What’s the position? GMAT, SAT and LSAT teachers (you can be hired to teach one, two or all three of these tests!)
What kind of person are you looking for? All Knewton teachers should be passionate about education, outstanding at taking tests, and, above all, extremely fun to listen to. You’ve got to command a classroom’s attention without being in the same physical room as your students. We like people with interesting backgrounds, the ability to tell a joke, and a love of combining learning and having a good time.
If the first round goes well, then you will be invited back to present some test questions on camera. There, we’ll be looking for your terrific presentational skills. Make sure you don’t fall into the trap of “over-explaining.” Once a question has been explained, ask the students if they understood, and if they did, then move on! If they didn’t, then be fluid, and have a secondary method or explanation ready to go.
Final thoughts. If you look at our teachers page, you will see that we’ve got actors, musicians, web designers, weathermen, scientists, martial arts masters, you name it. There is no “correct person” for a Knewton teacher. We love diversity, and we love people who keep things interesting. I really hope to hear from you soon!
