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. A good way to think of our philosophy is half school half escape room. Course facilitators spend more time facilitating conversations and nudging learners towards solving problems together 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.

Candidates should be comfortable teaching learners aged 6-14.  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, typically one hour per session. This role will start with a few classes per week and grow from there. All work is remote and class material is provided. Teachers will need their own computer and high speed internet connection in order to offer the course.

Must have:

  • Experience in online and/or classroom K12 teaching
  • Passion for teaching essential thinking skills to young people
  • Experience or ability to quickly become confident using technology to conduct online classes
  • Highly professional approach: punctuality, understanding of privacy, professional appearance and demeanor

Nice to have:

  • Advanced education degree
  • Experience teaching or interacting with gifted and talented learners

If you think you are a fit for this role and have experience teaching in the age range of 6-14, please send your preferences for age range, weekly availability and your resume plus a 1 to 3 minute video that introduces yourself and answers the question: Why are 21st Century Skills important?  to The video doesn’t have to be scripted or perfectly shot; we just want to get a feel for your communication style.
