US Math Recovery Council is excited to be offering courses with Lake Erie College, a higher education institution in Painesville, Ohio.
Lake Erie College, the College of Education, will be offering Add+VantageMR® Course 1 to pre-service teachers beginning in July. The pre-service teachers will in turn provide tutoring services to local students several times a week. The program is newly created through a grant LEC received from the State of Ohio.
Jenn Miller is the Director of Professional Development & Graduate Outreach within LEC's School of Education. "After hearing about the (USMRC) philosophy, I was sold on us pursuing this as a resource and offering to districts," she said. "It fit right into the afterschool tutoring grant we received."
Jenn was a teacher for 17 years previous to her position at Lake Erie College. "Having access to something like Math Recovery would have changed my approach as a math teacher," Jenn said. "For our students to have this understanding about teaching math will shift the future of math education."
