Jobs and Positions


We believe that all students can learn and that every student needs to find their own learning path. A good teacher certainly believes that each student can learn, but there is no one-size-fits-all learning style. Learning should be tailored to each student as much as possible. Educators owe their students passion, drive, determination, and an example of success.

Base Pay: $15-$25/hr

Tutors and Coaches

The overall goal of educating students should be to serve as guides for them as they seek out their own paths in life and to provide a learning environment that fosters learning. All students should feel welcome and respected and remember their education with fondness. Tutors help us provide 1-on-1 assistance to students, while coaches help us provide advice to students, parents, and organizations looking to implement the Canary Way.

Tutor Base Pay: $15-$25/hr

Coach Base Pay: $50-$75/hr

Administrative Team 

Education is always changing and growing, but one thing should remain the same: the Canary Way advocates for engaging and memorable learning experiences for all students. Our general team provides the back-end and administrative support needed to propel our mission forward. 

Base Pay: $13.50-$15/hr 

Stipended Pay: $500-$1,500/month


We see our team as family! We provide enrichment, continuing education, and constant opportunities to further learning and expand their careers.
