Job Description
Primarily, we provide itinerant services to school districts in Nassau and Suffolk. Therefore, traveling is a part of the job. Teachers are not paid for travel time. Typically, a student gets 2 hours of tutoring per week for each subject. You are not necessarily limited to the subject area in which you are certified, depending upon policies of the district and needs of the student. Teachers are not obligated to take any position offered and are employed on an “on call” or “as needed basis”. You may set your own hours (within limits) and take only the amount of work you are comfortable with. All are employees of Top Grade and will receive a W-2 form for each year.

Since work is based upon demand, there may be no work for you when you apply. Upon acceptance of your application, you will be placed on our roster and called when the need arises. The work load could be anywhere between 2 - 40 hours per week. The rate of pay is $25 - $35 per hour depending upon the district and position. Other positions such as teaching small groups, private tutoring and business training programs may pay as much as $50 per hour. Payment is made monthly – checks are sent out on the 2nd Friday of the following month for work done in the previous month.


  1. All applicants must be fingerprinted and cleared by either the NYC Board of Education or NYSED’s Project SAVE program.
  2. Teachers must be certified in NYS (or in a state that has reciprocity with New York) or have pending certifications. Prospective teachers completing collegiate study toward certification of not less than 6 semester hours per year may apply.
  3. You will be asked to provide copy (copies) of certification(s) after we review your application.

Any teacher that earns over $5000 per year may participate in our SIMPLE IRA plan. A participant can put money away, tax deferred, and also receive a matching contribution up to a set percentage.
