All faculty members are required to post at least 8 hours of availability within prime-time hours on Saturdays or Sundays during the school year; it is recommended that tutors provide some weekend availability over the summer. Weekly availability should be consistent for several months into the future.

Tutors choose a delivery target between 16 and 40 hours per week and post recommended availability in order to reach their target. Benefits (including the possibility of a salaried option after a positive six-month performance review) are available for tutors with a delivery target of 28 hours per week or higher. The number of hours of availability posted does not necessarily equate to the actual number of paid hours worked but improves your ability to receive new student assignments. Actual hours worked are highly dependent on tutor's proactivity with families, individual subject coverage, quality of instruction, and tutor-selected availability. Hours also fluctuate based on sales volume and seasonality. The bulk of our tutors work anywhere from 20-35+ per week.
Revolution Prep will provide a webcam, headset, and an annotation tablet to support you in providing our standard of quality for online instruction.
