Apply to be a TA/counselor for BEAM Summer Away:


Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics (BEAM), a project of the Art of Problem Solving Initiative, Inc., is seeking undergraduate students or recent graduates to be counselors and teaching assistants for a summer program that gives everyone a chance to excel in mathematics. During summer 2024, we will run two programs: BEAM Discovery and BEAM Summer Away. These programs are foundational to our mission, serving as students first experience with BEAM and the beginning of a 10-year support commitment (Pathway Program) respectively.


What You’ll Do:

At both programs, you'll create a vibrant social experience for kids who are discovering for the first time that there are other people who like doing mathematics. In this role, you'll also be a TA for classes on topics such as number theory, combinatorics, problem solving, and computer science. Courses taught at BEAM are designed by our faculty members and focus on topics in mathematics that they’re passionate about and chosen by students based on what they are interested in. Be a role model and guide for students who are just beginning to set their educational path!


As a Counselor/Teaching Assistant, you will:

  • Supervise students
  • Run social and community activities
  • Build a positive social environment
  • Work with students on mathematics, both one-on-one and as a teaching assistant

At Summer Away, live in the dorms as a student hall leader

At Discovery, help students get to-and-from the program in travel groups 


Who You Are:

Counselors must be strong mathematically, be reliable, and take initiative. They should be charismatic and able to help the kids have fun. All counselors must be at least 18 years old by the beginning of the program. In addition, applicants must be authorized to work for an employer in the US. We are unable to sponsor or take over sponsorship of employment visas at this time. International students able to obtain CPT or OPT are welcome to apply.
