In August 2014, Math Lab at SHS was launched in collaboration with Match Education to provide daily math tutoring sessions at Stamford High School. Since that time, SPEF has assumed full ownership of the program, providing daily tutoring to 80-90 students each year who need additional support to achieve success in high school.
SPEF provides an extensive screening process to assure that all tutors are proficient in math and excel in a tutoring dynamic. All of the students enrolled in the program meet with tutors for a full period each day in a ratio of no more than 3:1, and are showing significant improvement in their foundational math skills. In 2020-2021, SPEF is serving 65 students enrolled in hybrid learning with live classes on Google Classroom, so students continue to receive individualized support daily.
