You’ve worked with high-performing students before, or you were an avid participant in math camps and math contests back when you were a student.

    Grader/Teaching Assistant

    Do you want flexible work that allows you to share your love of math with younger students? Our graders log in whenever they want and provide feedback on homework problems to aspiring mathematicians. The grader position is perfect for those who need or want flexibility in their work but still want to have a meaningful impact on the lives of others. Want a more active role? Teaching assistants answer questions and encourage students during live class sessions. Both roles are vital to the success of our students and contribute to their growing love of math.

    Our grader/assistant pool includes college students, stay-at-home parents, retired professors, graduate students, high school teachers, business analysts, chemists, and many others who just love math! Our courses range from Prealgebra up through Calculus, Intermediate Number Theory and Olympiad level Geometry, so if you have enthusiasm for math of any level, there is a course for you to help out in!

    Online grader and teaching assistant applications open a few times per year. To apply or receive notifications when applications open click here. If you have any questions, please email school-staff@aops.com.
