Schools Need Math, Reading Tutors
There’s a big need for more tutors to help students learn reading and math this fall. Americorps workers say their Reading Corps and Math Corps programs need tutors aged 18 and up. They need about 50 in the northwest metro to help area school kids. Almost anyone over 18 with a high school diploma can apply. They’ll get a stipend and help paying for college, which they can also transfer to a relative. Some tutors will even be eligible for no-cost health insurance, and childcare is available too.
Tutors serve between 18 and 35 hours per week helping young kids in school learn reading, and also math skills to get them ready for algebra.
“We know that algebra readiness is a real key indicator by 8th grade,” says Americorps’ Chris Erickson. “For real key things like college placement and things beyond just school and college.”
To apply, go to Americorp’s tutoring website, or just call your local school.
