Blueprint Math Fellows are full-time tutors charged with providing
students with highly personalized tutoring in mathematics during
the regular school day. Fellows work with no more than four
students at a time, delivering individualized lessons and working
closely with teachers to accelerate students' academic achievement.
Fellows also work to build strong relationships with students to
help increase their self-confidence and commitment to education.
The Blueprint Fellows program is an opportunity to participate in a
year of service making a difference in the lives of students.
Fellows receive a fellowship stipend as well as benefits.
While teachers have classrooms of 25 or 30 students, Fellows manage
no more than 4 students at a time. This allows for the
individualization of remedial and supplemental instruction in a
safe space, where students are encouraged to engage with one
another and explain their thinking. Fellows individualize lessons
to meet the needs, interests, and passions of their students and
deliver data-driven instruction that not only significantly impacts
student achievement, but inspires students to be lifelong learners.
By using math as the vehicle, Fellows foster critical thinkers,
confident communicators, and engaged citizens who question,
reflect, self-assess, visualize, respond positively to feedback,
persevere, and internalize goal setting as a tool for continuous
self-improvement. Fellows receive curriculum materials, pre-service
