Your teen isn't stupid, but poor study skills might make them feel that way...

Would you like to help your child achieve their goals and build a strong foundation for a bright future?

Part-Time Tutor


What you need to be a Part-Time Tutor: 

 A passion for creating a positive difference in the lives of students

 Clear communication skills

 Math proficiency through trigonometry

 A growth mindset (Not sure what that is?  Check here.)

 Ability to pass a background check

 Proper U.S. work authorization

 Great interpersonal skills, motivation, and creativity

 Bachelor's Degree or equivalent tutoring experience

You get extra credit if: 

 You are already certified with the National Tutoring Association

 You've ever used "Tapping", Brain Gym, or other motivational/mindset techniques

 You've taken the SAT and/or ACT in the last three years (and scored in the 95th percentile or better)

 You have prior tutoring experience

 You've worked with students with learning differences such as ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, dyscalculia

What you will be doing: 

 Working individually with students to help prepare them for academic success in subjects such as:

Earth Science
Global History
U.S. History
Foreign Language 

*We have the greatest need for tutors who can help with SAT/ACT prep and mathematics at the high school level.

 No need to travel to student homes - our students come to our office for their sessions.

This is a permanent position. Families who sign up with Tutoring Up-Grades do so for the long term, and we commit to working with students through the end of the school year and during the summer.

Tutoring Up-Grades is an equal opportunity employer.

At Tutoring Up-Grades, we value our employees for their diverse backgrounds and abilities, not just for degrees and past employment or buzzwords on their resumes. We believe that our success in helping students is wholly dependent on hiring and keeping enthusiastic, collaborative learners...people who are willing to fail and learn from the experience.


We believe in supporting you, the tutor, just as much as we support our students. Tutoring Up-Grades offers you:

An interesting, engaging, and supportive environment where everyone on the team is passionate about helping every individual student. 

Competitive Compensation: You'll be an employee, which means you don't have to pay self-employment taxes.  You'll get a paycheck, directly deposited to your bank account every other week.

Retirement plan match, because maybe someday you are going to want to stop tutoring (or at least tutor a little less).

Paid time off: We believe you should have the opportunity to enjoy time away from work to help balance your life. 

Company-Paid Training and Certification: Learning is a way of being at Tutoring Up-Grades, and we support you in continuing to learn more and grow your skills. 

Flexible hours



If you are interested in being part of a unique tutoring company where it's all about nurturing and inspiring individuals, follow these steps:

1) Send your resume and cover letter to info@tutoringupgrades.com.
 In your cover letter tell us, in fewer than 300 words, how your background and passion relate to what we're doing at Tutoring Up-Grades. 

2) Go to: www.tutoringupgrades.com/preinterviewquestions.html 
and fill out our pre-interview questionnaire. 

Once you have completed both steps, we promise to

acknowledge your inquiry with a personal response,
because we have no robots working for us.
