"Minnesota reading corps is really designed to help all of our struggling readers in Minnesota really become proficient in reading by the time that they leave the 3rd grade," Lindsey Molstad says.

Molstad is the program manager for Reading and Math Inc. in Duluth. She also explains that the Minnesota Math corps wants kids proficient in math skills by the time they finish eighth grade. Reading tutors work with kids in Pre-Kindergarten through third grade and Math tutors will work with fourth through eighth grade students.

Many of the work sites like Congdon Park, Homecroft, Laura Macarthur, Myers-Wilkens, and Piedmont are located here in Duluth. However, there are opportunities at schools in Barnum, Ely, Grand Marais, and Moose Lake.

"We're really looking for people that are passionate with their tutoring and working with kids," Molstad says. "They just need to have that passion, that drive to be really committed to an 11-month term of service."

There are full-time and part-time positions available. Those who apply don't need a teaching background and/or an extensive experience in tutoring. Training typically starts in August, but any positions unfilled after can still be taken by people interested. Those who are hired after the August training date will be trained separately.
