SAP is hiring Reading Corps tutors!

  • St. Anthony Park is hiring Reading Corps tutors for the 2018-2019 school year! Tutors will be trained to work with students in grades K-3 on literacy skills to get all students reading at grade level.   They will implement proven research-based strategies, monitor progress, and help children believe in themselves and succeed- all while building their own skills and professional network.  Reading Corps is an AmeriCorps program, and as such tutors will receive extensive training, support, and general professional development opportunities. This is a good fit for those who are interested in exploring a career in education, want to dedicate a year of service to their community, or would like to re-enter the workforce while working within the parameters of their children's school schedules.  We are hiring two positions- one part time and one full time.  Both positions run from mid-August through the end of the school year, require tutors to be able to work every day M-F, and follow the Saint Paul Schools calendar.  If tutors are 55 years or older, their education award can be gifted to a child, grandchild, or foster child.  

    Full Time (35 hours/week)

    • Tutors will need to complete 1200 hours of service
    • Tutors will receive a living allowance of $425 every other week
    • At the end of their term, tutors will receive an education award of $4138 that can be used for existing or future college expenses 
    • Tutors are eligible for healthcare benefits and childcare subsidies

    Part Time (25 hours/week)

    • Tutors will need to complete 1200 hours of service
    • Tutors will receive a living allowance of $425 every other week
    • At the end of their term, tutors will receive an education award of $4138 that can be used for existing or future college expenses

    Interested in spending time at SAP as a volunteer tutor?  We are looking for family, friends, and community members who would like to work with K-5 students on reading, writing, or math.  Tutors will work with students individually or with small groups, and must be willing to spend at least 45 minutes per week at school.  Tutors will be partnered with a classroom teacher, who will put together activities for them to do with students.  No experience is necessary, just a heart for young people and for learning is required!  If you have any specialized skills (especially language skills!) we would love to put those to use as well.  Contact Becky Kallhoff at Rebecca.Kallhoff@spps.org for more info.
