Sam School for Test Prep, LLC, (formerly, PrepMate, Inc.,) is a progressive educational company, based in New York, USA, since 2009. At Sam School, we specialize in test prep for over a decade and we have successfully helped thousands of students to score well in standardized tests such as SAT, ACT, Regents and SHSAT.
We need motivated professionals on assignment contract basis to develop question banks for our test prep courses and products. The question bank developers write and develop high quality questions and answers for standardized tests. Question banks are developed for various grade levels (K-12) and on various subjects, such as math, reading, English Language Arts, US History, Social Studies, and more. We provide necessary reference materials for question bank development.
We need teachers, tutors and educators with excellent subject knowledge and experience in teaching such subjects. Experience in preparing course material and tests will be a big plus. We can also train candidates without experience.
Question Bank Developers must have impressive command over written English. Subject knowledge, spelling, grammar, punctuation and writing style are the five most important aspects of this assignment. Familiarity with American English will be an advantage. (color vs. colour, for example.)
Though this is not a full-time job, you must be able to set apart reasonable amount of time to develop questions.
Sam School may provide reference material for some subjects, but the Question Bank Developers may also develop their own questions and answers for chosen subjects and grade levels.
This is a work-from-home online assignment on contract basis. Our team members develop questions for a few hours a day (weekdays and/or weekends) to earn valuable additional income - which is based on the quality and quantity of questions and answers. After we receive your resume, we'll make an offer and go from there.
