Sr. Director of Mentoring & Student Success – Top Tier Secondary Ed Teachers Wanted (STEM)

Altius Test Prep, LLC | Provo, UT, United States

Posted Date 9/11/2022
Description

COMPENSATION: Dependent on character and experience 

Aspirational position designed for early- to mid-career secondary educators who are frustrated with the woke ideology, administrative nightmares, and ineffective instructional methods plaguing the public school system. For the right candidate, Altius offers a major career upgrade in terms of compensation, opportunity, and culture. Ideal for teachers with an entrepreneurial spirit, unsatisfied career ambitions, and a strong interest in multiple of the following areas: curriculum development, pedagogy, student motivation/psychology, performance tracking/measurement/assessment, psychometrics, or memory science.

 

ALTIUS CULTURE 

We approach work differently. 

Most people have a job. Our team has a mission. 

Most people are employees. We are mentors. 

Most people TRADE their time for money. We INVEST our time in those we serve. 

Most people seek to elevate themselves. Our mission is to elevate our clients and team members. 

Most people expect a raise based on tenure. We reward excellence, not existence. 

Most people work for someone else’s gain. We work as one and win together. 

Most people make WIDGETS…and frequently change JOBS. We make a DIFFERENCE…and frequently change LIVES. 

Meaningful, mission-driven work does change lives. It doesn’t maximize profits, impress investors, or help anyone get-rich-quick. Our mission is immense. The barriers to our success are numerous. The work is hard—and there’s a lot of it. For those reasons, most folks simply won’t like it here. If you’re fighting for your piece of the pie, you can probably get a bigger bite elsewhere. On the other hand, if you’re exhausted with soulless corporations, societal decay, and low-character leadership…you may be ready to join us in fighting for something bigger than yourself.

 

Inspired Work. Never Woke. 

We’re drawing a line in the sand. We do not bow to woke or politically correct ideology. We hire character first, talent second. Around here, those words mean we will hire you (or fire you) based on those two criteria—never your gender, your skin color, or any other non-mission-related nonsense. We will never coerce you to speak allegiance to any political or sociological fetish, left or right. We celebrate Christmas. If that offends you, you shouldn’t work here. We also celebrate Hanukah and Ramadan. If that offends you, you shouldn’t work here. We live the truth that all people are created equal. Woke ideology divides us; we focus on what unites us.­­­­­

 

Win or lose, we are beholden to no one. 

We don’t participate in corporate welfare. We refused millions of dollars in PPP funds and we won’t be taking government subsidies or handouts in the future. We make a profit: Every. Single. Year. This small margin is our lifeblood, it is our primary tool for growth, and we defend it by honoring every dollar. We don’t go into debt. Ever.

 

Freedom Lovers Gathering... 

We are grateful. We are blessed. After God and family, freedom is our greatest endowment. Nothing we achieve would be possible without personal freedom, a free-market system, and the safeguards of our inspired Constitution. We love America and never back down from her defense. Yes, these can be fighting words…but we have courage. 

Some folks will find our ideals repulsive, and that’s okay. If you find them refreshing, please apply today; we’d like to get to know you better.

 

OUR MISSION 

We’re on a mission to elevate the character, behavior and performance of all students and team members through faithful adherence to true principles and proven scientific methods.

 

ALTIUS HISTORY 

Altius has achieved steady annual growth and profitability for 17+ years, while remaining debt-free. This growth continued through the COVID lockdown, despite significant downturns throughout our industry. We currently employ 300+ team members, and have a presence in nearly all 50 states, Canada, and select international locations. We provide students with effective, caring 1-on-1 mentoring and scientifically-backed education tools. Altius, which means “higher” in Latin, is a symbolic banner reminding us to insist upon elite performance in everything we do. We are currently staring at massive opportunities across multiple product lines. Education in the United States is about to undergo a massive transformation and we are uniquely poised to flourish in this environment. Our team is in need of proven leaders (rebels) from the Secondary Education field who will inspire, motivate, support, and hold their students accountable. Your job is to boldly lead our clients through their academic metamorphosis from “typical student” to high-achieving Altius graduate.

