Programs_SPEFMathTutoring1 In August 2014, SPEF launched a tutoring program in collaboration with Match Education to provide daily math tutoring sessions to 100 ninth grade students at Stamford High School. In 2015, SPEF assumed full ownership of the program and will continue to work with 90-100 ninth grade students each school year. SPEF provides an extensive screening process to assure that all tutors are not only proficient in math, but also excel in a tutoring dynamic. All of the students enrolled in the program meet with tutors for a full period each day, in a two to one ratio, showing significant improvement in their math skills.
