math corps tutor with studentsMinnesota Reading Corps and Minnesota Math Corps are currently seeking more than 20 individuals to serve as tutors in Osseo Area Schools during the 2017-2018 school year.

Reading Corps and Math Corps tutors commit to serving every school day during school hours. In return, they receive a modest living allowance, health insurance, help with childcare costs, an educational scholarship, and other benefits. Tutors receive extensive training, as well as support from onsite coaches.

“People from all demographics and walks of life make excellent tutors,” said Christine Fankhanel, senior program director at ServeMinnesota. “That includes recent graduates, retirees, people considering a career change, stay-at-home parents, or anyone wanting to contribute to their community and area school.”

Tutors must be age 18 or older with a high school diploma or equivalent. Those interested in serving as tutors can view and apply for open positions at
