Do you love to teach? Do you have experience in a subject that might benefit the families in this community? Now hiring tutors! The ideal tutor will be:

  • A parent of a student in the community
  • A “retired” homeschool parent
  • A grandparent of a student in the community

Perhaps you don’t fit any of the above descriptions, but you are still interested in the position. We will consider others, depending on experience.

All tutors will need to sign a Statement of Faith, as this is a Christian community. Background checks will be run on all tutors prior to the start of classes, and each tutor will need to provide three references.

Teaching degrees will not be required. We recognize that people gain education in a variety of ways, and we will interview each tutor to make sure that we provide qualified (though not necessarily credentialed) tutors for the community.

Note that tutors will be official employees of STAR Homeschool, not independent contractors. This means that taxes and other required withholdings will be done by STAR Homeschool for each paycheck. This is good news for tutors, because part of the withholdings owe will be covered by STAR (as required by law), and they won’t need to claim their STAR paychecks as untaxed income on their taxes.

Payments will be made four times per school year (at the end of every seven week term).
