Our tutors are expected to commit to at least one tutoring session per week.  Tutors will work with the same student at the same time and day each week.  As tutoring sessions are one hour long, tutors should plan on a two hour commitment each week to include prep and reporting time.

A four month commitment is required to serve as a tutor.

Please refer to the Tutor Position Description for more detail.

    I could not open the Application Form document.

    I am qualified to assist with reading, ESL, and writing. I have an MA in ESL and many year of teaching reading and writing at the college level and elementary levels. I have a K-12 teaching license from the State of California.

    My best match might be with a high school and upper elementary student where lies the bulk of my teaching experience (older students). I’d work best with a highly motivated student.

    I think that I can arrange for a Tuesday or Wednesday. I have a heavy schedule, nonetheless, I like for this to work to be of assistance.

    My teaching experience has been in secondary grades in physical sciences, most recently in earth science and geography. I have also taught some English and the mathematics that one has to teach when you are teaching science subjects.
    I taught a total of eight years in Malawi, Africa, two years in a secondary school, as a Peace Corps volunteer and six years as an independent instructor at a post secondary technical school, teaching physical sciences.
    I also taught various science subjects ( junior and senior high ) for six yrs at the American School of Madrid, Spain.
    For seven years I taught Fortran-based software to adults for a computer company ( Cray Research ) in Mendota Heights, MN .
    Most recently, for nine years I taught senior high students at the Metropolitan Learning Alliance, located at the Mall of America. Subjects: mainly Environmental and Earth Science, but
    also Geography, Astronomy , and some English.

    As the new tutor coordinator, I’d like to welcome you as well as Paul, Gjerry, and Herbert to the site! I’m sorry that you had problems with the tutor application. I’ve re-attached the application as of September, and I hope the link works now. If there’s anything else I can do, let me know at or 651.789.2532. Thanks!, Ellen
