Instructor Hiring

The best teachers in the business want to work for us because of our strong curriculum and the unmatched support we offer. TestMasters receives hundreds of LSAT instructor applications each year, and less than 10% of all candidates are hired.

TestMasters instructors are better compensated than their counterparts at other companies. The starting pay rate for in-class teaching is $40 per hour, and we cover all housing and travel expenses for instructors who temporarily relocate to teach. Some of our veteran instructors earn as much as $100 per hour.

All TestMasters instructors make $60 per hour for in-person, online, and telephonic tutoring. They are also well compensated for helping students online via our academic support system, working in our research and development department, and conducting LSAT workshops for prospective students. In addition, we compensate instructors for the time they spend preparing for class.

Some companies advertise higher rates of pay but fail to offer significant work. A high pay rate is meaningless if no hours are available. In contrast, TestMasters’ large student base ensures that instructors have plenty of work. The annual payroll for our LSAT faculty is several million dollars, far exceeding that of any other company.
