ROCHESTER, Minn. - This week is Math Week, proclaimed by Governor Tim Walz, as well as Americorps week. Minnesota Math Corps and Reading Corps are a part of the service program.

On Thursday, Math Corps tutor Ginny Amundson trained Mayor Kim Norton to be a tutor-for-the-day. They worked with two students together at Riverside Elementary School.

"The students I work with are just below proficiency, so these are the students who a lot of times don't get special help but they still have needs," explains Amundson.

According to Minnesota Math Corps, 40% of Minnesota 8th graders are below grade level proficiency in math.