 

THIS IS NOT THE RIGHT FIT IF YOU… 

  • hope to replicate or maintain an 8 AM – 4 PM schedule with summers off. This job will boost your salary, but may require longer hours and more overall investment. That said, it has been our experience that many public educators are actually logging many, many hours outside of the typical school schedule. If that’s you—the transition may not be an issue.
  • generally like the public school system as it currently stands. We believe the public school system, from elementary to graduate school, is broken. Volumes of academic research refute the methods currently in use, so to be happy long-term moving from public education to Altius you need to have a revolutionary spirit.
  • accept the idea that students generally perform in line with the typical bell-curve distribution and there’s not a lot that can be done to change that fact—given their varying aptitudes and backgrounds. Busting curves is our business—we believe every student is capable of 95-100th percentile performance given the right tools and training. At Altius, we hold ourselves accountable for helping ALL students succeed.
  • are concerned about or unwilling to travel. We serve students and mentors coast-to-coast and they need to see their leaders face-to-face with some regularity. Out-of-town travel will be required about 8-12 weeks per year (always home on weekends).
  • care about your ego, or prefer not to have your ideas or decisions challenged.

 

THIS COULD BE THE IDEAL FIT IF YOU… 

  • like to build things and have a strong interest in entrepreneurism. Around here, everyone is an owner/entrepreneur.
  • are more than tired of the limitations put upon you by the public school system and are ready to escape.
  • get fired up about your students’ success and are usually willing to invest inordinate levels of personal effort in exchange for the massive payout of seeing one of your students achieve their goals.
  • welcome critique and value the input of senior team members.

 

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES 

  • Really nerd-out over student experience and achievement.
  • Create life-changing student success stories against what some might consider to be insurmountable obstacles.
  • Lose at least a little bit of sleep at night obsessing over your students.
    · Motivate your students to buy-in to our proven systems, including making meaningful changes to current behaviors. Use your dynamic motivational skills to accomplish this through both large public speaking settings and one-on-one mentoring.
    · Drive student performance company-wide through leading, inspiring, and holding accountable a large group of 300+ mentors nationwide. These mentors are the front-line of Altius, the instructors who deliver (or fail to deliver) on the Altius promise. Coordinate your efforts with our team of Regional Directors, who have primary responsibility for mentoring & achievement within their regions.
  • Monitor, track, and report overall student progress as measured by established data points. Report on student progress to senior management and intervene in creative and aggressive ways to ensure elite performance at historical Altius levels.
    · Improve average score of Altius clients on standardized exams (How our clients want to succeed)
    · Improve level of program adherence/completion by current Altius students (The number one indicator of whether or not our clients will succeed.)
    · Improve Reviews/Satisfaction Ratings from both our clients and our Tutor-Mentors (The natural outgrowth of our clients’ success.)
    · Number and strength of inspirational client success stories (We live off these…like food…we seriously need them.)

 

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS 

  • 5+ years teaching or developing science or English curriculum at an accredited secondary (grades 9-12) or university institution. STEM teachers are the target candidate pool for this position, but science teachers must nevertheless demonstrate strong English reading and writing skills. Teachers of English and other disciplines may be considered if they have some science background and are willing to study and master the required science disciplines.
  • Existing mastery or willingness to study and master the core science disciplines required for admission to medical schools: general chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, physics, and biology. Well-suited candidates can be hired with the commitment to master these disciplines as quickly as possible (with Altius tools and support).
  • Bachelor’s degree
  • Appropriate state licensure and/or certifications to teach at the secondary (grades 9-12) level or above.

 

BENEFITS PACKAGE

  • Base salary higher than typical earnings for secondary ed teachers
    · You’ll be treated like an owner, including profit sharing tied directly to the company’s bottom line.
    · Unlimited vacation and PTO, plus flexible work schedules.
  • One full week off for both Thanksgiving & Christmas (The Altius office is closed or run by a skeleton PT crew to ensure you spend this important time with friends & family)
  • Premium Medical & Dental Group Health Insurance
  • 401k with guaranteed 3% annual contribution (This is not a match. We will fund your 401k even if you do not).
  • Tuition Reimbursement for approved employee development classes, conferences, etc.
  • Do work that matters. Change lives every. single. day.
  • Be an integral part of a team driven to accomplish massive goals, such as revolutionizing the U.S. educational model.
  • Work with people who are fiercely loyal to you—giving you every possible opportunity to succeed, including opportunities to fail, learn, and try again. We will never stop fighting for your success unless you do.
  • New, modern work environment with flexible workspaces, soda fountain, and fully-stocked break room.
  • Decidedly non-corporate, candid, open, family-like executive team and culture. Although we have grown to have an international presence, Altius is still a true family business.
