Position Summary:

Do you love to help children and have interest in helping to grow their reading skills and succeed in school? If your answer is yes, consider joining the largest AmeriCorps tutoring program in the country and make a difference in the lives of Kindergarten through third grade aged students! We’ll provide training so no prior tutoring, formal education experience, or experience with children is necessary. In addition to extensive training, tutors will receive on-site support from trained school literacy coaches. Tutors come from many backgrounds and include recent high school and college grads, career changers, stay-at-home parents, and retirees. Positions are filling fast so apply today!

Duties or Responsibilities:

  • Work with pairs of students (fourth through eighth grade) who need extra support with math during the school day. Tutors are trained to use a variety of scripted Minnesota Math Corps strategies, called interventions, to build students’ foundational math skills in numbers and operations. Tutors work with the same student pairs for a total of 90 minutes each week.
  • Conduct quick and easy math assessments regularly, and enter the student data into an online data system. Tutors review student data with their internal coach (site-based math specialist) to monitor the progress of each student and modify their intervention strategy to
  • meet each student’s needs.
  • Maintain confidentiality of all student data.
  • Attend three days of mandatory training prior to service with students and additional required training sessions throughout the year. Tutors receive the consistent support of a coach at their school. Some travel may be necessary to attend training.
  • Participate in school-sponsored activities such as book fairs and family nights.
  • While the majority of service hours are completed onsite during school hours, most tutors engage in additional community service, which may take place during evening and weekend hours.

QUALIFICATIONS

  • Ability to speak, read, and write English fluently
  • Age 18 or older by the program start date
  • Possess a high school diploma or a GED by the program start date

Please note:

Applicants who have received deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA) through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security are not eligible to serve as AmeriCorps members at this time.

Tutors are paid a modest living allowance every two weeks during their service term and receive an education award upon successful completion which may be used to pay qualified student loans or tuition. Tutors over age 55 may choose to gift their education award to their child or grandchild. Tutors may be eligible for health insurance, child care assistance, and student loan forbearance during their service.
