Top Tutoring Firm and Education Nonprofit Team up to Offer Free Math Tutoring for Bay Area Students

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In an effort to bridge the math achievement gap impacting low-income students, a local tutoring company and philanthropic organization have joined forces to bring free, high-impact math tutoring to 7th through 12th graders in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Alexander Tutoring, a top Bay Area tutoring company, and Enliven Learning Partners, a 501(c)(3) philanthropic organization that funds educational programming for underserved students, teamed up to create Andromeda Math Partners (AMP). This non-profit education program pairs professional tutors with economically disadvantaged students to deliver free, high-quality math tutoring.

Parents of students who need math help can sign up for tutoring by emailing Students are eligible for free tutoring if they receive free or reduced-price meals at school. AMP has reached out to public and private schools throughout the San Francisco Bay Area to make them aware of the program.

Tutoring is available in all math courses required for high school graduation and advanced subjects – including pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, pre-calculus, and calculus. AMP takes an innovative approach to math education to support the academic and life success of low-income students by combining math, meta-cognitive skill development and mentorship.

More than three quarters of California students do not meet the state standards in mathematics, according to Nation’s Report Card, a national assessment of student achievement. The achievement gap is especially pronounced among California’s lower-income students, who rank 41st in the U.S. in math scores compared to non-low-income students, who rank 5th. With the switch to remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, math scores dropped even further particularly among Black and Hispanic students, and have remained below pre-pandemic levels despite statewide efforts to help students catch up.

AMP’s tutors are highly trained professionals with diverse backgrounds and extensive experience working with young people. The program integrates individualized strength-based math instruction with metacognitive skill building and mentorship. Through the program, students develop math skills and critical capacities including executive functioning, critical thinking, problem solving strategies and self-advocacy.

Since launching as a pilot program in January 2022, AMP has delivered more than 5,000 hours of tutoring to over 180 students. In the 2022 to 2023 academic year, the median student tutored by the program saw their scores on the standardized math assessment known as Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) increase 25% above nationally normed expectations. The program consistently achieves parent satisfaction rates of 96% or higher as well as strong student renewal rates, most recently 92%.

Success in math, particularly advanced math courses, can give students an advantage in college admissions and set them on a path toward high-earning careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Helping students of all backgrounds succeed in math during middle and high school helps narrow the racial wealth gap and prepare a future workforce that can flourish.
