Summary: We're a progressive, established school in Bellevue, WA looking for experienced MATH, ENGLISH or MATH+ENGLISH instructors. Expertise in either area is OK, but if you can teach both subjects, that's even better. We are seeking part-time and/or full-time teachers. If this sounds of interest to you, keep reading.
Are you looking for exceptional students and the possibility of long-term, stable employment and benefits? This is a unique opportunity for qualified instructors with a proven track record.
MERCER EDUCATION serves a diverse group of students, many of whom are preparing for highly selective universities around the country. Our students range from elementary school age through college to professional adults. Most of our teachers have advanced degrees and several years of teaching experience in a variety of classroom settings. In addition to competitive hourly pay DOE, we offer medical coverage options (including vision and dental) and a Simple IRA plan for eligible employees. Additionally, there are approximately five weeks during the year (in June, August, December) when classes are not scheduled and teachers have time off from the busy year-round schedule of classes. Other perks include easy access to freeways, free parking, all the coffee, tea, and hot chocolate you can drink while teaching established programs in a unique, upbeat working environment with professional, dedicated staff and motivated clientele. EOE.
PART-TIME or FULL-TIME TEACHING OPPORTUNITY - This position would be part-time hourly to start (as few as 8 hrs/week) but - if you are interested - could build to a full-time (average 32 or more hours/week over 12 months), position for the right candidate.
YEAR-ROUND TEACHING OPPORTUNITY - Seeking candidates with availability during the school year, availability of at least 8 hrs/week (the more, the better, w/priority for those w/more availability) during our peak hours (after school, evenings and at least one weekend day). For instructors seeking more limited hours, our priority would be weekend availability. For instructors looking for more hours, we request availability during our peak hours of operation (after school, evenings and at least one full weekend day).
