** A Note from Accelerate Northfield
Hello Tutors,

I hope you all had wonderful summers! Now that the school year has started again, it is time to get excited for another year of tutoring! Last year was a great year, but we have even more ambitious goals this year, and we need the help of tutors like you to meet them. Last year, we filled, on average, 55% of teacher requests for help. Let’s work on beating that number this year!

Teachers have already input over 230 requests for tutors and that number will only grow as we get further into the school year.

We need your help to fill all these requests for tutors, so we invite you to tutor with Accelerate Northfield. To get started tutoring, simply fill out and submit this Background Check Form ( . Once you’ve cleared, I’ll email you with more information.

I hope to hear from you soon!

Best Wishes,

Amy Decker
Accelerate Northfield VISTA


** Tips
At the beginning of the school year, it is especially important to begin to build a relationship with your student(s). Take some time at the beginning of each of your tutoring sessions to ask questions and get to know your student(s). Make sure you ask open-ended questions, not questions that will get you a “yes” or “no” answer.

** Activity Ideas
Looking for a good activity to do with your student(s)? Check out the “Tutor Tips” Blog ( at the Minnesota Literacy Council. They have lots of great ideas, so check it out!
