THE PRINCETON REVIEW is looking for individuals who are bright, dynamic and energetic to teach our SAT courses throughout Suffolk and Nassau Counties.
Examples of Long Island cities where we teach and tutor are:
Franklin Square, East Meadow, Elmont, Hempstead, Holbrook, Great Neck, Lake Success, Manhasset, Patchogue, Selden, Southampton, Stony Brook, Syosset, Westhampton
The Princeton Review specializes in teaching students techniques to crack the SAT and many other graduate level entrance exams, such as the LSAT, GMAT, GRE and MCAT. We are always looking for intelligent, motivated, charismatic, and reliable people in your area. Many of our teachers find this job a flexible and exciting way to supplement their primary salaries, as our tutoring and classroom teaching occurs in virtually all areas on summer mornings and afternoons, weekday evenings, and on weekends. Our current staff of expert instructors includes: attorneys, writers, educators, graduate students, actors, full-time parents, psychologists and researchers, to name but a few. It’s truly the best part-time job around.
Your paid training will enable you to teach students to control the math, reading and writing sections of the SAT. All teachers instruct all topic areas covered on the SAT.
A classroom course (typically around 10 to 20 students) occurs at rented sites such as high schools and colleges, and classroom sessions are three hours in duration.
Our typical year round (including summer) classroom courses meet regularly once or twice a week during weeknights (6:00 - 9:00 PM) and weekends, for approximately 5-6 weeks until the next actual SAT date. Please research our classroom offerings to assess your availability by visiting www.princetonreview.com, and inserting your zip code in the upper right window. Then click on actual course links to study the full list of dates and times.

A short required phone interview is followed by a group audition/interview, described below. NOTE: you will need to attend only ONE audition date.
Selected dates in April, May, June to be discussed in interview
THE AUDITION is a screening process that has two parts, both on the same night: 1. taking a one hour reading, writing, and math SAT content quiz, and 2. giving a 5 minute teaching presentation to the other five or so candidates on any subject you like, except test preparation or academic topics. This is not a lecture; we would like you to instruct a small group of two to six other candidates how to do something or about something, in part or in whole, in your presentation. Examples: how to pack a backpack, how to wrap a present, how to paint a wall, how to organize a political campaign, how to decorate a dorm room, how to tie dye a t-shirt, how to raise a sail, how to drive a 5-speed auto, how to throw a New Year’s party, how to buy your father-in-law a birthday present, how to be more Canadian in Canada. The point is not to finish your entire topic in 5 minutes, but to show that you have an involving presence and clear communication style when leading a discussion. The more engaging and interactive a group experience, the better. Props, visual aides, and handouts are welcome, and a wipe board will also be available. No PowerPoint presentations are allowed.
Once you pass the two-part audition, THE TRAINING that follows is on July weekends.
