From our Tutors

  • I’ve seen the success in so many ways for the students because they’ve overcome their stumbling blocks. They are just ecstatic when they exit the program. Reading isn’t holding them back anymore.

    Patricia Gurney — Little Canada Elementary, Roseville School District
  • Quality, research-based and produces results — Minnesota Reading Corps is helping our children thrive in this rapidly changing world.  

    Les Fujitake, superintendent — Bloomington Public Schools
  • My time with Minnesota Reading Corps has equipped me with the tools, skills, strategies and insight to make leaps and bounds in my quality as an educator and supportive adult. I don't think I've ever felt so consistently fulfilled.
