More about the job:

  • Under the direction of a Lead Teacher, you will provide math tutoring to one or two students in Grade 6 to 8.
  • The tutoring begins with a unit on Fractions, then moves on to an online workbook at the student’s grade level.
  • All tutoring is arranged and provided online, through software such as Skype and Scribblar. It is expected that you will work from home.
  • You do not need to be a math whiz! A significant piece of this program is teaching students what to do when you don’t know how to answer a question. We provide extensive training to help you with every aspect of the program.
