Art of Problem Solving (AoPS) develops educational materials and opportunities for high-performing math students in grades 2-12. Our online community at aops.com has over 100,000 members and hundreds of thousands of visitors each month. Our textbooks have been used by tens of thousands of students, including many winners of major national contests such as MATHCOUNTS and the American Mathematics Competitions. Our online school serves thousands of students each year with courses in middle school and high school math, contest preparation, and computer science.
We seek instructors who wish to spread their understanding and love of math to the next generation of math superstars in our online school. Most courses are 12-18 weeks in length, which include 90 or 120 minutes of live (online) instruction one day per week, generally starting at 7:30 PM Eastern Time. Instructors will also be expected to spend sufficient time to prepare for each week's class (a detailed curriculum for each class will be provided), to participate in message board discussions during the week between classes, to review students' graded homework assignments, and to provide recommendations or written evaluations of students upon request. We expect that a typical instructor will spend about 2-4 hours per week outside of class time performing these other duties.
We seek only instructors of the highest caliber. Successful applicants will have most or all of:
Individual course instructors for our online school are contracted on a course-by-course basis. Each course requires 4-6 hours of time per week (as described above) and the work can be performed from anywhere. Reliability is essential: instructors must ensure that they are available and have access to a stable internet connection during class times, and non-class-time tasks must be completed in a punctual manner.
