Upswing exists to empower the historically marginalized to overcome systemic personal or educational obstacles to achieve their life goals.
Upswing partners with educational institutions (primarily college-level) to connect their students to educational and personal resources through technology and services - including online tutoring!
Upswing's tutoring philosophy stresses the importance of fostering independence. To succeed in this role, you must be familiar with tutoring via the Socratic method and love working with students to develop critical thinking skills. Online sessions take place via Upswing's virtual classroom and offer video, audio, and chatbox in addition to a whiteboard.
We are looking for writing tutors, graduates with a degree in English/writing, or writing professionals to help with our synchronous writing services.
This writing service consists of writing essay reviews that fall in line with Upswing's tutoring philosophy of helping students become better writers, as well as the ability to meet synchronously with students via our virtual classroom. We are not looking for proofreaders or editors. You should be familiar with tutoring methodology, and love working with students who are developing critical thinking skills. Writing center experience is preferred.
