Experience life-changing growth while supporting your local school. Become a Minnesota Reading Corps or Minnesota Math Corps tutor and be a hero to students who struggle with reading or math.
Whether you want to explore a career in education, re-enter the workforce, or give back to your community, you can make a difference as a tutor.
Last year, Minnesota Reading Corps and Minnesota Math Corps tutors helped more than 35,000 children in more than 900 schools across the state.
Schools needing tutors
In Brooklyn Park, tutors are needed at these schools for the 2016-17 school year:
Birch Grove School for the Arts
Fair Oaks Elementary
Minnesota Early Learning Academy
Palmer Lake Elementary
Prairie Seeds Academy
As a tutor, you'll see a student's progress as they gain new skills and as they light up with confidence and the satisfaction of knowing they can do it. No child wants to stand out because they can’t learn as quickly as their classmates. We’re helping more kids catch up and soar on their own. And you can be part of it.
Training, support and pay
Tutors receive extensive training and support from onsite coaches. Tutors are paid a living allowance, given federal student loan forbearance, and are eligible for an education award of up to $5,775 at the end of their service. Tutors 55 or older may gift the award to their child or grandchild. Full- and part-time positions are available.
Here’s what a few tutors love about serving:
“I give the children in our community the individualized attention they need to thrive in school. This is awesome work that makes Minnesota mighty!” – Sarah W., children’s book author and PreK teacher
“I absolutely love what I do! I get to come to school each day and see the kiddos I work with succeed.” – Andrea M., stay-at-home parent
