The Position: ACT/SAT Tutor & School Programs Teacher (Part-Time)
Academic Approach began with a focused mission: to mentor students while building their key academic skills. Join our team of dedicated educators to deliver rewarding, highly personalized, high-impact 1-on-1 and classroom course instruction.
While many of our 1-on-1 tutoring students and school partners prefer to work virtually, priority will be given to candidates who are willing to tutor in-person at our Lincoln Park and/or Winnetka offices and/or teach in-person on the campuses of our partner schools . Academic Approach requires proof of vaccination from all employees who work in-person with our students, partners, and/or other employees.

Applicants of diverse backgrounds, skillsets, and experiences are especially encouraged to apply.
Paid trainings will be run periodically from September, 2022-January, 2023
NOTE: Please also note that--due to the nature of this tutor/instructor position-- all candidates will need to complete a content quiz that includes English and math questions prior to being considered for an interview. This (untimed) quiz should take approximately 45 mins to complete.
