Pacific Learning Academy Instructor Position

  • We are NOT able to hire candidates outside of easy driving distance to Sammamish (sorry!). While the COVID-19 situation means that location is less important at the moment, we will eventually get back to in-home or in-office instruction in the Issaquah and Sammamish area. Therefore, we are NOT able to consider applicants from outside the Eastside area or within a commute the applicant finds acceptable on a daily basis post-COVID.

  • Instructors at the Academy earn a base wage starting in the $25-27 range, DOE. On top of that we add a bonus for teaching credit classes. We pay for drive time (although currently that’s on hold due to COVID-19!) and we also pay a flat hourly administrative rate for initial prep, in-service training meetings, orientation, and for special projects (optional) that come up from time to time. An instructor starting at $25/hour would likely average out to $28-30 after drive time and credit class bonus amounts.
  • The commitment for this position is through the end of the school year (late June), although of course we would love to have you choose to stay with us for a 2nd or 3rd year Instructors commit to a full school year with the Academy, understanding that a mid-year departure is disruptive to the student, the family, and to the Academy's reputation. Please do NOT apply if you're not able to fully commit to a fixed weekly schedule or if you are not able to commit to the rest of the school year. Applications without both fields checked will not be considered.

    Select ALL that apply:
  • Due to the part-time nature of a 1-on-1 school, full-time work is not typical. Most instructors work between 4 and 20 hours per week. What is the minimum number of hours you're interested in long-term? Please choose the number of hours that would make this position worth pursuing for you (keeping in mind the commitment to the end of the year).
  • Academy instructors are currently meeting with their students virtually. You will need a computer with webcam/mic, an internet speed fast enough to handle Zoom lessons and space on your machine to record multiple lessons (you may move them to our cloud after recording). Data caps will inhibit or prevent you from working with Academy students.

    Please indicate your understanding that:
    * You will need to use your computer
    * You must have a webcam, mic, and the data and internet speeds necessary for Zoom lessons.
    * You understand that all lessons must be recorded and you will need enough hard drive space to record before moving files to the cloud.
  • Which hours and days are you available for lessons (assuming they are via Zoom only)? Please be specific.
  • I certify that the information contained in this application is correct.
