Become a Paper tutor

Gain professional experience and hone your subject matter expertise—all while contributing to a mission of educational equity.

Paper works with schools to close the equity gap between students who can and cannot afford tutoring. 

We are actively seeking tutors across Canada and the US to join our diverse team of experts to help students across STEM and Humanities subjects, in languages such as English, Spanish, French, and Mandarin.

“Paper's Socratic pedagogy aligns with my priorities as a teacher. I have loved working with students on skills and comprehension, helping them become better learners and better writers beyond any single assignment. As a Paper tutor, I was able to work around my grad school schedule, and tutoring set me up for a promotion to a full time position after I graduated.”

— Margaret Cormier, former Paper tutor, current Tutor Success Manager

Why do tutors choose Paper?

Paper sets you up for success. While you’re helping students with their classwork, we’ll be hard at work fostering an environment in which you have opportunities for fun, collaboration, and professional growth.

Flexible hours

You can choose to tutor between 10 to 40 hours per week, around the clock! We work with your schedule so there are no surprises—you only work hours that work for you.

Stability

Paper tutors are permanent employees, not independent contractors, enjoying more income stability. Tutors can also earn more as they gain experience.

Support

You'll get extensive training to help students succeed, chances to collaborate with fellow tutors, and ongoing mentorship from a dedicated tutor success team.


How it works

Paper tutors use the Socratic method to provide homework help, study support, and writing feedback across subjects and in various languages through our 24/7, chat-based tutoring platform. As a tutor, you'll:

  • Manage 1:1 tutoring sessions simultaneously with multiple students in your area of expertise.
  • Enhance student confidence and interest, adapting to individual learning needs and styles.
  • Contribute to the tutor team by offering your knowledge and support to peers.
  • Conduct pedagogical assessments and provide feedback to teachers and students.
