compensation: $13-$20 an hour
employment type: part-time

Are you looking for a flexible part time job that connects you to the local schools? 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 in the area! We will train you on the curriculum so don't worry about that.

What the job is like:
As an instructor, you teach after-school classes, evening classes and/or camps based on your schedule and availability. 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 so this is an ideal part time job that still leaves you plenty of time for family social activities. Once you are assigned to a class we need you to commit to the whole session - typically 6-8 weeks.

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 - 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 basic comfort with computers, logging in, accessing websites and connecting to wifi
Experience leading groups of kids. You will undoubtedly use your "Mom/Dad" voice - they are kids after all.
Reliability - The kids depend on you to show up.
Sense of humor and flexibility.
Comfortable speaking with parents, students and school staff.
Transportation to teaching location.
