Upward Bound Program

Mathematics Tutoring for the Upward Bound Program, Waco/University High Schools through the Waco ISD and ESC Region 12, 2019

The Upward Bound Program is an initiative by the U.S. Department of Education for “high school students from low-income families; and high school students from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor’s degree.” The goal of this program is “increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education.” I worked as a paid tutor in general mathematics/physics as well as for the math/science portion of the ACT and SAT tests.

I acted as a tutor from November 2019 through March 2020. Although my time as a tutor was cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic, I was unable to continue tutoring after graduation due to my enrollment in graduate school.
