Applerouth has been helping high school students get into their dream colleges for the past 15 years, and we are currently looking to hire 8-10 new tutors in Fairfield County and the surrounding areas. Our tutors help high school students prepare for the SAT and ACT, as well as for high school and college subjects, AP exams, SAT Subject tests, and graduate exams. 

Applerouth Tutors are a group of highly talented, trained and motivated people dedicated to helping students get into their schools of choice. Our motto is 'Better Tutors. Better Results.' and we are proud of the fact that our tutors outshine those of other companies in the industry. Among our ranks are Valedictorians, Salutatorians, and National Merit Scholars. 

We pride ourselves on our extremely competent tutors, who work individually with students to provide individual, need-based tutoring, focusing on the particular problem areas of each student. 

At Applerouth, we continually update our teaching methods and materials to incorporate the most current findings from educational researchers. We stay abreast of current research in student cognition, meta-cognition, memory, test-anxiety, self-efficacy, student motivation, and other aspects of student learning. We place a greater focus on the process side of standardized testing than do many of our competitors, allowing us to positively impact many students whose needs would not be met by attention to content alone. 

New tutors go through paid training to provide them with extensive knowledge of both the SAT and ACT, as well as pedagogical strategies to help tutor different types of students. We also provide regular supplemental training to help tutors stay aware of changes to both tests and pedagogy. 

The reason Applerouth tutors are the happiest tutors on the market is because we provide: 

- Better wages than competitors: $60/hour. 
- Opportunities to help change students lives. 
- Flexible work hours - you decide when, where, and how much you would like to work. 
- The opportunity to make $80/hour within 2 years. 
- Paid training.

Because Applerouth tutors are the best of the best, we expect applicants to have the following: 

-Excellent SAT and/or ACT scores. 
-Transportation. Many sessions will take place in the student's home, or in a mutually amenable location. 
-High Speed Internet. 
-Prior tutoring/teaching experience is a plus!
