The curriculum is self-paced and the instructors are there to motivate, keep kids on task, breakdown complex concepts, help debug, inspire and have fun. All the kids are different.
Instructors need to have programming experience in most of the languages taught. Good communication skills with parents is helpful, but more important is communicating well with the kids.
Starting part-time pay is $20 - $25 per hour for lead instructors, $18 per hour for assistant instructors. Assistant instructors will generally be paired with another instructor, where a lead instructor can run their own small classes (though usually they are run with at least 2 instructors). Most classes are after school (3:00 pm - 7:30 pm) or Saturdays (9 am - 4 pm).
While the instructors need to be reliable, there can be some flexibility to the scheduling. Ideally, we find days and sets of classes an instructor can commit to and hold to these with minimal week-to-week schedule variance.
Because instructors work closely with children, we do conduct background checks.
