Why it Works
Minnesota Reading Corps trains tutors using the science of how children learn to read — and then puts them to work on boosting literacy skills. It’s a nearly impossible for teachers to deliver individualized instruction to every student. But because that’s all Reading Corps tutors do, they can personalize their approach and focus on what each student needs.
Our tutors work one-on-one and in small groups with readers from age 3 through grade 3, using evidence-based literacy interventions created by experts. The result: Struggling readers make incredible gains that are evident on assessments. (Another wonderful result: many of our talented tutors go on to become teachers themselves!)
