Goulet, John A.


This paper discusses my experience at Bancroft School as a teaching assistant and tutor. I started working at Bancroft School in September of 2014 and culminated my time there at the end of April. I have attended the math periods for three different fourth grade classrooms throughout this time and provided tutoring and guidance to students in order to complete the Interactive Qualifying Project requirements. This paper also covers the different roles I played during my time at the school, the challenges I faced, sample problems, and discussion of the textbook Math in Focus used in the fourth grade published by Marshall Cavendish Education, which applies the Singapore Approach.
