Job Description:

The Saturday Writing Classes are a core component of Legal Outreach’s College Bound, a rigorous academic program that prepares students for competitive colleges and universities. We are seeking grammar and writing instructors with experience teaching at the high school and/or college levels who can set high expectations for and inspire underserved youths.

This is an excellent opportunity to join a team of dedicated writing staff and make a difference in the lives of New York City youths.

Candidates should not apply if they cannot commit to teaching on all of these dates. 

• Teach one class in the Saturday Writing Program from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (meets every other Saturday). Those hours will generally include teaching to a group of 12 to 14 students. There will also be paid staff meetings with the Director, either before or after class.

• There are four to five classes per grade (some of these will be taught by returning instructors).

• Effectively implement a comprehensive writing curriculum in the classroom. 

• Provide formal, edited feedback on essays throughout the year following a rubric (sophomore and junior instructors).

• Provide end-of-the year evaluations of students’ progress. The final paycheck for the year will be issued after completion of all evaluations and grading.
