What is multisensory math?

MFM Bar Squiggle Green 1

Multisensory math is a method that involves all the senses simultaneously. We also take the time to break down vocabulary and make it meaningful to students. Our systematic approach helps students move grade levels in months, not years. We close the gap!

We use the latest research-based techniques with our students in an all-online environment. Teachers enjoy working from the comfort of their home and having the freedom to do what works instead of being bound by a state-mandated curriculum.

In short, we do what works!

All training is included. We welcome any applicant with experience working with students in mathematics and have a deep desire to be part of a mission to help differently wired students succeed in mathematics.

The Multisensory Math Teacher/Specialist position might be for you if…

You’re a research and pedagogy nerd. You really love to read research papers or read education books and happily apply what you’re learning to your students. Sometimes at social functions, you say, “You know what the research says about that?” drawing glazed looks from your friends and family.

+ You’re meticulous and probably a bit of a perfectionist but know how to be flexible.
+ You seek software and tech to automate a lot of your busy work.
+ You love the puzzle of a student who doesn’t seem to learn like anyone else.
+ You see a problem in a system in the workplace and have a dozen ideas on how to make it better.
+ You’re willing to quickly learn new ways of teaching and are willing to be uncomfortable as you learn new techniques.
+ You are quick to communicate via text and email. Even willing to get on a phone call if needed.
+ You like the idea of learning new software, as well as jumping in and finding the answer independently (aka…you know how to Google something).

Bonus points if…

  • You are trained by Marilyn Zecher in MSM 1 or 2
  • You’ve tutored students in the past
  • You’ve worked online with students
  • You have strong math skills in Algebra 1 and 2
  • You’re funny! We use a lot of humor to defuse anxiety
  • Again, those are just bonuses…not requirements.

Availability

This is a 12 – 20 hour per week position.

We do work with students in all different time zones, but most often you’ll find yourself working with students Monday – Thursday 2:00 pm – 8:00 pm. This time might differ depending on where you’re living.

Team meetings are typically held once a month on Fridays for an hour.

Important note about working: this is not the kind of job where you can have little kids running in/out of your sessions. It will require chunks of 2 – 3 hours of uninterrupted time, so even though it’s remote – this does not mean you can do the work whenever.

You’ll need to wear brightly colored t-shirts and have a kept appearance as students WILL be seeing you. They’ll be able to tell if you just rolled out of bed!

This is a W-2 Position

We’re not looking to hire a contractor unless you already have Marilyn Zecher’s training.

This person will be paid every other week via payroll direct deposit. Made for Math will supply webcams, lights, and any other software needed to do the job.

You’ll be an hourly employee, and compensation will depend on experience.

Please don’t apply unless you live in these states: WA, UT, ID, TX, AZ, SC

Made for Math wants to hire you as a remote, part-time Multisensory Math Substitute.

At Made for Math, we help students with learning differences such as dyslexia, autism, and ADHD learn math with a hands-on experience minus rote memorization and procedures. We’re a team of 14: Adrianne Meldrum (that’s me), 1 educational therapist, 10 multisensory math teachers and admin.

I’m looking to hire a Multisensory Math Substitute as soon as possible to help support Made for Maths’ growing list of students.

First, a little about Made for Math

I’m Adrianne, the founder. Between 2006 and 2015, I tutored math independently where I helped middle and high school students achieve grades they were proud of. At the time, it was great but there were always just a few students that my methods just didn’t reach. I discovered after studying dyslexia that many of those students that didn’t do well with the procedure of math also fit the description of dyslexia. I had a choice to make, either filter out those students or get training so I know how to help.

In 2015, I went all-in on the math and dyslexia tie. The training is slim pickings but I found a wonderful mentor in Marilyn Zecher, creator of the Marilyn Zecher’s Multisensory Math Method. She is a certified language therapist and has spent her career studying math research and applying what she knows about teaching a child to read to math. I fell in love with her method because it worked for those students that were hard to reach.

I decided to expand beyond just myself and began hiring more people to work with me to serve these different learners. Now in 2019, we’ve tripled our student load and we offer classes to homeschool parents. Our goal is to add a grade level of math each year.

Our students are referring their friends, people find us through different pieces of training or webinars we’ve done, and we’re maxed out! We need more people who are willing to learn the multisensory math method so we can continue to serve these students. Let’s find out if you’re a good fit.

The Multisensory Math Substitute position might be for you if…

You’re a research and pedagogy nerd. You really love to read research papers or read education books and happily apply what you’re learning to your students. Sometimes at social functions, you say, “You know what the research says about that?” drawing glazed looks from your friends and family.

