Summer / Fall *OBERLIN MUSIC TUTORS* - $20-$60+/hour

Part-time SUMMER / FALL 2015 MUSIC TUTORS needed for all K-12 music-related subjects and age-levels in (and around) the greater OBERLIN area – multiple tutoring locations available near the Oberlin campus, so no long commutes will ever be required. Currently our company has an immediate need for tutors who are able to work right away during the busy late-Summer / Fall months of 2015, and also beyond. We need tutors NOW as the amount of "Tutoring Requests" we've been receiving from parents/students has increased substantially in the last few weeks. This increase in “Tutoring Requests” is due to students requiring more homework support and additional all-around tutoring as their fast-paced 'Summer School' courses come to an end and the Fall semester gets underway...

As a tutor you’ll be able to pick and choose which local students that you'd like to work with. Additionally tutors get to set their own hours, and their own weekly tutoring schedules.

Currently we have an immediate need for local tutors who can work part-time roughly 2-10 hours per week. All tutoring is conducted one-on-one at a neutral location such as a library, on campus, or a nearby coffee shop. Coffee shops seem to be the most popular tutoring locations for both students and tutors alike.

Prior tutoring experience, though helpful, is NOT required to be a busy and successful tutor. Even “rookie tutors” will have full tutoring schedules. As stated previously, tutors must be able to meet their students (tutees) at a local place in common (library, coffee shop, campus, etc) where the tutoring takes place. NO long commutes are ever required and if the tutoring location is close, possessing a car is not necessary.

If you are interested in tutoring music right away during the Summer and/or Fall months of 2015 (and even beyond), please send an email inquiry to:


NOTE – You may want to ALSO email us from your "non.edu" email address (i.e. your "gmail" or "yahoo" account), as we are an OFF-CAMPUS employer. Thanks...
