Heart Math Tutoring Featured on WCNC

June 6, 2017

Heart Math Tutoring’s Executive Director Emily Elliott met with WCNC’s Eugene Robinson and Colleen Odegaard to discuss Heart’s impact on students and the recent Mission Possible Award granted by Apparo.

“Studies show that school entry math skills impact later achievement of course in math but also in literacy. You need Algebra or Math 1 to get a high school diploma and you need that for the work force and of course to access any STEM careers,” says Heart’s Executive Director Emily Elliott.

“We were awarded this Mission Possible Award by Apparo for the purpose of economic mobility. 50-80 tutors are in each school and the tutors really act as mentors, giving kids exposure to careers or options and building a relationship over 20-25 weeks of the school year.”
