Director of Tutoring Growth and Impact

Hill Learning Center - Durham, North Carolina - Full time

About the Role - Director of Tutoring Growth & Impact 

We are seeking an educational entrepreneur who can creatively and systematically envision and execute a strategic path forward for tutoring programs at Hill. The Director of Tutoring Growth & Impact is the de facto CEO/Executive Director of our growing tutoring business.

This role will report to the Head of School and be part of the Student Programs team that includes Hill School, Hill Summer, and Hill Tutoring. The Director of Tutoring Growth & Impact will supervise the Associate Director of Tutoring and Tutoring Support role while working collaboratively across the organization. This role will have ultimate accountability for approximately 55 tutors, a part-time educator force that will likely need to grow.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Developing a unified vision and plan for tutoring that encompasses family and project tutoring, on-site and virtual.
  • Balancing priorities that carry inherent tensions, like income generation while furthering access.
  • Strengthening systems and structures while ensuring integration with the overall student admissions process and portfolio or programs as well as appropriate alignment with professional learning and partnership efforts with schools and districts.
  • Engaging with a variety of stakeholders, both internal and external including families, students, community partners, schools/school districts, tutors, and the Hill Team.
  • Building, continuously strengthening, and diversifying the base of Hill tutors.
  • Leading and developing a collaborative, effective, cross-functional tutoring team.

Your Skills & Competencies

This work is entrepreneurial, collaborative, and challenging. The Director of Tutoring Growth & Impact will be a self-starter who is committed to their learning and growth and possesses the following skills and competencies:

  • Structured Delegator: You give clear, well-defined instructions, and rely on people to own significant responsibilities, and you hold them accountable. Your scope is less of a manager and more of a "player-coach" and deeply engaged cross-collaborator who is probing issues and execution rigorously and ensuring that systems and processes are in place to service clients.
  • Mobilizer. You’ve got that rare mix of vision, tactics, and earned influence that makes other leaders admire you. You've worked in multiple teams configurations on a range of different projects, and are ready to roll up your sleeves and get in the trenches yourself. You think in systems and not silos.
  • Self-motivated: You proactively take the initiative, identifying problems and opportunities across your line of business, developing recommendations, and taking action on those recommendations.
  • Ambitious and Tenacious: You thrive with ambitious goals and metrics ahead of you and you won’t stop until they’re met.
  • Adaptable: You thrive in an ambiguous environment where you have the autonomy to drive your work.
  • Learning Mindset: You desire continuous improvement, have an innate sense of curiosity, and are grounded by a foundation of self-awareness that provides space for learning and growth.
  • Passion for Social Change: You are driven by the desire to contribute to making change in our society, making education work for all people. You’re interested in system integration and social impact.

What You'll Need

  • 5+ years of overall professional experience (we are background agnostic and are excited by candidates with unique and different work histories).
  • An understanding of K-12 education, ideally specific experience with learning development, tutoring, and/or managing educational programs.
  • Experience owning/running a business unit; being responsible for a P&L.
  • A growth-mentality; you’re unafraid to shift, stumble, and grow within an ever-changing landscape.
  • A deep personal commitment to inclusion and curiosity about “whose voice is not at the table?” Experience working with diverse teams and successfully navigating cross-culturally.

Compensation and Location

Hill provides its employees with a competitive salary. Hill also provides a comprehensive benefits package, including competitive rates for employees/families/dependents, generous paid leave policies including holidays, a generous match of employee contributions to the 403b retirement plan, tuition discount for student programs, and a collegial working environment that supports professional development, wellness, and flexible telecommuting options within the Triangle area.

Compensation for this role starts at $80K and can increase based on the candidate’s level of experience. With that said, don’t allow the salary to limit your interest - all you need is a resume to apply, no cover letter.

This role must be based in the Research Triangle area (Durham-Chapel Hill-Raleigh, NC), with a heavy onsite presence at Hill in Durham. Candidates will be able to start virtually in this role but must be able to relocate within a reasonable amount of time.
