Who We Are
TeamUP! Tutors is dedicated to promoting academic excellence through private, in-home tutoring. Our mission is to match students with the most qualified tutors available. We bring students and tutors together.
Is TeamUP! Tutors Right For You?
Tutors work with us for a variety of reasons: to broaden their market reach, to locate students who require their specific skill sets, and to focus on what they love to do . . . teach.
You could be a great match for TeamUP! Tutors. Please consider applying if you are an educator committed to:
- Demonstrating thorough subject-matter expertise
- Promoting a positive learning environment
- Building successful working relationships
- Tailoring each tutoring session to provide the highest quality educational service
- Balancing compassion and caring with discipline and firmness
- Reinforcing student self-confidence and self-esteem
We partner with tutors who share our guiding principle: Within every student there is great aptitude for learning and unlimited potential for personal growth.
Requirements may vary with the needs of particular students. However, we specifically seek tutors who share our values and:
- Enjoy working with and helping students
- Have a background in education or relevant tutoring experience
- Are subject matter experts, particularly for higher grade levels
- Can commit to working at least two full school semesters
TeamUP! Tutors will make sure specific requirements are met and check your references to ensure your experiences and work ethics match our requirements.
Since every tutor we place is a qualified professional, we do not require that you follow a set curriculum. We do, however, provide a Student Success Plan and guidelines to increase your tutoring effectiveness.
Tutors are not employees of TeamUP! Tutors; they work as independent contractors. As a tutor, you are responsible for setting your own hours, scheduling student appointments at mutually convenient times, choosing the best materials, and having a reliable car to go to and from each tutoring session.
Following each tutoring session, tutors are responsible for recording notes and reporting hours.
TeamUP! Tutors manages student billing and is responsible for timely payments to the tutor. As required by the IRS, cumulative payments equal to or greater than $600 in a year will be reported on a Form 1099- Misc. Tutors are responsible for declaring their income. Please contact your accountant or tax attorney for advice.
If you would like more information about how we work, please read our Tutor FAQ. We enthusiastically welcome the addition of new talent at all times. If you are interested in working with TeamUP! Tutors, please apply.
We look forward to hearing from you!
