    I have been working at Minnesota Reading Corps full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The training and support from MN Reading Corps is the best I have ever experienced. The program staff and coaches are available to answer any question and collaborate with you to solve any problem. The training and associated printed/digital materials are extensive and easy to navigate. This is truly one of the most caring and inclusive organizations that I have worked for.

    Cons

    This is a service position...any 'cons' are outweighed by the rewards of service. There is nothing better than seeing students grow and succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep striving for added benefits for tutors in greater MN!

    Literacy Tutor Interview

    Positive Experience
    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.
