    I found out yesterday evening that I got accepted to be a Kaplan instructor for the MCAT (and SAT). I'm so excited!! I've wanted to be a Kaplan teacher for so long! I've taken so many Kaplan courses, for PSAT, SAT, and MCAT... it will be so cool to have them pay ME now!

    So I guess I can't give out advice on what materials to use anymore... since I'll be biased. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    I did some really really simple origami thing... basically folding a piece of paper into a nifty little envolope. You only get 5-7 minutes, I didn't dare try anything remotely complicated. I was really surprised I got the job... the other auditioners were way more dinamic and funny.

    That is probably where I'll be teaching too. I'm more in the Cleveland area, but Akron is not too much of a stretch, especially since they pay 32 cents a mile for anything over 15 miles from your home. It's funny, but a 1st year med student who auditioned with me today did the origami envelope thing. My gig was "basic techniques of the game of pool". What sections will you be teaching? I guess I'll be training for verbal and\or bio.

    i just got a position yesterday too.
    on my audition - i did the history of kimbop and how to make it. it's a korean delicacy!

    anyways- the pays is $15/hr your first class plus $7/hr for the prep time it takes before each class- but they tell you how long prep time should be.

    after your 1st class it's $18/hr.

    i forgot to ask about the private tutoring- but i wonder if you get more???

    also any princeton review teachers?? what did you guys make?? i haven't decided yet to take the position or not- but i have a week and maybe there's something that pays 20.

    Octupus: Well, since the MCAT will be over by sept. when I start, I plan in teaching SAT until Dec. or Jan... or whenever the MCAT classes start. For the MCAT I'll most likely be teaching verbal and PS... I don't think they'd let me go near the Bio classes :)
