ and .5 are both 50%.
Like all TLC tutors, math tutors meet with Dr. Krug regularly to talk about teaching, learning and their tutoring agendas.
