Math Instructor - Become more than a tutor! Mathnasium of Granger



We are a group of instructors at Mathnasium of Granger who are making a real difference in students' lives. Unlike other learning centers and tutoring services, our entire teaching philosophy revolves around teaching math in a way that makes sense to students. We find where a student is in terms of their math abilities, and build them up from there.

We are a growing organization and are looking for instructors to join our team. We teach in a study hall-type environment with students of all ages, but most of our students are in the 2nd-12th grade range. Therefore, we are looking for future instructors who have solid math skills AND strong communication skills. We help our students solve their own problems, instead of just telling them what to do.

We serve our students year-round, so this is an opportunity for regular part-time work. You must be available at least 3 days out of the 5 days that we are open. There is no need to schedule your own students as they will come during our operating hours. And unlike a school, we don't require you to have a teaching certificate. We will require you to take a math assessment, and once your qualifications are reviewed and deemed sufficient, we will train you in our methodology.

Our backgrounds are diverse. Some of us have or are working towards our math degrees. Others have degrees in the sciences and humanities. Some of us are school teachers. We are also athletes, musicians, and artists. Bottom line, all of us love math, and love seeing that spark of understanding on a student's face. We work hard, and we love what we do.

We are in the midst of an aggressive hiring campaign, so your inquiry will be read. If you're interested in joining our team, send your resume to granger@mathnasium.com . Thanks so much, and we look forward to hearing from you!
