We seek:

  • college or university professors who want to give back and expand the mathematics pipeline,

  • experienced school teachers with strong mathematics backgrounds,

  • individuals with a strong background in engineering, computer science, or similar fields who will enable students to apply mathematical reasoning in applied courses.

Counselor/TAs at any summer program (LA, NYC, and Residential)

Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics, a project of the Art of Problem Solving Initiative, Inc., is seeking undergraduate students or recent graduates to be counselors and TAs for a summer program that gives everyone a chance to excel in mathematics. You'll create a vibrant social experience for kids who are discovering for the first time that there are other people who like doing mathematics. As a counselor, you'll have both an academic and a non-academic role:

  • be a role model and mentor to the students,

  • supervise students and run activities each day for them to relax and socialize, and

  • assist in mathematics courses: guide students through challenging problems, assist instructors, and help give feedback to students on their work.

We're looking for counselors who have a lot of initiative and maturity, who will inspire the students to do better, and who are good at math. The camp's academics will be challenging to everyone, with courses on topics such as combinatorics, number theory, problem solving, graph theory, game theory, and more, so you'll get plenty of chance to stretch your mathematical muscles. You will have a chance to take time off, but this is a very intense experience and you should be prepared for it!

We are look both for counselors to work at our non-residential programs in Los Angeles and New York City, as well as at our residential programs in upstate New York and Southern California.
