Join Our Team
At Global Academy, we pride ourselves on hiring some of the best and brightest minds to work for us as tutors. Not only are they highly skilled and experienced in their subject matter, but each one has that special passion and love for the profession of teaching. This enables the tutor to use his/her own special teaching skills to discover the best way to reach each student, and assure each student’s academic success.
All of our tutors here at Global Academy are highly qualified with a minimum of three years teaching experience, at least a bachelor’s degree or higher in their given subject of expertise. Each tutor must also be computer savvy and able to learn the computer software that is used in our tutoring program. It is mandatory for all of our tutors to complete a thorough background check before we will hire them.
Have Love and Passion for Teaching
We require at least two references from a previous teaching job, and we look for candidates who have a love and passion for teaching and who receive genuine enjoyment from helping others to learn. We want tutors who are personable, dedicated and loyal, who can and will devote the time and energy to the task at hand. Once we place a student with tutors, we expect the tutors to stay with that student for the long haul. We encourage a trusting and open relationship between the tutors and students, which we believe is the foundation for an environment where true learning can take place.
Understands the Student’s Academic Needs and Objectives
We ask that our tutors be responsible for understanding the student’s academic needs and objectives and have the willingness to develop a trusting and loyal relationship with the student in order to have input in the development of an academic plan for each student based on this relationship. We ask our tutors to take the time on a daily basis to read and respond to all communications from Global Academy. Providing feedback and progress reports to the Education Co-ordinator also a responsibility of his position. The tutor must be available to communicate via the Education Co-ordinator with the child’s parents and be responsible for updating the Parent Forum on our website on needed bases. Most importantly it is the tutors’ main responsibility to provide high quality tutoring at all times using the textbook and software provided and his or her own skills and experience to each and every student.
Trained by our Global Academy Software
Each of our tutors receives training in our Global Academy software as well as training for individual one on one tutoring and training for tutoring in a school based setting, where there will be more than one student. This is rigorous training that all of our tutors must complete before they will actually start tutoring. They also receive training in curriculum development, and filling out various forms. All tutoring sessions are recorded and checked by our Education Directors on a regular basis as a means of improvement as well as on going training. You can be completely assured that any tutor who works with your child is professional, devoted and qualified to raise your child’s grades in any given subject. In addition to the intensive training they must complete to become a Global academy’s educator, they undergo periodic training on Global Academy’s curriculum development
