Making Waves Education Program seeking High School Math and Science Teachers

Overview:
Making Waves is an education program dedicated to ensuring that children from urban, low-income neighborhoods acquire the skills necessary to gain acceptance to college and graduate with a bachelor’s degree. Every year, a cohort or wave of 20-30 fifth-grade students from San Francisco public elementary schools enters the program. Each wave of students stays with the program until they graduate from college. Along the way, they are supported by academic tutoring, SAT-preparation classes, financial aid for tuition costs, and a community of parents, teachers, staff, and fellow students.

The Empowerment Programs provide supplemental tutoring & teaching for high school students who traditionally struggle in core academic courses. Empowerment Teachers are responsible for supporting students in their homework and additionally conduct small skill building classes to assigned students (1 to 4 per class) that meet weekly. For each session, Empowerment Teachers develop specialized, dynamic lessons that empower their students to critically engage academic concepts, gain the skills and confidence necessary for classroom success, and complete homework assignments.
