If you’ve ever had an inkling to teach others, now is the time to get on board. Get Smarter Prep is hiring tutors. We are always looking for great tutors, but we are starting teacher training the beginning of November. If you want flexible hours with great pay, apply online now.
For the most part, we tutor students for the ACT, SAT, graduate exams, and other standardized tests. However, we also work with students on Study Skills and College Counseling. We offer both classroom and private, one-on-one, instruction depending upon the student’s needs. For every class you take on, you’ll be working 2 hrs/wk teaching. This means that your schedule varies depending on the volume of clients we have and on your availability. Some of our teachers have eight hours of availability a week and some have 30 – it will depend on your schedule!
Of course, we want our tutors to also score well on the ACT, so we make sure our candidates score around a 30 composite score before we even consider hiring them. If it’s been a few years since you took an ACT, no problem. We have practice tests available for you to take.
The interview process starts with an audition and interview. For the audition we ask that you prepare a 5-minute lesson on any topic in which you think you’re an expert. Candidates have taught us everything from how to multiply numbers in a less than conventional way to what to do if you encounter a bear in the wild to how to identify a true Wisconsin Cheese Head. Be yourself, as well as demonstrate communication skills that can be extrapolated to a teaching environment! Next, the real fun begins. Training will always begin with the ACT, which lasts 3-4 weeks and consists of a maximum of 10 hours per week. It’s a great time to learn our strategies, practice your teaching, and meet our other tutors!
