Both full- and part-time tutors are being recruited to begin a year of paid service this fall. Minnesota Reading Corps and Minnesota Math Corps are statewide initiatives to help students become a successful reader by the end of third grade, and proficient in math by the end of eighth grade.

Woodbury sites that have been awarded tutor positions are:

• Brookview Elementary

• Gordon Bailey Elementary

Minnesota Reading Corps and Minnesota Math Corps tutors commit to 11 months of service, during which they earn a biweekly living allowance of $597 (full-time) and an education award of up to $5,920 to help pay for further education. Full-time tutors also receive health insurance. Tutors are fully trained by Math Corps and Reading Corps.
