Who is a typical PrepMatters employee? We work hard, love what we do and believe that our tutoring services can make a difference.
Who We Are:
PrepMatters, Inc. is the premier source in the Washington metro area for one-on-one test preparation, academic tutoring, and educational planning. Our tutoring staff helps students and families navigate the whole alphabet of standardized tests, ranging from the SSAT/ISEE/HSPT for middle-schoolers to the SAT/ACT/AP for high schoolers to the GRE/GMAT/LSAT/MCAT for college students. We take pride in our deep understanding not only of the tests but also of how to effectively communicate with and bring out the best in our students.
PrepMatters is looking for bright, dynamic people to join our paid tutor training class, leading to work as a professional SAT/ACT and academic tutor in our Bethesda, Tenleytown, or McLean offices. Weekly training sessions will be required of new hires. Part-time tutors start at $40-$70/hr commensurate with their experience. Our part-time employees enjoy paid sick leave, FSA plans and a SIMPLE IRA with a 3% employer match. All of our colleagues enjoy beautifully furnished offices with fully stocked kitchens. Our full-time operations team supports our tutors administratively so that our tutors can focus on the work that matters most: helping students!
