To create the list, FlexJobs analyzed the job posting history of nearly 57,000 companies to identify companies that had posted the most remote jobs in 2021. FlexJobs defines a “remote job” as one that allows employees to work from home all or part of the time.
Varsity Tutors connects students with personalized tutors in more than 3,000 subjects. The St. Louis, Missouri-based company has hired workers for hybrid and fully remote flexible schedules in education, training, customer service and more.
In 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic was sweeping across the U.S., Varsity Tutors launched a free set of online classes for students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
“We decided there was an opportunity to step up in a big way,” Varsity Tutors CEO Chuck Cohn said when the Virtual School Day launched.
The platform includes math, reading, writing, literature and science courses for every grade level, as well as expert-guided study hall sessions and age-appropriate enrichment units, such as “the science of pandemics” for middle schoolers.
Varsity Tutors also created a virtual summer camp initiative in 2020 that aimed to provide a virtual alternative for the 20 million U.S. families that use summer camps annually.
“We know that long summer breaks bring with them a ‘learning gap,’ and that will be even more prevalent this year,” said Brian Galvin, Chief Academic Officer at Varsity Tutors, at the time. “Families often use summer camps as a way to bridge that gap with enriching learning opportunities, so it’s important for us to provide resources to keep students learning and engaged as the months away from school build. Virtual Summer Camp, while not a direct replacement for traditional camp, can help students explore their interests, continue to learn and stay busy in case these camps can’t operate.”
