LONG-TERM Tutor - Accounting, Finance, Business, Economics, Statistics
Hi. This is for a long-term, ongoing position for live, text-based (chat style with no voice or audio) tutoring. The range of hours will be from 8-19 a week, with an average of say 10 (but we can try to get you some more hours if you are able to take them). You will be paid even if students do not need to be tutored. In other words, you are paid for being there.
For your bid, please make a fixed price offer for 10 hours of work. This is how I will compare offers, in addition to your application information. You can wait to make a dollar value offer, since if you message me and I like your application, I will send you more details so you can better understand the job.
This is largely for an accounting tutor, but there can also be finance, economics, and statistics subjects covered if you are able. The more subjects you can cover, the better.
Topics for Introductory Accounting may include, but are not limited to:
- Bond valuation using different amortization methods
- Cost Volume Profit Analysis
- Calculating Variances
- ABC, process, job costing
- Adjusting entries
- Financial Statements
- Equivalent Units of Production
- Debits and Credits
A few questions you may want to ask yourself before deciding if this type of position suits you: (1) Is my accounting knowledge current and equally strong in all the areas I have expressed interest in being screened? (2) Am I prepared to quickly and accurately respond to nearly any type of accounting question? (3) Do I have access to credible reference material (expert in Internet searches, accounting textbooks, etc.)? Past candidates tell me they are used to having a lesson, preparing for the topic in advance, and possessing the correct answers.
You will not know what questions will be asked in advance nor will you have solution manuals to accompany questions from students. It's quick thinking on a moment's notice (often jumping from one topic to a different/unrelated topic) and creative responses to get the student engaged and learning.
IMPORTANT HERE! NOTE THE HOURS!
There are several tutoring "windows," but most are around Sunday - Thursday 9 PM - 1 AM EST. Note the EST! Convert to your time! Sunday has a high need. There are other possible windows, but they are all denoted in EST. I will share more possible windows if I like your application.
Thanks for your time!
