Tutoring in the Bard Prison Initiative


The Bard Prison Initiative (BPI) is in need of volunteers to serve as tutors for our math students.  Tutors would commit to traveling to the facility on a weekly basis for the semester.  It is generally a four hour commitment, factoring in travel time and the two hour session, as well as going through the application and clearance process of the Department of Correctional Services.  Past volunteers would certainly attest that it proves to be a deeply rewarding and enriching experience.  Please let us know if you are interested in learning more.

If you are interested in being a BPI tutor, please send email to Ryan McCann (mccann@bard.edu).

In the email please list:
  1. Your name
  2. your year and major
  3. A list of math courses taken
  4. 2 math (or physics or CS) faculty members that you have taken a class with at Bard
  5. Any previous tutoring experience
