FLEX College Prep is seeking dynamic individuals with strong communication skills to teach high school students. Subject includes ACT verbal test prep. 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.

    • Familiarity with standardized tests (AP, SAT II, SAT, ACT, etc.) in your subjects

What you'll do:
