Academic Instructional Coach

· Westport, Connecticut
Employment Type Full-Time
Minimum Experience Entry-level
Compensation Salary based on experience

Our fundamental belief at Freudigman & Billings is that children learn best in the context of supportive relationships. We are committed to helping our students better understand how they learn and how they can take ownership of that learning. Our team provides educational solutions for middle and high school students through individual assessment, personally tailored learning programs, and one-on-one instruction.

Instructional coaches at F&B provide holistic academic support for high school students across a variety of educational domains. The work is as rewarding as it is challenging as we help students navigate some of the more meaningful steps forward in their education. The ideal candidate will have some experience working with middle or high school students and teaching relevant content, and should possess excellent communication and executive functioning skills. Our instructors are empathetic and exercise a flexible mindset. This is an entry level position and the necessary training is provided.

Why Join Freudigman & Billings?

Predictable hours at a single office location: Almost always, our work with students takes place at our 11,000 square foot headquarters in Westport, CT. Students are encouraged to utilize our space not only to see their instructors, but to do homework, hang out with friends, have a snack, get some advice, or even catch a quick nap during finals week. Instructors are provided with a private classroom, a whiteboard, and all materials necessary for a productive session. No unpaid time as you drive from house to house! 

Teamwork: We work closely together on a daily basis to create and execute individualized learning plans, meaning that our work is far more comprehensive and impactful than a transactional hour of “tutoring.” We are proud of the collegiality that our building and our philosophy inspires, as well as the team of educators we have attracted as a result.

Professional development: We care about our staff and teaching you how to teach. Our team of Directors have PhDs, Masters degrees, and other certifications to help you achieve your goals and help you gain mastery of your own instructional techniques. You will learn our pedagogy and have the opportunity to experience career growth.

Administrative support: We have a full time team that handles scheduling, billing, inventory and printing of materials, and administration and scoring of practice exams.

Great pay: A guaranteed salary instead of an hourly rate.
