Academic Coach - Science, (United States) - $100,000/year USD

Job ID: 4894

Do you know the secret to acing the AP Biology & Chemistry exams? If you crushed your own exams and are ready to help other students do the same, join! helps gifted and talented students accelerate their learning via fully remote educational apps. We believe technology can deliver an educational experience that engages and teaches kids 3-5x faster than the standard teacher-classroom model. 

You will approach learning through the lens of tutoring: when students only have 1-2 hours a week to spend on a subject, what are the most important concepts, tools, and skills to learn? Success in this role will be measured by the percentage of students scoring 4+ on their AP exams.

If you’re eager to give kids a learning experience that actually makes them love school, we urge you to apply.
