Be The Difference - Reading Tutors needed

Northland Community Schools is looking for 2 reading tutors for the 2021-22 school year. In Minnesota, nearly half our students aren’t reading at grade level, and large disparities exist for students of color and American Indian students. You can make a difference by giving your time and talent to help students become successful readers and learners.

Tutors work one-on-one or in small groups with students during school hours throughout the school year. No matter if you’re a recent grad, career changer, stay-at-home parent or retiree, you can make a great tutor. No experience? No problem. Tutors receive great training, so they are well equipped to help students grow. Part-time and full-time positions are available. Tutors commit to serving 35, 25, or 18 hours a week throughout the school year. Opportunities begin in December 2021.

Perks as a Tutor

  • Build your skills, network, and resume
  • Receive a stipend every two weeks
  • Earn up to $3,172 for college tuition or student loans. (Tutors 55 and older may gift the award to their child, grandchild, stepchild or foster child.)
  • Free health insurance and childcare assistance for those who qualify
