Our Academic Coaches are responsible for fostering an engaging and personal learning experience for every student. We are looking for passionate educators who want to make a difference in kids' lives!

If you thrive on seeing that moment when a child learns something new and their face lights up with excitement this position is perfect for you! Or if have you been frustrated with your inability to dig deeper into the needs of each of your students due to the pace and size of your classroom, this position will fit the bill!
Our part-time Academic Coaches will be trained on the Sylvan curriculum and given the tools to teach in a small group, 3-4 students per teacher. We provide personalized instruction in Reading, Math, Writing, Study Skills, SAT/ACT Prep, and homework support.
