Math Corps Philadelphia (Philly) is a Math tutoring/mentoring program for secondary students who attend Philadelphia schools.  A core belief of Math Corps is that “there is a unique greatness in every child.” – Stephen Kahn

Math Corps Philly draws its inspiration and philosophy from the highly successful Math Corps at Wayne State University (https://www.mathcorps.org/about/).  The program was founded by Stephen Kahn and Leonard Boehm in 1992.  Cleveland State University (http://www.mathcorpscle.org/) started Math Corps in 2012 and continues to have success.

The Math Corps Philosophy incorporates:

  • A Sense of Family
  • High Standards and Expectations
  • Success in Math
  • Challenge Rather Than Remediation
  • Students Teaching Students
