Remote Test Prep Expert

Magoosh - Berkeley, California or Remote - Part time

About the Job

Magoosh has a diverse group of students from around the world who need passionate, hardworking, and empathetic teachers like you to support them on their test-prep journeys and help them reach (and hopefully exceed) their goals. As Magoosh students prepare for their exam by watching lesson videos, answering practice problems, and taking mock exams, they sometimes need personal support to fully understand concepts and maximize their progress. As a Remote Test Prep Expert, you will join a team of experienced teachers crafting written responses to our students that help them master challenging math concepts, apprehend meandering verbal passages, and supercharge their study skills.

This is a remote, part-time position (i.e., work from home). Pay starts at $21.50/hour, with opportunities for advancement. You must be authorized to work in the U.S. for this position.

In this position, you will…

  • Write answers to student questions about the GRE, GMAT, SAT, ACT, IELTS, TOEFL, and other exams via e-mail
  • Support students who come from 100+ countries and all walks of life to learn and grow on their test-prep journey with academic expertise and empathy
  • Encourage students to succeed and ensure that they have fun while preparing for their test
  • Contribute to making our overall student academic support process more effective
  • Future responsibilities may include other content-related projects if desired


  • Have previous experience as a tutor or teacher
  • Have outstanding writing skills—a grammar maven with a clear, friendly writing style
  • Able to teach and explain foundational concepts in math, grammar, reading, science and other exam subjects through written correspondence
  • Have a top score in one or more of the following exams: GRE, GMAT, ACT or SAT
  • Hold a BA or BS
  • Are always plugged in and very responsive online
  • Can work a minimum of 15 hours/week
  • Are looking to be with Magoosh for 1+ years

Extra credit if you…

  • A notable percentage of our students are EFL, so having experience teaching/tutoring IELTS, TOEFL, or EFL is a big plus!
  • Are familiar with Zendesk, Slack, and Asana
  • Have previous experience with live chat support
