Willmar area schools still in need of tutors for new school year
Tutors are still needed for the coming school year. The tutors would work for education divisions of the federal AmeriCorps program.
Tutors would work with the school through AmeriCorps , a federal program that provides paid positions in education, disaster services and other areas. Tutors are needed in reading, math and early learning through the Reading Corps, Math Corps and Early Learning Corps divisions of AmeriCorps.
In a news release, managing director Sadie O’Connor said tutors are needed more than ever after the challenges schools and students have faced during the pandemic.
No teaching experience is needed, as the program trains tutors. Tutors may be adults of any age. They work in schools for 35, 25 or 18 hours a week and receive a stipend every two weeks.
Tutors may also earn up to $4,500 to go toward college tuition or student loans. Tutors 55 or older may give their education awards to children, grandchildren, stepchildren or foster children.
Tutors may also qualify for additional benefits like individual health insurance and childcare assistance.
