Boutique tutoring company is seeking reliable, educated, and engaging tutors to work with high school students in South Bay, Culver City, West LA and Mid City LA.
Must have solid skills in high school math (Geometry, Algebra 1 & 2, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Statistics) and/or science (Chemistry, Physics, Biology) and/or SAT/ACT test prep - the more of these the better. Prior tutoring experience is a strong plus (can be volunteer).
If you are comfortable with Physics, Chemistry and/or Calculus at the AP level, or have other academic areas in which you are strong, please highlight that in your cover letter. Science and math are the most in-demand subjects at the current time.
We also get some requests for "study skills" support for students, particularly in middle school and early high school.
During the intense period of COVID, our tutors went to total virtual tutoring, and some are still exclusively doing that. There is, however, an increasing demand for in-person (in-home or in a library) tutoring where all parties are fully vaccinate, usually in South Bay or in the other areas listed above. Hours are flexible and are negotiated by tutor and student, but are primarily mid/late afternoon and evening Monday through Thursday, and on weekends. Tutors can take as many/few students as their schedule allows.
Qualifications: knowledge of math and/or science and/or English- comfortable working with high school students - good communication skills. BA/BS degree minimum - graduate level work or prior teaching/tutoring experience is a plus. All tutors must have at least a 3.0 cumulative college GPA and all Test Prep tutors must have scored a minimum of 1300 (pre-2005 or post-2015)- 1900 (2005 - 2015) on the SAT and/or 28 on the ACT.
Please let us know if you are fluent in a language in addition to English.
You will need a reliable vehicle (for in-person tutoring), cell phone and Internet access. Please specify if you are willing to do in-person tutoring- if so, you must be willing to travel to meet your students, so proximity to the geographical areas mentioned above is important.
Starting salary is $20 - $37/hour (remote)- $32 - $56/hour (in-person), with the opportunity to advance quickly, both in hourly rate and in other capacities within the company.
Please direct resume/credentials and references to Paul or Linda. Be sure to mention subject areas in which you are equipped to tutor.
We do check references, and may require a background check.
