$30-$50 per hour. SAT Teacher, Writing Teacher and College Admissions Counselor needed in Hanoi, Vietnam

Posted By: IVYcation <>
Date: Tuesday, 8 July 2014, at 2:06 p.m.


My name is Mark and Iím a teacher/tutor for a college admissions counselling business in Hanoi, Vietnam, offering guidance for high school students hoping to attend prestigious American Universities. I have been asked to help them hire new teacher/tutors. They are a small business with only a few employees run by a director who is a Stanford Graduate, and they are willing to pay their employees well beyond the industry standard. They also pay travel and visa expenses. This is a great, low-stress job, perfect for instructors who are able to work independently and to develop their own curriculum. Although the majority of work tends to be 1-on-1, instructors will also be responsible for one or two group classes, so they must be able to design and implement their own curriculum in the field in which they are hired. These students are some of the best in Vietnam, mostly planning on going to top tier colleges in the United States, and there are none of the behavioral problems you might find in other schools. The school will guarantee 20 teaching/tutoring hours per week, although there will likely be plenty of opportunity for overtime.
Here are the positions we need to fill.

SAT instructor:
The SAT instructor will only need to be responsible for the Critical Reading and Writing section, although he/she could also handle math if qualified. We could hire someone without a lot of direct SAT experience if he/she has a graduate degree and experience teaching writing and literature courses. There is already one SAT instructor (me) so I would be available to provide some training.

This position will pay between $30 and $50 per hour with a 30 hour per week minimum number of working hours. Candidates who get paid on the higher end must have a verifiable ability to score extremely well on the test (many of our students start above 2200 and end above 2300) as well as extensive SAT training experience. Once they start working, employees will also have opportunities to increase their salary.

Writing Instructor:
The writing teacher will teaching writing courses and work with students one on one. Specifically, they will work very closely with individual students planning all stages of their application essays. A successful candidate must have a graduate degree in a related field and experience teaching high school or university writing courses. This is not an ESL position.
A successful candidate will get paid between $30 and $40 per hour. To get paid on the higher end, you would need a graduate degree and extensive experience working as a writing teacher under a United States curriculum. This experience could be either at the high school or college level.

College Admissions Counselor:
This position requires extensive experience in a similar position. A successful candidate will be paid between $30 and $40 per hour.

Required skills and qualifications:
1. Relevant degree from a United States University. Masterís or PhD degree preferred, and graduate teaching work would be looked upon favorably. Someone with a BA degree would have to have several years of employment specific to the position.

2. Prior teaching experience or teaching qualification.

3. Teachers must be able to develop their own curriculum and find their own course materials.

The school would prefer a long-term contract, but would settle for a short-term contract for the proper candidate.

To apply:

Send resume and cover letter to Your cover letter should be in the body of the e-mail and should detail your relevant experience.

Resumes without cover letters will not be opened.

Qualified candidates will be interviewed via Skype.

We can only reply to short-listed candidates.
