Accelerating Scholars Tutors

Alongside MNPS, PENCIL is recruiting community members to volunteer as tutors to support students who need extra help in elementary reading or middle and high school math through the MNPS Accelerating Scholars program. Using a high-impact, research-based model, volunteers accelerate learning, and ensure that each student is known, supported, and academically on-track.  

Tutors are not required to have previous teaching experience.

 Volunteers will:

  1. Complete a background check, provided by PENCIL at no cost to the volunteer 
  2. Receive training on all tutoring session plans and materials 
  3. Be matched with a student(s), based on the volunteer’s availability 
  4. Provide support in three, 30-minute-long virtual or in-person tutoring sessions every week for 10-weeks
