From time to time, we have been asked to let our members know of available paid positions.  Because the News Bulletin appears only quarterly, and employers usually need prompt action, we have been unable to help in the past.  The speed and simplicity of the Internet now permits a change in this practice.  We post all such opportunities on this page, and remove them promptly when we are notified that the position is no longer open or a year after the original posting. 

THESE LISTINGS ARE PUBLISHED AS A SERVICE TO OUR MEMBERS.
There is NO FEE for employers or applicants.
Job listings should be limited to about 15 lines so they can be completely displayed on a netbook or tablet screen.  See the format requirements here

LISTINGS APPEAR IN ORDER OF THEIR POSTING DATES.

TUTORS FOR CPS STUDENTS
SAGA Innovations is dedicated to transforming American public education. SAGA drives the expansion of the nationally recognized innovation of high-dosage, intensive daily tutoring, where tutoring is a part of the regular school day for students as a scheduled class period. We partner with Chicago Public Schools to provide students the opportunity to work with a qualified, engaging tutor, or “Fellow,” who guarantees the academic success of students by focusing intently on individualizing instruction and building personal and meaningful relationships with their students.
Who You Are:
During your service year with SAGA in Chicago Public Schools, you will work with the same 14 students every day in groups of 1 tutor: 2 students. SAGA tutoring occurs as a stand-alone class period and is built into the regular school day as an elective course for credit. Professional development and personal growth are key to this program; fellows must be hungry for feedback. It’s ideal that you have:
• Bachelor’s degree required (ALL majors accepted; an education major or minor is NOT required).
• Strong basic high school math skills—you will take a math test as one step in landing this position.
• Passion for education reform and hunger for feedback.
• Prior paid or volunteer experience with students is helpful.

HELP CREATE A TOOL FOR NON-NATIVE SPEAKERS TO MASTER ENGLISH
Are you ready to start a new endeavor to create an innovative online tool to help millions of foreign students better learn and use English? Are you prepared to leave a lasting legacy to enable many people overseas to improve their lives by mastering English?
You may be ready, if you know the difference between the words “ready” and “prepared”. Or you may be prepared, if you know the relationship between the words “fluid” and “liquid”.
For some native speakers and most non-native speakers, including myself, the questions above about “ready” and “prepared, and “fluid” and “liquid” are difficult. But why? I don’t think those questions should be hard, if we have learned English properly by using my new online tool.
You will be one of the editors to craft something unique out of your own talent by following our patent-pending editorial process. As an independent contractor, you will work at your own pace in the comfort of your home. In return, you will be compensated and credited for your work, if it meets our strict quality standards.
What is more important is that you will receive profit sharing and equity shares in the company based on your contributions. Those two can amount to a great financial reward for the long term.
So come and join us to develop this breakthrough tool to help countless English language learners overseas master English to improve their lives.

ABOUT FOREIGN EMPLOYMENT

When contemplating overseas employment, take the time to research the offer carefully.  Make certain of the financial condition of your prospective employer.

PERSONAL SAFETY.  The U. S. Department of State (http://www.state.gov/) publishes advice on Crisis Awareness and Preparedness, Travel Warnings, Emergencies Abroad, Passports, Visas and more.  Links are provided to the home pages of US Embassies and consulates throughout the world, offering the most up-to-date possible information on conditions at the location you’re considering.

SALARIES.  While salaries often appear very low when translated into American dollars, remember that foreign costs of living are also frequently low.  (For example, we are told that recently a Rangoon, Myanmar [Burma] pedicab driver who received a $100 tip bought a home with the money.)  On the Web, you can get an exchange rate quote on any currency at any time from http://www.exchangerate.com/.
