    Match Corps Tutor Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Match Charter.

    Interview

    I submitted an online application, and received a call about a week later. Standard interview questions: what are your weaknesses, what are your strengths, why do you want to work at this school in particular. Had my site visit, about two months later (because of travel issues). It consisted of being taken around by a tutor, tutoring a student in a sample lesson, an interview with the director of the match corps and observing a tutorial. Got an offer by the end of the week.

    Match Corps Tutor Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Match Charter (Boston, MA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    First round was a phone interview. I was asked to describe a challenging situation and a situation when I had to react to feedback.
    On-site interview was half day long. They first showed me around--toured the school building. Then I was put in a classroom to observe a teacher teaching for about 30 minutes. The corps director greeted me after the session and asked me to talk about what I saw. Then I was put in another classroom to observe a 1st grade tutor session. Then I had to do my own with a 2nd grader (for less than 5 minutes). They gave me feedback after this and brought me another 2nd grader to do another session on the same material. Finally, I had a sit-down interview with the director. There were no trick questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Match Charter (Boston, MA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Very long process. I flew in to Boston and my flight was delayed - I didn't arrive until 4 in the morning and my interview was at 8 am. No one asked me any personal questions (ie where i was from, how i was doing) and it was all business / go.. go.. go. I had several interviews, took a Spanish test, tutored a student, and taught a lesson to a teacher pretending to be a student. I think it gives good impression of what MATCH is like - if you like something that structured and intense, then it might be for you.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Match Charter in December 2011.

    Interview

    First interview is a phone interview where they get a general sense of why you want to join MATCH. They ask questions about your familiarity with the no-excuses charter school model, and they ask you to respond to a reading about no excuses teaching practices.

    Second interview is on-site at the school. You do two interview sessions and receive feedback on your sessions. They want to see how receptive you are to feedback, so it is key that you be reflective on how your tutoring sessions go and don't appear defensive. You do an interview with the principal and the corps director where they press to see how much grit and drive you have, as well as to see whether you've dealt with challenging situations in your past.

    You also have lunch with a corps member and with students, so they can ascertain how well you interact with students and with peers.

    Interview Questions

    • Working at MATCH is really, really difficult. Why do you think you have what it takes to be a MATCH Corps member?   Answer Question
