There are semester bonuses available based on performance.

Compensation: 

$25 - $45 per hour, depending on experience, semester bonuses available

Aspire Education Project is seeking experienced, emotionally intelligent, and highly resourceful tutors interested in working one‐on‐one and classroom settings. We tutor K-12 students in homes, schools, and non-profit programs in Lafayette, Oakland, Berkeley, and other parts of the East Bay. After school and evening hours preferred; our high-demand hours are from 3-6pm on weekdays.

Please note that while tutoring will take place remotely for the time being, it will be necessary to be available in person once it is safe to do so.


Candidates will demonstrate:

  • Outstanding communication. They must be able to connect with students both in one-on-one and group settings. They can effectively communicate with Aspire admin staff, as well as with parents and other educational professionals
  • Social and emotional literacy. An Aspire tutor listens and connects to students, holds them accountable, and empowers those who struggle with motivation, content gaps, study skills, and learning differences.
  • Expertise in at least one subject area:
  • Mathematics (Geometry, Algebra 2, Math Analysis / Pre‐Calculus, Trigonometry, Calculus)
  • Sciences (Chemistry, Physics, Biology)
  • Humanities (English/Language Arts/Writing)
  • Spanish or another Foreign Language
  • ACT/SAT exam prep
  • One year of tutoring and/or teaching experience in a professional setting, minimum
  • The ability to work smoothly and communicate effectively with the Aspire admin team
  • A desire to work for a mission-driven organization dedicated to educational equity 


Some availability during the school day and some hours on weekends are necessary--the more flexible your availability is, the more hours. You will start at around 4 hours per week and build up over 1-2 months to your preferred availability. Should you reach 30 hours, you will become eligible for healthcare and other benefits. 


To apply, email a cover letter, resume, and a list of subjects you tutor.


Who is Aspire?

Aspire Education Project is a Bay Area nonprofit organization dedicated to combating

educational inequity across the Bay Area. We do this through three branches in our organization:

  • One-on-one private tutoring in academic subjects
  • Partnerships with schools and other non-profits for academic workshops, test prep, and other support classes
  • Community Reading Buddies: a summer early literacy support program for preschool students in Oakland

Our Aspire model is unique: we work with students across the income spectrum to deliver the

educational resources they need. Income from our market rate services goes back into our

scholarship fund and partnerships to serve low-income students.
