The Math Motivators program relies solely on professional actuaries and college student volunteers. The students served do not have access to tutoring, or cannot afford it. The Math Motivators Program provides math tutoring in the high schools, free of charge.
Three years ago, the Math Motivators program launched in Hartford, with the help of thirteen students from the University of Connecticut, tutoring in one high school.
Today, the Math Motivators program is running in Hartford and Chicago. Tutoring is taking place at four high schools in Hartford and three high schools in Chicago. The program engages over 150 corporate actuary and college student volunteers.
Plans to expand the program to Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota, Seattle, Washington, Portland, Maine, New York, New York and Lincoln/Omaha, Nebraska are underway.
