District 742 is looking for people interested in Reading Corps and Math Corps for the 2015-2016 school year. 

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. 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.  To apply or learn more about the research based programs, position qualifications, and benefits, visit MinnesotaReadingCorps.org or MinnesotaMathCorps.org.
