Online Math Tutor

Cignition - Remote - Part time

Mathematics is a beautiful subject, full of compelling intellectual challenges and deep connections to virtually every aspect of life. If this sounds like something you would say, then we're looking for you! Being a math tutor is a wonderful opportunity to support students in developing their critical thinking, socio-emotional, and math understanding -- skills that they will use throughout their lives. Each student sees math from a unique perspective, which is often very different from our own. This is why teaching math requires more creativity (and more understanding) than we might imagine. We're hoping for a tutor that is super excited about math and ready to share that passion with their students. Again, if that's you, we can't wait to support you!

At Cignition, we’re committed to building something extraordinary, and we won’t settle for anything less than the most talented, innovative, passionate, and committed tutors we can find. Our goal is to engage tutors who are committed to tutoring students in an equitable and student-centered manner by making a dynamic online learning environment which encourages student-to-student interaction and builds deep conceptual understanding.

Cignition works with you to provide online tutoring sessions that match your schedule and tutoring interests. We provide tutors with instructional resources and our unique system aggregates detailed topic and concept-level data collected through student activities. Each session begins with tutors receiving a rich profile for each student from which to best understand their needs.

Cignition has several grant-based and district-specific programs launching that require tutors to be available consistently for 30-60 minute windows 2-5 times per week. These programs last from one semester to an entire school year and can take place between 8 am and 8pm EST on weekdays. Weekend sessions may be available during the school year depending on a school district's need. These programs have an expectation that tutors work with the same small groups each week as relationships are crucial to student learning.

Our Model:

  • Cignition works with several school districts across the country from K-12
  • Tutors work with groups of 3-4 students.
  • We place a strong emphasis on inquiry and collaborative learning
  • We value rigor and exceptionally high expectations in addition to differentiated support to meet the needs of all students

As part of your commitment, we ask that you:

  • Embody Cignition’s mission and core values.
  • Facilitate engaging, differentiated, student-centered, appropriately paced, and rigorous instruction in a virtual learning environment.
  • Establish and maintain a culture of growth and achievement in your online classroom.
  • Use data to inform instructional development and delivery.

What you’ll need:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Education or a Math related field
  • Access to a computer with a reliable internet connection
  • A strong belief that all students can succeed; regardless of their race, class, or gender
  • Experience teaching/tutoring small groups of students
  • Math content and pedagogical knowledge for teaching math

Compensation and Benefits:

Salary for this position is between $20/hr.-$25/hr. We value a diverse workforce, as it brings a variety of perspectives and ideas contributing to our enthusiastic culture of learning.
