Center at IUPUI Aiming to Change Education

INDIANAPOLIS Ind. (WISH) – A new tutoring center at IUPUI is aiming to change the way we look at education. It uses an open space concept and student tutors to teach kids math.

Imagine you need a tutor for math; usually you only have two options. One, pay for a tutor outside of school which can be expensive or go to an in school study group. At IUPUI, one researcher has come up with a new method that’s cheaper and can help students earn a grade and a half higher by the end of the year.

Nico Cruz is a student at IUPUI but he’s also a tutor at the Math Assistance Center.

“What makes this place fantastic is the different amount of people you work with,” said Cruz. “People who have gone through these classes can help you with so much more than just ‘this is a problem and this is how you solve it’. We can teach different tips and tricks on how to go through different sets of problems.”
