We are hiring Spanish tutors for the 2018-2019 school year!
We have two Spanish tutor positions available: part-time 12-18 hrs/wk and full-time 24-32 hrs/wk. Both positions require availability on some combination of shifts Monday through Thursday, 3:30-10:00 pm and Sunday, 10:00 am-9:00 pm during the school year. During the summer, when training will begin, both positions require availability on some combination of shifts Monday through Thursday, 11:00 am-7:30 pm.
If you enjoy not only speaking Spanish but also working with students, we want to meet you! At BATC, we believe a tutor's academic expertise is just as important as his or her ability to effectively convey the subject matter to students of all levels and backgrounds. We are seeking personable, focused and enthusiastic individuals to tutor all levels of Spanish at our center in San Ramon. Many of our Spanish students come for help with reading, writing and grammar assignments from their Spanish classes at school, and some come for SAT II or AP test preparation. If you lack transportation, don't worry! A company carpool is available for those who live in the Berkeley area and commute to San Ramon.
Working at BATC
Tutors must be able to take initiative and work independently. At the same time, we expect tutors to collaborate with each other in order to develop and/or expand curricula. Spanish tutors must be able to teach all levels of Spanish through AP. In addition, tutors must have a thorough knowledge of Spanish grammar, vocabulary and idiom, as well as the ability to write and correct essays in Spanish. Prior tutoring experience is preferred and a bachelor's degree (or ongoing study towards a degree) is required. All candidates will be given an assessment test in their subject prior to interviewing.
How to Apply
Email your cover letter (including availability and number of hours desired), resume and unofficial transcripts. All documents are required and incomplete applications will not be considered. We are only hiring tutors who are able to commit to working with us at least through the 2018-2019 school year (June 2019). Please be sure you are available during our school year business hours before applying.
The Bay Area Tutoring Centers, Inc. is a private tutoring center that welcomes students of all academic backgrounds and grade levels. We offer individualized tutoring in math, science, English, language arts, history, Spanish, and standardized test preparation. Our tutors don’t just provide answers; they teach each concept as a stepping-stone to the next and challenge students to reflect on their answers to discover new approaches. Many students benefit from ongoing weekly sessions, but others prefer scheduling sessions on an “as-needed” basis. We do not have contracts or session minimums, and there are no registration fees. Programs are available throughout the school year as well as over the summer.
