MENTORING

Studies show that girls with interest in mathematics often lose confidence in their abilities and drop out of mathematics classes even though there is no corresponding decline in their grades or achievement level. This loss of confidence and interest may be impacted by relationships with a mentor or role model.

Many of our WAM consultants are available to work as mentors, either with an individual or with small groups of students. They communicate the importance and power of facility in mathematics. They provide a listening ear, encouragement and support for students' dreams.
