City-Wide Director of Tutoring (work from home) in Dallas Fort Worth

Position: Full-time position(s) available

Varsity Tutors, a premier private tutoring and test prep service, is seeking a talented full-time City-Wide Director of Tutoring to join our team. We’re one of the fastest growing companies in education and we’re looking for a half-dozen of the most talented people in for-profit tutoring in the country to join our team and help us continue our national expansion. The City-Wide Director of Tutoring will report to the Regional Director and CEO and will work closely with them to continue the growth and expansion of national operations. We expanded from 5 to 10 cities last summer and hope to keep up the growth pace this summer which will necessitate significantly building out the team with the addition of new, talented City-Wide Directors. Our Directors manage our tutor base, sell to new clients, and ensure our existing clients receive outstanding tutoring services. We provide a highly effective service and Directors take pride in knowing that the quality of the tutoring they oversee is exceptional.

Varsity Tutors is a quickly growing, entrepreneurial company so the ideal Director will enjoy working in a fun, competitive, fast paced work environment and value the independence that comes with working from home. We prefer Director candidates who have performed a similar role before and have managed tutoring centers or tutoring regions for out-of-pocket, private-pay tutoring companies but are open to applicants who have the communication skills, energy and enthusiasm to be outstanding directors. We expect our Directors to work hard and thrive on the independence we give them.

City-Wide Directors will receive a competitive salary, bonuses, healthcare, $1500 technology allowance (for a laptop, iPhone, scanner, iPad, etc), 50 free hours of tutoring per year (Want to learn Italian before that upcoming trip to Italy? Use one of our talented Italian tutors for free) and a group of passionate colleagues with whom they will work to scale Varsity Tutors nationally.

Due to the time of the year, we need to devote our phones to clients seeking tutoring so please do not call regarding the position. We will reach out if there is a fit. We genuinely appreciate your interest in Varsity Tutors.
