How high does one have to score in a section?W222 said:I know that you have to qualify to teach each section and you qualify by scoring high in that section. I got an email asking me to teach but have not heard back yet. You paid 20 bucks per hour and I think you get free classes and books (or they are super discounted).
Does TPR give you an outline to follow for each class or do you make your own? Do you do a lot of practice problems or a lot of lecture (probably depends on the class)?arsenalgunner said:I teach Bio, G Chem, & Verbal for PR. It's $20/hr ($50 per class), but you get raises after your first class based on student evals. You generally need an 11 in any section you wish to teach (but if the people in the office like you or think you'll be a good teacher you can get away with a 10). If you don't have 11 or above in any section, you can teach for Kaplan with a 10.
If you want to teach, they'll bring you in for an audition where you teach a subject of your choice for 5 minutes. I personally chose pimping, something I was familiar with. If you pass audition, you go into training for 1 weekend where you get paid minimum wage. At the end of training you have to give a lesson to your trainer & if you do well, you will be certified.
I would definitely suggest teaching for TPR while in medical school. Almost all of the teachers I know are in med school right now. The money's good & it's really only the 1st time you teach a given subject that it requires a significant amount of your time. After that, I've already made myself notes, so I glance at them for 5 minutes before class starts & then I'm ready to go. Hope this helps...
