Position Description:    

Art of Problem Solving (AoPS) develops educational opportunities for many of the most eager students in the world.  Since 2003, we have trained tens of thousands of the country’s top students, including nearly all the members of the US International Math Olympiad team, through our online school, learning centers, textbooks, and online learning systems. Over the years, our international online community of advanced problem solvers has grown to nearly 700,000 members. While our primary focus has been math for most of our history, we have started expanding into new subjects, such as language arts, science, and computer science.

AoPS Academy is bringing our math classes to students in a brand new way with our AoPS Academy: Virtual Campus! Just like our traditional AoPS Academy experience, our range of course offerings allows students the opportunity to explore new interests while strengthening their math and problem-solving skills. With small class sizes and a virtual classroom setting that allows participants to see and talk to each other in real time, our students will have access to some of the most highly accomplished instructors in the nation, and we want you to be one of them!

We have immediate class openings for our summer High School Math Contests course. Teachers with experience in leading high school or college math competitions are highly encouraged to apply! 

Job Duties:

  • Teach enthusiastic elementary, middle, and high school students in our online classrooms. Most of our Year-Round classes take place Monday - Friday from 1:00-6:00pm PT and Sundays from 7:00am-4:00pm PT. Our Summer classes run Monday-Friday with morning and afternoon sessions.
  • Use our curriculum to teach participation-oriented classes that focus on instruction and developing skills, not on rote memorization.
  • Work in small classes (average size 12) with top performing students who are passionate about learning and are motivated to succeed.

Requirements:

  • Must have a solid academic background in mathematics. A bachelor's degree in a STEM field is required. A master's degree or higher in a STEM field is preferred.
  • Must have some experience using Zoom or similar video conferencing software and be comfortable managing a classroom in a virtual setting.
  • Must have some experience teaching or tutoring students at the K-12 level. Some experience working with advanced students is preferred.
  • Experience with math contests or competitions is a big plus!
  • At this time we are only hiring instructors who are located in and authorized to work in the United States.

We're an equal opportunity employer. All applicants will be considered for employment without attention to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, veteran or disability status.
