FLEX College Prep is seeking dynamic individuals with strong communication skills to teach middle and high school students. Subjects include English, history, standardized test prep (ACT/SAT), enrichment courses in critical thinking and problem solving, essay writing and literature analysis, and many more -- all educational backgrounds are welcome. Since many tutoring assignments are short-term, academic instructors will be hired as temporary employees with a 6-month review for regular part-time employment.  Teaching experience in these subjects is preferred, but for those of you who are new to our industry, training is provided!

What we're looking for:

    • Bachelor's degree from a U.S. Top 50 college or university
    • Strong communication skills to establish rapport with students and co-workers
    • Passion for education
    • Experience teaching or tutoring High School students
    • Availability to work at least some evenings and/or weekends

What we’d love but don’t need:

    • Formal experience and/or training in education
    • Ability to teach multiple subjects (i.e. SAT Verbal and ACT Verbal)
    • Familiarity with standardized tests (AP, SAT II, SAT, ACT, etc.) in your subjects
    • Ability to work at multiple locations

What you’ll do:

    • Academic Instructors assist students individually and in small groups with academic coursework, standardized test prep, and enrichment courses.  They develop and customize lesson plans and curriculum to provide students with targeted, individualized academic support. And they maintain comprehensive reports of sessions to track progress and adapt to students’ needs.  Most importantly, they help students achieve their academic goals while making the experience as positive as possible.

Where you’ll do it:

    • FLEX Los Altos, Cupertino, San Jose, and/or Fremont
    • Most sessions occur in-center.  In-home sessions are only scheduled with prior consent of instructors and are compensated at a higher rate.

What we’re excited to give you:

    • Part Time:
    • Competitive compensation
    • Opportunities for rapid growth and merit-based promotion
    • Paid Sick leave
    • Discounts for FLEX services
    • Getting out of bed can be hard - coffee’s on us!
