Tutoring position with Abacus!

Abacus is in the process of selecting tutors for a Minneapolis Public Schools partnership education program called "RAMPP" (Reading and Math Partners Program). This seasonal part-time work will occur after school hours, several days per week, in local MPS schools, public libraries, community centers and any other approved locations where small groups of children can meet with their tutors. The children will be in grades kindergarten, 3rd, 6th or 9th. The tutors will help them with reading and math skills in the English language.

Minneapolis Public Schools requires that these tutors have at least 60 college credit hours completed, at least some experience working with children, and have a clean federal background check. Abacus additionally requires that tutors have their own personal transportation and access to a personal computer and Internet. Abacus provides online training and all the materials needed to conduct the tutoring. The pay rate ranges from $15-18 per hour (depending on tutor experience and student grouping). Abacus will pre-screen a large number of applicants in order to be prepared for the release of students from MPS. Once those students are released to Abacus, some or all of the pre-screened tutors will be trained, screened and formally hired, and students will be assigned for service.

Interested candidates must send a resume to or complete and submit the online application at .
