Minnesota Math and Reading Corps Tutors Wanted for Northeast Range!

 Position title: Literacy Tutor and Math Tutor – Minnesota Reading Corps and Minnesota Math Corps

Would you love to help children grow their reading or math skills, succeed in school and get extra support? If your answer is yes, you can be trained to serve as a tutor with Minnesota Reading Corps or Minnesota Math Corps at Northeast Range. Whether you want to explore an educational career, reenter the workforce, or give back to your community, you can succeed as a tutor. Last year, Minnesota Reading Corps and Minnesota Math Corps provided direct services to over 35,000 children in more than 700 schools across the state.

As a Literacy Tutor, you’ll use strategies that help students believe in themselves and succeed. Positions available include: Preschool, Kindergarten Focus, and Elementary (K-3) Literacy Tutors. As a Math Tutor, you’ll help struggling 4th-8th grade students prepare for Algebra.   We offer part time and full time options, and tutors typically serve most of their hours during the regular school day.

In addition to extensive training, tutors will receive on-site support from specially trained school mentors. Tutors come from many backgrounds and include recent high school and college grads, career changers, stay-at-home parents, and retirees. Tutors may earn a living allowance, educational award, federal student loan forbearance, and other benefits, and have the chance to make a real difference in the life of a child.

Elementary Flex Wednesday Fun

K flex

For several months the elementary teachers have teamed up to create a fun, hands-on learning experience called “Flex Wednesday.” This flex time allows students to focus on all of the strands of mathematics: numbers and operation, algebra, statistics and probability, and data analysis. The students are able to work with different students and teachers that they may not get to work with during the regular school day.

This opportunity allows students to expand their learning and strengthen math knowledge, while allowing students to improve their communication and problem-solving skills as well.
