Open English is searching for native English speakers to provide academic services for beginner to advanced students from the comfort of their own home, or in our Miami office. Our Academic Specialists enjoy a flexible work schedule and impact student success on a daily basis by leading group classes and private classes, and by providing feedback and curriculum support to the Company.
Academic Specialists must provide ten (10) hours minimum of availability each week (including 5 peak time hours). Academic support is needed 7 days a week, 24 hours each day, meaning that a variety of availabilities can be accommodated. Academic Specialists submit their own master schedule and must maintain the same availability week-to-week.
