Job Description: Professor Heffernan invites Federal Work Study students to spend their volunteer time and their normal work study hours assisting in the Non-Profit ASSISTment project. WPI's ASSISTment project provides web-based tutoring to students in the Worcester Public Schools. They do nightly homework and students get immediate feedback while teachers get reports on how the students are doing. Work study students and volunteers will be writing mathematic explanations and hint messages for students so they can learn better while they are doing their homework. Volunteer students will be able to spend some time at Burncoat Middle School to see their work in action and do some tutoring of middle school students while getting direction from the teachers on what content to build to better serve our schools involved in the program.
