Full-Time Test Prep Tutor

Central New Jersey


We are looking for talented educators to join our full-time tutoring family.


WHERE will you be working? 

  • Central New Jersey (Essex, Morris, Union, Somerset counties)
  • 3-4 days in students’ homes or in the market’s office, 1-2 days online.

WHEN will you be working?

  • We will extend two-year offers because we believe tutors truly begin to hit their stride in their second year with us. 
  • Tutoring hours: Monday through Thursday 3-9 pm, Sundays 9am-6 pm. 
  • Non-tutoring hours: weekday mornings and early afternoons are flexible, but responsiveness via email and phone is always expected. 
  • Days off: Fridays and Saturdays.
  • Vacation: It’s not a bottomless brunch kind of situation, but we have an open-leave policy, which means you are able to take time off when you need to or want to as long as you work closely with your team to determine the ideal times, given your responsibilities to your students. Communication is key. 

WHAT will you be doing? 

  • Supporting a caseload of up to 16 students. 
  • Tutoring all sections (verbal, math, & science) of the SAT & ACT and middle school test prep, as well as any other high school subjects you are qualified to teach, depending on demand. 
  • Outside of active tutoring, you will be preparing for lessons, writing lesson summaries and submitting within 24 hours, communicating proactively with students, families, and the Central New Jersey team, and consistently bringing your best self to your work so that your students can thrive. 
  • Actively participating in Private Prep Development opportunities and conversations and pushing us to be better each day. 
  • Contributing to making our students better able to tackle the challenges they will encounter. 

WHO are you? (That’s right, I’m going to tell you. Sort of.)

  • A college graduate, with a car, and 1-5 yrs of experience mentoring, tutoring and/or teaching (bonus points for experience with SAT & ACT prep). 
  • An excellent communicator: folks rarely send back many rows of question marks to your emails. 
  • A believer in learning as a lifelong endeavor. 
  • A  confident, charismatic, compassionate, people person. 
  • A self-starter and a collaborator. You must enjoy problem-solving independently, while also actively contributing to the team’s mission. 

WHY should you apply? 

  • Providing support for students during a pivotal time in their lives is pretty freaking cool and meaningful. 
  • Salary depends on experience, but ranges from $45-50k and includes a full benefits package (healthcare, cell phone plan, home-office stipend, technology stipend, etc.). 
  • Private Prep is actively working to become better at supporting students, staff, and our broader communities. We need awesome people on our team to push us forward on that journey. Your voice would hold real weight here.
