At Supercorn Tutoring, one of our many perks for tutors is our ability to provide a consistent schedule. If the tutor is performing well, they are able to continue teaching the same classes, at the same time each day, month after month.
Don't worry, we make the hiring process very easy and take care of the dirty work for you!
How much does a Supercorn tutor earn?
We begin with a baseline pay of $12/hour. For those who have prior teaching experience with children and/or teaching certifications, there is potential for pay raises. Exceptional tutoring performance with Supercorn may yield increased pay, as well.
Along with great part-time pay, we're able to provide superior service, a great company culture, and additional trainings to each and every one of our tutors.
Do I need to provide my own teaching materials?
The curriculum taught during each class is already provided. Any additional videos, games, activities, etc. is always more than welcome.
Do teachers always have the same students?
In short, yes.
One of the values of our business is being able to provide a comfortable learning environment to each child. With tutors who are just starting out, we are not yet able to guarantee their classes will remain constant, but as tutors prove their reliability, they are assigned to specific classes that can last anywhere from six months to a year.
We have noticed that children learn better when they have the same teacher because it allows for them to be comfortable. When students have a different teacher week after week, they are not able to learn as well due to complications such as the students being timid, nervous, along with many other barriers that arise from unfamiliarity.
