Come teach future hackers of Generation Alpha, one line of code and juice box at a time!
BlockSchool is looking to hire its first teachers as we continue to sign up more new students. Do you have what it takes to be a kids coding teacher? Although this is not a full-time employee position, we are offering both a competitive hourly rate and equity.
Here's what we are looking for in order of importance:
- Must be AMAZING with kids. You might think that since you studied engineering, you are a good teacher, but this is not always true. The best teachers become friends with their students, know how to listen, and are kind. None of these things have anything to do with your engineering abilities. You must know how to get their interest, keep it, and give positive reinforcement.
- Be a role model. BlockSchool appeals to parents who are thinking ahead. This means they value what kind of employee, student, and person you are. This is why we are only hiring teachers who got good grades at top 100 US colleges, and have some experience teaching kids. Although you do not need to be an engineer, you must be able to pass our technical interview.
- Have a passion for teaching coding/STEM. Although being a BlockSchool teacher pays better than most remote jobs, we are looking for teachers who can dedicate at least 10-15 hours per week to teach. Maybe you work a part-time job, or you're looking to do something rewarding after working a 9-5. Either way, we want you for the long haul, not just a few months. Although we are not using Scratch, here is a project of similar difficulty that you would be teaching:
- Find this kind of humor funny.
BlockSchool's first few teachers will receive $30-$35 per hour, and receive equity in the company. To apply, please fill out this Google Form:
