Thrive 4 All programs are centered around math tutoring for a few reasons. At its core, math teaches logic, critical thinking, real-world problem solving, and growth mindset—all of which are essential and transferable skills for life after high school. We also recognize that STEM jobs are the future, and we want to start early in preparing our students to be future engineers, data scientists, researchers, doctors, etc. In Nashville, math achievement is currently the lowest performing indicator on the TN Report Card. 24 of 74 (32%) elementary schools and 25 of 50 (50%) middle schools across the county are below 10% in math achievement.
In partnership with MNPS, we provide math tutors for the highest need schools in the district.
We provide math tutoring to students in need for free. For the after-school program, our tutoring focus is on middle school students in grades 5-8.
RECRUITING AND RETAINING HIGH-QUALITY DIVERSE TEACHERS
The research is clear: students are more likely to be successful when they have a high-quality teacher who looks like them. Our goal is to have a top-notch teacher team that is reflective of the backgrounds of the students we serve.
