Individual Course Instructor

We regularly seek instructors for the Art of Problem Solving Online School. Most courses are 12-18 weeks in length, which include 75–120 minutes of live (online) instruction one day per week, generally starting at 7:30 PM Eastern Time. Instructors will also be expected to spend sufficient time to prepare for each week's class (a detailed curriculum for each class will be provided), to participate in message board discussions during the week between classes, to review students' graded homework assignments, and to provide recommendations or written evaluations of students upon request. We expect that a typical instructor will spend about 2-4 hours per week outside of class time performing these other duties.

Individual course instructors for our online school are contracted on a course-by-course basis, and the work can be performed from anywhere. Reliability is essential: instructors must ensure that they are available and have access to a stable internet connection during class times, and non-class-time tasks must be completed in a punctual manner.

We seek only instructors of the highest caliber. Successful applicants will have most or all of:

  • An advanced degree in mathematics or a related field.
  • Significant experience with K-12 math education and curriculum development.
  • A strong background in mathematics competitions (either as a student or as a teacher), with demonstrated success at the national or international level.

This can be done from anywhere, and if selected you may work as many or as few hours per week as you would like.
