Do the work that changes students lives.

MFM Bar Squiggle Yellow

MFM is not your typical learning center. We use multisensory math to help students with dyslexia, ADHD, or autism finally “get” math!

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.

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.

+ 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.

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 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

Please send an email to adrianne.meldrum@madeformath.com and include “Math (Techie + Creative + Fun)²” in the subject line.

Write a short note that helps me get to know you and why you’re a good fit for this position.  Include your resume as well.

(HINT: When you write your note, please remember that I’m human, not an HR department or piece of software. No one on my team refers to me as “madam” or “Mrs. Meldrum” or heaven forbid to “whom it may concern.”)

Please make a YouTube video telling us about you, why you want to work at Math for Middles and SELL us on why you’re awesome. Show us your skills by doing a short lesson on how to combine like terms using the CRA method.

If you don’t know what that is, please do a search on our website to learn more and apply what you’ve learned. We won’t respond to anyone who doesn’t post a YouTube video. (You can make the video “Unlisted” so only we know about it, but please don’t make it “Private” or we won’t be able to see it.) *

Your ability to follow these directions above are KEY to getting an interview with us.

Hiring timeline

I’d like to fill the position as soon as possible, but I’m not in a rush.

When you apply, I’ll acknowledge your application within 48 hours. If you don’t hear from me, wait 24 more hours and then send it again.

Thanks in advance for applying!

By the way, if you have a friend or family member you think would be a good fit for the job, please share this post!

If you don’t live in those states and are still interested then please reach out via email with details. 

What you’ll be doing…

As a multisensory math teacher, you’ll first start out with training virtually with me, using Marilyn Zecher’s method. The training can take about 2 months which will involve you attending other tutors’ sessions and running part of a session.

Once I determine if you’re ready, you’ll start to receive new students.

You’ll be lesson planning using a prescribed lesson plan format for your new students. Writing lesson plans is more time-consuming in the beginning but does lessen over time.

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

What’s it like to work for MFM?

Working at MFM is exciting, fulfilling, and rewarding. I feel incredibly honored to be part of a growing community of educators truly making a difference in students’ lives.

I enjoy the creativity, flexibility, and importance of my career. As an employee, I am treated with respect and trusted to make decisions that will benefit students. My co-workers and supervisor are supportive, think outside of the box, and push me to strive for more. Don’t hesitate 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

Multisensory Math Specialist

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. The training I received was top-notch, and Adrianne’s attention to detail made the whole training process a breeze. 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

Multisensory Math Specialist

I truly enjoy my time working with MFM. I have always worked with students who have learning differences but before working at MFM, I focused on preschool and early intervention.

As I’ve become a mom and now have young adults and teens, I have really come to enjoy getting to know and work with tweens and teens. We have such fun relationships! I like knowing the work I do matters and is making a difference in the individual and family.

MFM gives me so much flexibility. I’m a mom and able to choose my own hours. Working from home is the icing on the cake! 

Working together in a team allows me to focus my talents and efforts on my students without all the stress of a traditional teaching job with a designated curriculum, lots of paperwork, and stress.

MFM is a rare find!

Ruth Bakken

Multisensory Math Specialist & Assessor

MFM is an exciting, passionate company with a purpose. I love working with them! Their number one priority is helping students but not at the cost and well being of their employees. I feel listened to and supported. I highly recommend working for MFM.

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!
