    Job Description

    A wide range of studies confirm that 80% of learning difficulties cannot be corrected with traditional, supplemental tutoring and instruction. Instead, these struggles require improved skills at the cognitive level of the brain that are often the actual cause of the problem. Cognitive skills are not reading, writing, and math, but rather the underlying mental abilities required for long-term success in those subjects. In fact, cognitive skills that Early Life assesses for via the Cognitive Assessment System (Planning, Attention, Simultaneous Processing and Successive Processing...PASS) are the foundations for success throughout a person's life. Unique to the State of Utah, Early Life Cognitive Tutor/Academic Trackers are specifically trained to integrate the cognitive testing results from our assessment and devise individualized tutorial services in order to help students make significant progress in their studies and cognitive processes. In additon, our tutors assist parents by taking the organizational load of tracking homework assignments and school progess off busy parents' schedules. Subject matter material is not neglected as we only train tutors who have shown evidence of significant academic achievement, as well as demonstrated abilities to make appropriate connections with children and teenagers. We are a licensed and reputable clinic with licensed psychologists and licensed professional counselors supervising all services provided. We are NOT a franchise owed and operated by lay persons. We are registered with the Utah BBB and our chief psychologist is licensed by the Utah Board of Psychology with no complaints. We are local clinical community scientist dedicated to providing science based treatment that is based upon solid peer reviewed research.

    Relocation costs may be covered.

    Requirements

    1. Love and and passion for children who are struggling in public, private and charter schools. 2. A 100% clear criminal record. (We perform extensive criminal/child abuse background checks). 3. A B.S/B.A. degree in psychology, education or related subject(s). Exception will be made by exceptional students who are currently enrolled as a Junior or Senior from the following institutions of learning: Brigham Young University, University of Utah, Westminster College. 4. Experience tutoring and/or teaching children. 5. A working vehicle and a laptop computer. 6. An active cell phone number. Please see our website for a full description. PLEASE, NO PHONE CALLS.
