Apply as a tutor

Applications for MBL Balkans 2023 are now closed.

If you are no longer eligible to be a participant, you can apply as a tutor. Becoming a tutor means conducting at least one course during the camp, which consists of 3 classes, each 80 minutes long. There are two blocks of sessions arranged: 26-28.03 and 30.03-01.03. There are always three classes at the same time, so usually 10-20 campers come to each of them. In the afternoons students have some special time intended for asking lecturers questions regarding classes, called time academic unscheduled or TAU for short. 

To get some feeling about the average difficulty of courses we strongly recommend to go through Maths Beyond Limits’ past camp brochures. Remember that campers are high-school students and although many of them have broad olympic background, most of them are not fluent in calculus, linear algebra, group theory, etc. Therefore, if you plan to extensively use some methods/concepts from these areas, remember about reserving some time to introduce them.

Apart from lecturing, you are welcome to join the participants in Evening Activities and Special Events as well as to attend other lectures — in short, do what all the other people will be doing. We may occasionally ask you for help with some special mathematical events, but that will not be too much of a burden. We are not yet sure whether we will be able to offer you money for your work, but your stay, as well as meals, are covered by and we will be able to compensate for your travel expenses, if not in their entirety, at least mostly.

For the purposes of getting to know you better in-person, someone from the organizing committee is going to have have a short (about 20 minutes long) interview with you. In the interview matters such as mathematical background, past teaching experience, courses proposals, secondary preferences will be discussed. The date of the interview will be arranged  subsequently. Application deadline is 1st February.

In the application, please send us (in an email to something about yourself and your mathematical background, description(s) of the course(s) you would like to run and your preferred dates of stay.
