MOORHEAD — Twenty tutors are being sought to serve in Moorhead schools starting in August.

The call for tutors is in response to the educational challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ten reading tutors are needed in Moorhead, along with five math tutors and five early learning tutors.

“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," said Sadie O’Connor, managing director of the Reading Corps, Math Corps and Early Learning Corps.

The groups are recruiting 1,700 tutors throughout Minnesota.

No teaching experience is needed. Reading and math tutors are trained and serve at schools 35, 25 or 18 hours a week.

Tutors get a stipend every two weeks, plus up to $4,500 for college tuition or student loans.

Tutors 55 or older can choose to give their education award to a child, grandchild, stepchild or foster child.

Some tutors qualify for other benefits like free individual health insurance and child care assistance.
