Crosslake Needs 8 Reading, Math, and Early Tutors to Serve in Area School

Web posted June 28, 2022
In response to the unprecedented educational challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, three reading, four math and one early learning tutors are being sought to begin serving in Crosslake schools in August. Overall, Reading Corps, Math Corps and Early Learning Corps are recruiting 1,700 tutors throughout Minnesota.

Reading Corps, Math Corps and Early Learning Corps Managing Director Sadie O’Connor said, “After approximately two years of disruptions, more students than ever need a proven solution like Reading Corps and Math Corps to help get back on track.”

O’Connor said no teaching experience is needed. Reading Corps and Math Corps tutors are fully trained and serve on-site at the school 35, 25 or 18 hours a week. All tutors receive a stipend every two weeks, plus up to $4,500 to pay for college tuition or student loans. Those who are 55 or older may choose to gift their education award to their child, grandchild, stepchild or foster child. Many tutors also qualify for additional benefits like free individual health insurance and childcare assistance. Candidates are encouraged to apply now to begin helping students in August.
