Can I get a job at a test prep center?

<p>This past may, I did very well on the SATs and I also enjoy teaching and I thought that getting a job at a test prep center (ie kaplan) would be a great idea. However, do these types of places even allow high schoolers to teach prep courses? even individual tutoring? Ive been looking around their websites and very few can provide me a solid answer one way or another.</p>

<p>So do any of you know the answer? Anyone know of any places that allow high schoolers to teach SAT courses/tutor?</p>

<p>BTW, im a junior, 16.</p>

<p>probably not kaplan but maybe a privately run tutoring company</p>

<p>anyone know of any specific companies out there?</p>

<p>I am wondering about the same thing. I worked with Kaplan and received a very high SAT score, so I'm actually going to call the person and see if I can work there after school ends (in like 2 days). I'll let you know how it goes.</p>

<p>I called Kaplan and they want someone with a college degree.</p>

<p>A few of my classmates have worked at Kumon or places like that to tutor people. Either that or start your own mini tutoring business through your school (i.e. sending out fliers and stuff with your scores and rates).</p>

<p>lol what about me? i have a few 800s on SATIIs and a 2300 (is that high?)</p>

<p>^no, that is not high. you sir, are a failure.</p>

<p><em>cries in a corner</em></p>

<p>try testmasters!</p>

<p>I have a friend who works at Kumon, but he's been taking their advancement courses for a good amount of years.</p>

<p>i have a friend who works at kumon, she just grades addition and subtraction papers</p>

<p>not exactly what im looking for,
you see, i studied really really hard for my SATs and I believe along the way I have picked up valuable strategies for the SAT and I very much have my heart set on teaching something that has some value.</p>

<p>you just have to be within the 90th percentile, so a 2300 should be fine</p>

<p>^lol the math major@caltech/genius who got a 790 in math</p>

<p>^lol the math major@caltech/genius who got a 790 in math how ironic :D</p>

<p>What's wrong with a 790??!! I would be so happy to get anwhere near a 700 on the math SAT (I am really bad at math though lol, so probably not the norm for CCers).</p>

<p>lol just saying :)</p>

<p>So I interviewed with Kaplan on Wednesday and they still haven't called me back, so I assume it's a rejection :(</p>

<p>I'm a college freshman who dropped out of high school (and had really good credentials for a college freshman, but no real teaching experience).
I assume it'd be harder for a normal high school student.</p>

<p>I had my interview with Kaplan today (I'm a graduating H.S senior). The director accepted me for training and I'm starting that next month probably. He told me I was the youngest guy who's gotten this far, haha...</p>
