Applerouth Tutors are a group of highly talented, trained, and motivated people who have been helping students get into their dream colleges and beyond, for the past 20 years. We’re currently looking to hire new tutors in the DMV area.
Among our ranks are valedictorians, salutatorians, National Merit Scholars, academics, faith leaders, lawyers, artists, actors, career mathematicians, and classroom teachers, all of whom share a commitment and passion to positively influencing their students’ lives. Our motto is ‘Better Tutors. Better Results.’ and we are proud of the fact that our tutors outshine those of other companies in the industry. With individual, need-based tutoring focusing on the particular problem areas of each student, our tutors help high school students prepare for the SAT and ACT, as well as high school and college subjects, AP exams, and graduate exams.
Has it been a while since you’ve done the quadratic formula? Haven’t taken the SAT since it was graded out of 2400? Not to fear: we’re looking for smart, competent educators with a love of learning and a can-do mindset. You’ll refresh your test prep skills with a rigorous, paid training that ensures you meet Applerouth standards before working with our families. Training provides new tutors with extensive knowledge of both the SAT and ACT, as well as pedagogical strategies to help tutor different types of students. We also provide regular supplemental training to help tutors stay aware of changes to both tests and pedagogy.
Successful Applerouth tutors have taken many paths to arrive here, but share a commitment to positively influencing people’s lives. Jenna, a Premium tutor, majored in English and Drama at a public university and then lived abroad for five years to pursue art-focused studies. Now she does algebra problems as a form of meditation and utilizes her theatre background to incorporate students’ body language into her pedagogy. If learning new skills and new ways to think excites you, then Applerouth is the place for you!
At Applerouth, we continually update our teaching methods and materials to incorporate the most current findings from educational researchers. We stay abreast of current research in student cognition, meta-cognition, memory, test-anxiety, self-efficacy, student motivation, and other aspects of student learning. We place a greater focus on the process side of standardized testing than do many of our competitors, allowing us to positively impact many students whose needs would not be met by attention to content alone.
