PeerGenius Tutors is expanding throughout Florida and currently hiring top high school students in Pinellas and Hillsborough counties to be peer tutors.
PeerGenius Tutors is a tutoring service that trains and certifies high school students to help their younger peers in all K-12 subjects, study skills, organization and time management. After successfully implementing this high quality and affordable tutoring option in the Baltimore-Washington, D.C., area and Palm Beach County, the company will now offer its services to local families in Pinellas and Hillsborough counties.
PeerGenius will be hiring and training tutors throughout August and will begin offering services Sept. 1.
Hiring students as tutors is part of the company’s growth strategy to create flexible, above minimum wage jobs for young people who help their peers.
“We have numerous jobs available for teens who are strong overall students and also students who excel in a particular subject area,” said Peter Traub in a press release. Traub is co-founder of PeerGenius Tutors. “It’s real work experience and looks great on college applications.”
