Pt-time Math Instructors, Mathnasium of Andorra

Part-time Math Instructors Needed!!
A Math Learning Center in Philadelphia, Mathnasium of Andorra (just north of Manayunk and Roxborough in the Andorra Shopping Center), has part-time openings for highly skilled and motivated Instructors who have strong math backgrounds (experience with K-8 for one position and experience with 6th through Calculus for the other) and love working with children of all ages. Knowledge of Everyday Math is a plus. This is not one on one tutoring (although due to scheduling, it may turn out to be), so being able to instruct up to 4 students at one time is key. Also, being able to redirect when the child is not understanding the topic at hand is critical. Managerial opportunities await those who show leadership qualities. Instructors must be open to learning a new way to present math to students as well. This is a great opportunity for current education majors or new educators who are interested in learning great methods to explain an often confusing subject.
Instructors must be available at 3pm, or possibly earlier, Monday through Friday. Preference will be given to those who are interested in also taking on some administrative roles at the center. This position may eventually transition into the Center Director position. Qualified candidates must feel comfortable interacting with parents, enjoy taking on multiple roles, and know how to deliver excellent customer service. Experience with and a desire to use social media or other creative avenues for marketing is a huge plus.
The position requires at least a year long commitment due to the extensive training involved. Instructors are paid hourly and receive increases after successfully completing initial training, with longevity or with taking on additional roles (teaching Calculus and taking on Center Director roles will garner a higher rate, to be discussed in screening process).
To respond: DO NOT SEND RESUMES. Instead in an email, tell why you are the best candidate for the position, your available days & hours, a phone # and the best times to reach you. If you are called for an interview, you will be asked to submit a resume at that time. Candidates must be able to pass all clearances (Criminal, FBI, Child Abuse), so those who have them will accelerate through the process. Please send emails to email@example.com.
