Tutoring Jobs

TutorNerds is always actively seeking competent and experienced tutoring/teaching professionals with a great creative vibe and a passion for helping students reach their goals.

Our services cover a broad range of subjects, but tutors need only be knowledgeable in their individual fields and subjects. We welcome applicants with experience in any academic area!


Why work with TutorNerds?

We highly value our tutors, and our policies reflect this

  • We have students in need of tutors right now, so you will be set up with clients quickly.

  • We only schedule your clients at ideal times for your schedule. For example, we have tutors who work full time with us, while others work elsewhere and would prefer to only tutor a few students—We value both types of tutors!

  • Competitive pay—between $32.50 and $75.00 per hour (depending on subject area)

  • Grow with the company—Corporate opportunities may be available to those who prove themselves especially creative and professional.


Additional Requirements:

We only hire experienced professionals, ensuring quality tutoring for our students. Requirements include:

  • Bachelor’s degree (current college students working towards B.A. acceptable only if they are 12-18 units away from matriculation)

  • Minimum availability of 4-6 hours a week

  • Reliable transportation (be prepared to potentially drive distances of at least 10 miles from your home to your client for in-home tutoring)

  • Enthusiastic, Engaging, and Professional—We seek tutors who truly have fun teaching and make the experience enjoyable for students.  At the same time, it is vital that you are punctual and pleasant with all clients.
