Tutoring Jobs

We are always looking for great people to join our team.

Who We Want

We’re a very diverse group – we sometimes refer to our team as “the island of misfit toys.” Here’s what we all have in common:

  • We care. Our mission, to create educational opportunities for students and value for families, molds what we do. We focus on efficiency – anything that doesn’t further our mission doesn’t matter.
  • We develop. Expertise isn’t static. We’re constantly learning, evolving, and seeking to better meet the needs of our students even as the ACT and SAT change over time.
  • We love people. We’re in the service industry, and our greatest responsibility is to the people with whom we interact. We build relationships with families, create great experiences for students, and take care of each other.
  • We focus on results. Nothing matters unless we can provide our students with results.

We live across North DFW (Addison, Allen, Argyle, Carrollton, Coppell, The Colony, Dallas, Denton, Flower Mound, Frisco, Grapevine, Highland Village, Irving, Lake Dallas, Lewisville, Little Elm, Plano, Richardson, Southlake, etc.)

Some of us have graduated from highly selective universities, some have pursued passions at less competitive universities (like our founder, who studied Music Education at the University of North Texas).

We’ve all scored in the top percentiles of the ACT and/or SAT and have tutored, mentored, or taught students one-on-one before work at MJ Prep.

We all have high E.Q. (Emotional Intelligence Quotient). We’re charismatic, professional, and teachable.

What We Offer

  1. Stable Stream of Students
    You don’t have to post on Craigslist or tutor listing sites any more. We’ll provide you with students in your area who fit your teaching style.
  2. Freedom and Flexibility
    You can work 6-24 hours a week (typically 3-12 students) depending on your availability, which you have complete control over. We have a comprehensive scheduling system that allows you to set your own schedule.
  3. Support
    Our directors are available nearly 24 hours a day to support our tutors.
    As well, we have weekly “office hours” available to ask educational questions, propose new ideas, or just chat!
  4. Use Your Skills
    None of our tutors have degrees in “ACT/SAT tutoring” – we have backgrounds in education, business, marketing, writing, music, arts, IT, etc. As a growing, evolving company, we LOVE using our tutors’ skills to foster that growth and development.
  5. Industry-Leading Compensation
    Our tutors are the faces of our company and the drivers of our success, and we want the best. Tutoring pay starts at $40/hr, and we have scheduled raises and opportunities for bonuses. We pay for training, admin time, curriculum development, and side projects. Don’t have a laptop to use? We’ll give you one.
