Do You Have What It Takes to Be a WriteAtHome Writing Coach?
We are looking for talented people with experience as teachers, writers, and/or editors to work with WriteAtHome students. They must be positive, encouraging people with an interest in helping young people. They must be strong writers. They must be knowledgeable not only about conventions like grammar, usage, and punctuation, but also an ear for the aesthetics of good writing. They must be capable of addressing the content, as well as the style and mechanics of student papers.
WriteAtHome writing coaches are independent contractors who are responsible for a fixed number of students (based on the coach's request, but sometimes limited by availability). Coaches work on their own schedule, but must return papers promptly by a weekly deadline and will be expected to communicate responsibly with their students. Coaches must have access to an internet-connected computer, but no other equipment is necessary.
Coaches bill WriteAtHome monthly and are compensated on a per-paper basis.
Writing coaches must reside in the United States.
