Multisensory Math Tutor - Level 1

Does this equation describe you?

Math (Techie + Creative + Fun)² (Procedure Heavy Teaching) = Multisensory Math Tutor


Math for Middles wants to hire you as a remote, part-time Multisensory Math Tutor.

At Math for Middles, we help students with learning differences such as dyslexia, autism, and ADHD learn math with a hands-on experience minus rote memorization and procedures. We’re a team of 10: Adrianne Meldrum (that’s me), 1 educational therapist, and 8 multisensory math tutors.

I’m looking to hire a Multisensory Math Tutor as soon as possible to help support Math for Middles growing list of students.

First, a little about Math for Middles

I’m Adrianne, the founder. Between 2006 and 2015, I tutored math independently where I helped middle and high school students achieve grades they were proud of. At the time, it was great but there were always just a few students that my methods just didn’t reach. I discovered after studying dyslexia that many of those students that didn’t do well with the procedure of math also fit the description of dyslexia. I had a choice to make, either filter out those students or get training so I know how to help.

In 2015, I went all-in on the math and dyslexia tie. The training is slim pickings but I found a wonderful mentor in Marilyn Zecher, creator of the Marilyn Zecher’s Multisensory Math Method. She is a certified language therapist and has spent her career studying math research and applying what she knows about teaching a child to read to math. I fell in love with her method because it worked for those students that were hard to reach.

I decided to expand beyond just myself and began hiring more people to work with me to serve these different learners. Now in 2019, we’ve tripled our student load and we offer classes to homeschool parents. Our goal is to add a grade level of math each year.

Our students are referring their friends, people find us through different pieces of training or webinars we’ve done, and we’re maxed out! We need more people who are willing to learn the multisensory math method so we can continue to serve these students. Let’s find out if you’re a good fit.

The Multisensory Math Tutor position might be for you if…

You’re a research and pedagogy nerd. You really love to read research papers or read education books and happily apply what you’re learning to your students. Sometimes at social functions, you say, “You know what the research says about that?” drawing glazed looks from your friends and family.

+ You’re meticulous and probably a bit of a perfectionist.

+ You seek software and tech to automate a lot of your busy work.

+ You love the puzzle of a student who doesn’t seem to learn like anyone else.

+ You see a problem in a system in the workplace and have a dozen ideas on how to make it better.

+ You’re willing to quickly learn new ways of teaching and are willing to be uncomfortable as you learn new techniques.

+ You are quick to communicate via text and email. Even willing to get on a phone call if needed.

+ You like the idea of learning new software, as well as jumping in and finding the answer independently (aka…you know how to Google something).

Bonus points if…

  • You are trained by Marilyn Zecher in MSM 1 or 2
  • You’ve tutored students in the past
  • You’ve worked online with students
  • You have strong math skills in Algebra 1 and 2
  • You’re funny! We use a lot of humor to defuse anxiety

Again, those are just bonuses…not requirements.

Availability

This is a 15 – 20 hour per week position.

We do work with students in all different time zones, but most often you’ll find yourself working with students Monday – Thursday 2:00 pm – 8:00 pm. This time might differ depending on where you’re living.

Staff meetings are typically held twice a month on Saturdays for an hour.

Important note about working: this is not the kind of job where you can have little kids running in/out of your sessions. It will require chunks of 2 – 3 hours of uninterrupted time, so even though it’s remote – this does not mean you can do the work whenever.

You’ll need to wear brightly colored t-shirts and have a kept appearance as students WILL be seeing you. They’ll be able to tell if you just rolled out of bed!

This is a W-2 Position

I’m not looking to hire a contractor. This person will be paid monthly via payroll direct deposit. I’ll supply webcams, lights, and any other software needed to do the job.

You’ll be an hourly employee, and compensation will depend on experience.

You MUST live in Idaho, Ohio, Texas, or Utah.

I’m not interested in hiring in other states at this time. So if you don’t live in Idaho, Ohio, Texas, or Utah – please don’t send me an email to ask me to consider you anyways. I will delete your email.

What you’ll be doing…

As a multisensory math tutor, you’ll first start out with training virtually with me, using Marilyn Zecher’s method. The training can take about 2 months which will involve you attending other tutors’ sessions and running part of a session.

Once I determine if you’re ready, you’ll start to receive new students.

You’ll be lesson planning using a prescribed lesson plan format for your new students. Writing lesson plans is more time-consuming in the beginning but does lessen over time.

We use three pieces of software primarily: Zoom.us (video conferencing software), Bitpaper (whiteboard software) and BrainingCamp (digital maniupulatives).

After each session, you’ll be doing administrative tasks such as:

+ Sending an email to parents to share what was covered
+ Upload the session recording to our student portal
+ Supporting students with homework problems outside of tutor sessions (using software called Loom)

I will (of course) train you in all aspects of the job. We’ll work closely to make sure you gain confidence and competence in each area of your responsibility.

You should apply for this job if you love to learn. Especially if you are willing to challenge all that you thought to be true about teaching math and embrace that this method does a lot of great things for students.

Multisensory math is appropriate for ALL learners but is essential for some.

How to apply

Please send an email to adrianne@mathformiddles.com and include “Math (Techie + Creative + Fun)²” in the subject line.

Write a short note that helps me get to know you and why you’re a good fit for this position.  Include your resume as well.

(HINT: When you write your note, please remember that I’m human, not an HR department or piece of software. No one on my team refers to me as “madam” or “Mrs. Meldrum” or heaven forbid to “whom it may concern.”)

Please make a YouTube video telling us about you, why you want to work at Math for Middles and SELL us on why you’re awesome. Show us your skills by doing a short lesson on how to combine like terms using the CRA method.

If you don’t know what that is, please do a search on our website to learn more and apply what you’ve learned. We won’t respond to anyone who doesn’t post a YouTube video. (You can make the video “Unlisted” so only we know about it, but please don’t make it “Private” or we won’t be able to see it.) *

Your ability to follow these directions above are KEY to geting an interview with us.

Hiring timeline

I’d like to fill the position as soon as possible, but I’m not in a rush.

When you apply, I’ll acknowledge your application within 48 hours. If you don’t hear from me, wait 24 more hours and then send it again.

Thanks in advance for applying!

+ Reading and interpreting the data
+ Upload the assessment recording to our student portal
