Math Tutor (part-time)

Atrium School (PreK – Grade 8), Watertown, MA

Atrium School currently seeks a part-time (3 or 4 days per week) math tutor who would be paid privately by families. The hours would be negotiable, ideally within school hours, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. With a passion for and specialization in mathematics, you would work with students individually or in small groups, providing them with support and guidance to improve their understanding and skills in mathematics. Your primary responsibility will be to assist students in comprehending mathematical concepts, solving problems, and developing effective study strategies. Atrium teachers will work in partnership to support that goal.

As a self-employed tutor, this would naturally involve invoicing and collecting payment directly from families, who will welcome this support for their child.  As a service provider who works on the school site, you would also be required to secure liability insurance and a background check.  At the same time, Atrium will provide an already established clientele, facilitate and encourage connections with families, offer contact information regarding insurance and background checks, and ensure that an appropriate space is available to work in the school.
