ArborBridge tutors are an elite class of educators who bring a combination of expertise, enthusiasm, and organization to their work, breaking down complex ideas and ensuring that students (and their families) are well supported in the standardized testing process, from beginning to end.

We are lucky to work with a dynamic team of tutors who excel at building genuine relationships with families and confidently guiding students toward their academic and test-taking goals. We are looking for tutors who want to join our tight-knit team and contribute to the success of students around the world.

About you:

To thrive in ArborBridge’s Online History Tutor position, it’s helpful if you are…

A History Test Prep Expert.

You have formal experience tutoring World and US History at the AP and Subject Test level. You know both tests inside and out and can confidently answer any student or parent question. You have a proven track record of helping students achieve outstanding score improvements, and families who work with you sing your praises. You are truly at the forefront of test preparation and enjoy keeping yourself up to date on changes to the exams and the test-taking process.

An Engaging and Effective Educator.  

Education is your passion, and private, one-on-one online tutoring is your ideal method for providing a top-notch experience for your students and their families. You’re not interested in on-demand homework help. Instead, you like to look at the big picture: You map out personalized lesson plans, solidify practice test timelines, identify the right amount of homework, and propose the ideal meeting schedule to help your students reach their goals. You understand that building relationships with your students and their families is a key part of the process, and you can adapt to various needs with ease.

A Quick and Thorough Communicator.

You also understand that part of building relationships is being a reliable and clear communicator. You make it a priority to respond to phone calls and emails from parents, students, and your ArborBridge colleagues in a quick and thorough manner. You never leave anyone hanging more than 24 hours, and you’re obsessive about updating your calendar and keeping track of your to-do list. You know that excellent communication = excellent customer service, and you strive to provide the very best.

An Organized and Proactive Problem-Solver.

You remember well how stressful the test-taking process can be, and you are always thinking of ways you can ease the burden for your clients. You’re adept at spotting potential problems in a program from a mile away and proactive about addressing them as soon as possible. If you get a message from a concerned parent or a colleague who needs your input on a program, you are quick to respond and prepared to offer multiple solutions.
