A Winning Equation

Achievement in early math is a great predictor of future academic and economic success. In fact, 90% of sixth graders who fail math will not graduate from high school.

Right now, more than 26,000 Minnesota eighth graders are failing state math exams. By applying a proven model for student success, Minnesota Math Corps is changing outcomes for fourth through eighth graders who are struggling in math. Tutors are trained to provide individualized, research-based instruction to help students gain foundational math skills.

Essential qualifications to serve with Minnesota Math Corps:

  • Strong interest in education, specifically in helping students develop their math skills.

  • Dedication to community service

  • Basic computer skills, including the ability to navigate online systems and email

  • 18 years of age or older (no upper age limit!) and have a high school diploma or GED

  • Citizen, national or lawful permanent resident of the United States

  • Ability to speak, read, and write English fluently

Members like serving in this program because they:

  • See students' faces light up when they finally “get it” and understand a math concept

  • Help students become confident in their math abilities and themselves

  • Gain experience working in an elementary school and/or junior high school setting

  • Have the chance to really make a difference in the life of a child

Minnesota Math Corps is a strategic initiative of ServeMinnesota.
