Reading and math tutors needed for 2019-2010 school year

East Side schools need nearly 40 literacy and math tutors for the 2019-2020 school year according to Minnesota Reading Corps and Minnesota Math Corps. Minnesota is reported to have one of the largest achievement gaps in the nation, heightening the need for literacy and math tutors in schools throughout the state.

 Area schools with tutor positions include:

•  Academia Cesar Chavez Charter School (K3);

• Achieve Language Academy (K3/PreK);

• Eastern Heights Elementary (K3/Math);

• Farnsworth Aerospace Lower (K3);

• Heights Community School (K3);

• Highwood Hills Elementary (K3/Math);

• Life Prep (K3/Math/PreK);

• Phalen Lake Hmong Studies Magnet (K3);

• Saint Paul Music Academy (K3);

• Washington Technology Magnet School (Math);

• YMCA St. Paul Eastside Early Childhood Center (PreK).

 Both full- and part-time tutors are being recruited to begin a year of paid service this fall. Tutors are being sought for three different levels of commitment:  35, 25 or 18 hours a week. Tutors receive a stipend every two weeks, and can earn up to an additional $4,200 for student loans or tuition, which can be gifted to a family member if the tutor is 55 or older. Many tutors also qualify for additional benefits like free health insurance and child care assistance. Anyone interested is encouraged to apply now at readingandmath.net or by calling 866-859-2825. Tutors will begin in August 2019, and spend the next school year making the commitment to “Help Minnesota Be More.” Math and literacy tutors are fully trained by Math Corps and Reading Corps.
