Job Description

Turn your knowledge and passion into meaningful impact! Join our team.

Do you like the sound of uniquely rewarding and meaningful work, guiding students and their families through one of the most challenging times of their lives? We offer a flexible, part-time position with good stability and pay, as well as opportunities for growth.

More Than Scores And Tests offers one-on-one tutoring and college consulting services focused on providing a personal, customized educational experience for students and their families. Our teaching practices and materials have been developed and refined through the Harvard Graduate School of Education and the Harvard Innovation Lab, and we specialize in providing research-based, quality education that builds student aptitude for immediate and future successes. Our students and families have seen dramatic improvements in their outlook, confidence, and aptitude.

Who We Are

Just as our name says, More Than Scores And Tests is built on the belief in the inherent value, significance, and potential of each unique student. We offer a customized tutoring solution that focuses not only on addressing the students’ learning difficulties and challenges but also on maximizing their strengths. Learning good study skills and habits is an integral part of our curriculum, so that our students can learn “how to study” not just “what to study.” In addition, we have a variety of consulting programs through which we offer a holistic solution for families in their endeavor to navigate the college process.

Unlike other tutoring companies, More Than S.A.T. focuses on basic study skills that can be applicable to students’ high school classes, college test prep, and even college and career. We teach our students to set achievable goals and celebrate small successes throughout the process. A significant increase in their test scores in only one of these successes. Students are motivated to go beyond “just test prep” because they discover their true potential and learn how to use their strengths and leverage their weaknesses. We have seen many students change their entire outlook on academics and become confident young adults taking ownership of their lives.
