Return to Home Page

From time to time, we have been asked to let our members know of available paid positions.  Because the News Bulletin appears only quarterly, and employers usually need prompt action, we have been unable to help in the past.  The speed and simplicity of the Internet now permits a change in this practice.  We post all such opportunities on this page, and remove them promptly when we are notified that the position is no longer open or a year after the original posting. 

THESE LISTINGS ARE PUBLISHED AS A SERVICE TO OUR MEMBERS.
There is NO FEE for employers or applicants.
Job listings should be limited to about 15 lines so they can be completely displayed on a netbook or tablet screen.  See the format requirements here

LISTINGS APPEAR IN ORDER OF THEIR POSTING DATES.

Requests for volunteer help can be posted on either our 'Volunteer' or 'Other Opportunities' pages.  

PLEASE NOTE:  We have not investigated any of the listings shown. 
You’re on your own!

MATH TUTORING OPPORTUNITY
Are you looking for a unique opportunity? Do you want to make a difference in the lives of students across Chicago? Join SAGA Innovations!
See this page for a list of the Chicago sites we serve.
SAGA Innovations is dedicated to transforming American public education. SAGA drives the expansion of the nationally recognized innovation of high-dosage, intensive daily tutoring, where tutoring is a part of the regular school day for students as a scheduled class period. We partner with district public schools to provide students the opportunity to work with a qualified, engaging tutor who tailors instruction to the needs of two students at a time.

About the SAGA Fellowship:
The SAGA Fellows program is a 10 month,​ full time, in-school professional math tutoring opportunity. Fellows work with the same 14 students every day in groups of 1 tutor: 2 students. Unlike traditional, often disconnected, tutoring that happens outside of school hours, SAGA tutoring occurs as a stand-alone class period and is built into the regular school day as an elective course for credit. Fellows guarantee the academic success of students by focusing intently on individualizing instruction and building personal and meaningful relationships with their students.

If you are interested in working with SAGA Innovations, please apply today at www.sagainnovations.org. For more information or questions, feel free to contact Allison Hassing, SAGA Recruitment Manager, at ahassing@sagainnovations.org.

YOUNG REMBRANDTS ART INSTRUCTORS

Young Rembrandts Instructors have experience working with children as well as art experience.
Young Rembrandts teaches drawing classes to elementary age children as part of their school's after school enrichment programs. If you are available 1-3 afternoons each week to share your passion of art with our budding young artists, we'd love to talk to you. We provide the curriculum, and supplies.

We pay $22 per class taught and are currently looking to fill positions in these communities: Evanston, Skokie, Wilmette, Glenview, Morton Grove.

ABOUT FOREIGN EMPLOYMENT

When contemplating overseas employment, take the time to research the offer carefully.  Make certain of the financial condition of your prospective employer.

PERSONAL SAFETY.  The U. S. Department of State (http://www.state.gov/) publishes advice on Crisis Awareness and Preparedness, Travel Warnings, Emergencies Abroad, Passports, Visas and more.  Links are provided to the home pages of US Embassies and consulates throughout the world, offering the most up-to-date possible information on conditions at the location you’re considering.

SALARIES.  While salaries often appear very low when translated into American dollars, remember that foreign costs of living are also frequently low.  (For example, we are told that recently a Rangoon, Myanmar [Burma] pedicab driver who received a $100 tip bought a home with the money.)  On the Web, you can get an exchange rate quote on any currency at any time from http://www.exchangerate.com/.
