We are looking for passionate, innovative teachers to reach students in a new way.
We believe children need to prepare for a changing world where there is unlimited information and computing power at everyone’s fingertips. We are building an inclusive enrichment program that will focus on building skills for tomorrow – critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and complex problem solving. Students will spend most of their time solving rich, multi-layer problems and working on projects as a team. A good way to think of our philosophy is half school half escape room. You will spend more time facilitating conversations and nudging learners towards solutions than you will presenting information. If you believe that you can help develop thinking skills in a fun and engaging way and work in an entrepreneurial environment, this role may be for you.
We are currently hiring freelance teachers with a focus on children aged 8-14. We are a small company and are looking for entrepreneurial and passionate people to grow with us. Our courses are offered in an online, small group format (one hour per session). The curricula for the classes have been developed by our team but there is an element of customization that will be required based on learner needs and level of experience. Classes will be offered during the week in the mid-to-late afternoon depending on student availability (3-7pm ET/12-4pm PT). Candidates will need to understand that their hours will be dictated by which classes sell out and have flexibility within these times. On the plus side you can work from anywhere you can plug in. Some preparation and follow up for each class is required but all class material will be provided. Teachers will need their own computer and high speed internet connection in order to offer the course.
If you think you are a fit for this role and have experience teaching in the age range of 8-14, please send your resume plus a 1 to 3 minute video that introduces yourself and answers the question: What would you improve about the education system where you live? to firstname.lastname@example.org. The video doesn’t have to be scripted or perfectly shot; we just want to get a feel for your communication style.
Thanks for considering our posting and hoping to hear from you soon.
