Rocklin's Tutoring Team is hiring for a calculus tutor who is experienced with common core math middle school and high school. We need physics and/or chemistry included in your skills. And when it comes to common core, the new Integrated math 3 is a must (it might be called something different in other school districts, but it is common core junior year high school usually. Also, you would teach the math section of the SAT the ACT. No high school student candidates please; you must be in college or already graduated. Availability is Mondays through Friday 3:00 - 8:00, but you do not need to be available all those hours. I am flexible, and we will have a conversation about the schedule that works for both of us, even if you can only do a couple days a week, that's fine too.

There will not be any at home prep. It's mostly homework help with a little bit of program creation, but we have all the materials accessible here, so it's not difficult. Students come to us with reserved times, and I keep the ratio to 3:1 or less. You must know your subject well without need of training and be capable to think on your feet because homework help means you never know what's coming. But if you know your subject, that is not a problem.

Some chemistry concepts you should be very familiar with are:

Redox Reactions

Acid/Base neutralizations

Physical versus chemical reactions

Balancing equations

Quantum numbers (very simplistic)

Ideal Gas Law

The pay is $15-$18 an hour, depending on tutoring experience. Please live nearby, (Rocklin, Roseville, etc) so getting here on time in traffic is not an issue. Sacramento could be too far, unless you leave early.

 

This is a chill and friendly and supportive environment for the students and tutors alike. You will have fun here, but students need to also show progress.

Please email me with your resume and cover letter describing yourself and ALL THE SUBJECTS you can teach. Being able to teach any other subjects is a plus.

I look forward to hearing from all friendly and enthusiastic applicants!
