Executive Function coach, Educational Therapist, Tutor, Learning Specialist

NeuroMethod Tutoring - Multiple Locations - Full time

We are looking to fill an immediate opening for a full-time or part-time Educational Therapist/Tutor/Learning Specialist/Executive Function Coach with paid prep-time!

Cover letter required.

Do you want a career in Education that will pay you competitively and pay you for ALL of your work time, including prep time, not just session time?

Would you like to work for a company that has a positive impact on the world?

Would you like to be part of a small, family-owned business where you will be personally mentored by the founder and owner of the company?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, this may be the job or you!

We are a conscious company whose culture is built on mindfulness and non-violent communication (NVC), as developed by Marshall Rosenberg. We are a safe workplace that supports diversity of ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation. We want all of our employees and clients to feel safe, respected, and supported for who they are.

We are a company that focuses on the empowerment and independence of our students by taking a psychological approach to tutoring. We provide tutoring that draws from neuroscience, psychology, peak-performance coaching, mindfulness, and education. We provide tutor-training in these areas.

Our learning specialists / tutors are responsible for supporting the mastery of content as well as each individual student's process of learning. We work both with students who have learning and/or psychological challenges, as well as top performers who want to take their skills to the next level.

A thorough background check will be part of the application process.
