The first thing we look for is teaching experience, a rigorous education, and an impressive record of professional and academic achievement.
During our video interview, we ask candidates to teach us a lesson on the fly and to explain how they would handle tough tutoring situations. This gives our team a chance to evaluate a tutor’s professionalism, teaching abilities and subject expertise.
We run a background check on every tutor as part of our commitment to the highest standards of quality and safety. Read more about our background checks here.
Finally, all remaining candidates are reviewed by team members on our internal rating system to ensure that they've consistently met our rigorous standards of excellence.
Out of every 100 applicants, fewer than 4 earn the right to call themselves a Smart Alec.
