Submitting an application video

Sarah Snyder -

If you are unable to schedule an interview, you're welcome to submit an application video instead. When you are ready, record yourself explaining the solution to a math problem from our list below. You will be assessed on math knowledge, teaching style, and communication.

1. Choose your math problem.  

Please choose a math problem to use for your demo from this list.

2. Record your video.

 Your recording should include:

  • A brief description of yourself and your teaching/tutoring experience (1-2 minutes).
  • A thorough explanation of your chosen problem, as though you were helping a student (5-10+ minutes).

Please use a whiteboard recording app to record your video. We recommend using ShowMe.

  • For info on using ShowMe and submitting your presentation, check out this video.
  • For additional information on ShowMe, click here.

3. Send your video to [email protected].

Be sure to include your name in the email.


We’ll look forward to reviewing your application! Let us know if you have any questions or run into issues.

    However when I click the this list link, I get a message saying