This is a Contractor Position

This person will be paid monthly via payroll direct deposit. You will be responsible for your own taxes.

What you’ll be doing…

You’ll be following lesson plans given to you and doing a little lesson planning in preparation for your student

We use three pieces of software primarily: Zoom.us (video conferencing software), Bitpaper (whiteboard software) and BrainingCamp (digital maniupulatives).

After each session, you’ll be doing administrative tasks such as:

+ Sending an email to parents to share what was covered
+ Upload the session recording to our student portal
+ Supporting students with homework problems outside of tutor sessions (using software called Loom)

I will (of course) train you in all aspects of the job. We’ll work closely to make sure you gain confidence and competence in each area of your responsibility.

You should apply for this job if you love to learn. Especially if you are willing to challenge all that you thought to be true about teaching math and embrace that this method does a lot of great things for students.

Multisensory math is appropriate for ALL learners but is essential for some.

How to apply

Amy Anderson

Multisensory Math Specialist

I left the classroom to teach online at Made for Math, and I have never regretted it! At MFM, I feel fully supported and am able to focus my instruction on the needs of my students, rather than the stress of worrying about test scores and long hours grading. The provided training in Multisensory Math techniques has helped me feel confident that I can reach all learners, and the progress my students make is incredible. I love being able to work from home while also being part of a fabulous team, and I plan to continue working here for many years to come!

Heather Brand

I love working at MFM! Even though we work on a digital platform, we still have a very cohesive team, everyone is positive, and the flexibility to set your own hours/schedule is great! 

I am a working mom of two young daughters and Adrianne has been nothing but understanding.

I also love how we continue to learn new and innovative strategies and techniques to implement with our students. MFM is the best!

Brittany Sawyer

Working for Made for Math has been an adventure! Since I’ve been with the company, I have seen it quadruple in size with students, increase its number of math specialists and hire multiple support staff. It’s been so fun to watch it grow and to know that this company is going to be around for a long time.

The best part of this company is they truly care and want to help kids who struggle to learn the “traditional” way in a classroom. The results are not only amazing, but inspiring! The CEO, Adrianne is truly passionate about what she does and she conveys that through her company. She’s patient as a boss and is a great mentor. I have loved the skills I have learned along this journey and I look forward to many more years of growth with this awesome life changing business!

Scheduler & Product Fulfillment

When I left the classroom environment to pursue other opportunities, I knew in my heart that I still loved teaching. MFM gave me the opportunity to still work with students without having to worry about tedious grading, data input and standardized tests. I am grateful to have found the supportive environment and the flexibility that MFM gives me. It warms my heart to be able to work with my students by focusing on their individual needs while also being able to work from home.  I have learned so much about Multisensory Math through MFM and love how this approach sets our students up for success.

I hope you consider being a part of our awesome team!

Tiffany Daugherty

What an opportunity working with Made For Math has been! Since beginning with MFM I have felt growth, fulfillment, and happiness. The provided training has helped me progress as a professional. Our team members share their wealth of knowledge and experience with each other. Although we are scattered across the United States, I feel a closeness to my co-workers that helps me feel supported to be the best teacher I can be. The experiences I get to have with students are the highlight of my work. By focusing on my students one-on-one, I continue to learn so much about how their minds work. While working with MFM has made me grow and stretch to new heights, the reward of my work is manifest in all the experiences I have with my students and fellow staff members.

Erin Evans

Multisensory Math Specialist

I left classroom teaching due to the frustration of whole group instruction not helping every student glow. I understand the value of public education, but my heart needed to help those students that thrive with specialized one-on-one support that school accommodations could not reach. I wandered life aimlessly for three years, testing out multiple jobs, before I looked into Made for Math. I did not join on a whim and researched this company for months. Finally, after a year of back and forth I took the plunge and applied. After interacting with my team members I knew this was where I wanted to be. I had found a team of fellow educators that worked collectively to help students unlock and see their full potential. Even though I work from home I feel connected to and supported by my team, and I still make deep connections with my students. 
If you have a desire to teach beyond the standard box method, come join me and help change a student’s perspective.
Brailee Saunders

Multisensory Math Specialist

MFM is a fun and rewarding workplace! I’ve discovered new ways to think about, explain, and understand math concepts. The team is energetic, supportive, and creative. I joined MFM because I was considering teaching as a career. MFM provided all the training to get me started and I love it so far!

As a student, MFM has helped me deepen my understanding of the math fundamentals, which translate into my college math and science classes. MFM also has wide flexibility, so working with my school schedule is easy to do. I’m grateful that I get to teach and have fun at the same time!
