MINNEAPOLIS -- Minneapolis and St. Paul have an immediate need for more than 200 literacy and math tutors for the 2014-2015 school year.

the Minnesota Reading Corps and Minnesota Math Corps are seeking both full and part time tutors to begin a year of paid service almost immediately.

"Studies show that reading success by third grade and math success by eighth grade are key indicators for further academic achievement," said Executive Director Sheila Piippo.

Tutor candidates come from a variety of backgrounds, ranging from high school graduates to retirees, and will be fully trained by the Reading and Math Corps.
