Are you looking for a flexible part time job? Check out Coding with Kids - we are looking for instructors to teach coding to elementary and middle school students as well as camps. We will provide paid training and get you ready to teach with another instructor. We have opportunities at many local schools.
What the job is like:
As an instructor, you teach after-school classes, evening classes and/or camps. We provide the curriculum and even the computers. Your focus would be to learn and teach the curriculum, build relationships with your students and their parents and most of all have fun. Feel free to bring your thoughts and creative ideas to class - teaching the kids is so much fun, especially when they light up upon learning something new.
What's the commitment:
Each class is about an hour long, plus prep time and follow up. After school classes are typically once a day. Once you are assigned to a class we need you to commit to the whole session - typically 6-8 weeks.
We are also looking for instructors who will be able to continue teaching with us in the summer for summer camps. Summer camps are Monday-Friday. Scheduling is flexible for either mornings from 9am-Noon, afternoons from 1-4pm or for full days.
What you will get out of this job:
You will laugh every day. The kids LOVE to code and they have fun. Their enthusiasm is infectious.
You will learn coding - unless you already know it! Some classes are easier than others - you can decide what level you are comfortable with.
Competitive pay for training, prep time and instruction time.
Connection to your community.
The kind of person we are looking for:
Although we will train you on the curriculum, you need to have a high degree of comfort with computers, logging in, accessing websites and connecting to wifi
Experience leading groups of kids - babysitting, coaching, lifeguard, camp counselor etc.
Reliability - The kids depend on you to show up.
