Tutor/Course Instructor

Jacksonville, FL


Salary: $60.00 to $90.00 /hour

University Select, a unique SAT & ACT test preparation company, seeks tutors to join the teaching team in Jacksonville/NE Florida. After completing an initial period of training to master our outside-the-box strategies and data resources, tutors begin in our one-on-one program. After gaining experience with our program, tutors may opt to teach in our classes, including an HS912-University Select program in Duval County Public Schools.


  • PAY:In the first year, tutors receive $60 per One-on-One tutoring hour & $80 per teaching hour in our courses.

  • TRAINING:Training takes approximately 20 hours, with ongoing mentorship once tutoring begins. Using our interactive platform, training is easy, succinct, done at your own pace, and can be completed virtually.

  • FLEXIBILITY:Tutors work with University Select to set their own schedule. Subject to demand, tutors set their own hours and specify the number of students they wish to teach.

  • COMPREHENSIVE:Tutors are backed by our data and our sophisticated, yet easy to teach ACT and SAT methods. Our online student assessment platform prioritizes the question types and resources most relevant to each student


An ideal candidate will have a background in education and a record of academic excellence. This can obviously be measured in several ways, and, ultimately we are looking for the best teachers out there. However, successful candidates in the past have had one of the following qualifications:

  • A Master’s level degree or higher (others have had an ABD or Professional degree),

  • An undergraduate degree from a competitive institution, or

  • A record of teaching excellence at the high school level.

Note: While it is wonderful to have a tutor equally comfortable in both Verbal and Math sections, we are open to tutors who might want to specialize in either section.


At University Select we value excellence, evolution, accountability, and data.

We aim to package our programs such that they are seamless to teach. Instead of starting from scratch –as we did over four years ago – tutors can start with sophisticated, yet easy to teach SAT & ACT Programs. Our online platform identifies and prioritizes the question type and resources that are most relevant to each of your students. Our strategies, while grounded in data and in higher education methods, are held to the following litmus test: can they be simply and consistently applied by a wide range of students? We provide ongoing mentoring for tutors in our program, including planning sessions for your students and a library of tutor reference materials. We provide the program: the practice materials, the analytics, the mentorship, and the teaching materials. You guide the student through our program.

Our tutor training program is completed virtually with one final exit interview. A tutor begins with one-on-one tutoring and, after mastering our program, may graduate to teaching courses. In addition to a library of tutor reference materials, tutors are provided mentorship during their first few months, including joint planning sessions for your students.
