    Literacy Tutor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Minnesota Reading Corps (Minneapolis, MN) in September 2014.

    Interview

    First I applied online. Then I had a phone interview where they asked pretty basic questions about who you are, your values, and why you want to spend a year of your life volunteering. Most of the questions were on the online application, so I had already prepared answers for them. I think I had a second interview where I had to read a passage aloud.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me about why I considered community service to be important to me.   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Minnesota Reading Corps (Minneapolis, MN) in August 2014.

    Interview

    The online application seeks to weed out any poor applicants. If you pass this, you will receive a phone interview, then a face to face interview at the school where you're placed. Oh, and you'll also take a literacy screening test whilst on the phone to ensure you're fit to teach others to read.

    There was no negotiation. The stipen was set, the hours needed to complete the job was already set.

    Literacy Tutor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Minnesota Reading Corps (Minneapolis, MN) in June 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online, and then had an in-person interview for my first year, which included talking about reading, children and my experiences with both. Once I was selected by Reading Corps to be a tutor I was then interviewed by a school I wanted to work at. Because I was only willing to work at one school (where my children attend) it was a simple process. I know other members have had the chance to interview at different schools and choose where they work. Brief phone interviews were conducted each subsequent year.

    Interview Questions

    • What place does reading have in my life?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Just where I would work. This is a situation where there are schools clamoring for qualified tutors- you get to choose your location! No other component is negotiable.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Minnesota Reading Corps (Minneapolis, MN) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Americorps contacted me on the phone to discuss whether I was available for a year of service, if I would be ok with the living stipend, and my basic background. Then I interviewed with a group and we were asked to discuss why we wanted to be tutors and what we thought of the achievement gap in Minnesota. It was not too hard to come up with things to say. Once I passed that round, I interviewed with the principal in the school district I wanted, and the questions were about my experience and skill level.
