Do you have experience working with K-8 kids? Are you a scholar of science and math history? 

We are searching for an individual to deliver our rich compendium of math and science curriculum to a small group of students in the San Francisco Bay Area and to write lesson plan units based on the micro-school teaching. 

The role will require 8 to 12 hours per week of teaching in Palo Alto and the rest is curriculum edit, design, and format. 

The primary thrusts: Devise learning objectives for students, deliver the content, run exciting labs, make evaluations based on a portfolio of work, work with the students to drive deep comprehension of great math and science concepts, write lesson plan units.

The overarching goal: Facilitate engaging, challenge-based science and math programs, with experiments and projects that lead to a meaningful understanding of the world.

At QuantumCamp, we build curriculum by contemplating how scientists and mathematicians truly acquire knowledge and advance their field. What experiments and activities are necessary to discover a new idea? This is the question that drives our curriculum design.

Quite naturally then, the experience of students is supremely authentic; they are discovering profound science and math ideas, about which most educators lecture. They come to own these ideas for themselves and in turn, confidence and engagement spring forth. 

SPECIFIC ROLES


  1. Lead learning groups of 2-5 students around the Bay Area.

  2. Develop customized learning plans, tethered to the standards, for each individual student.

  3. Thoroughly prepare for and deliver amazing math and science lessons on a weekly basis to several groups of students. 

  4. Write detailed evaluation reports based on learning objectives established in the learning plans.

  5. Send weekly reports to students and families.

  6. Contribute to making an educational and societal impact in the United States and beyond as more individuals and groups incorporate QC’s math and science curriculum modules. 

EXPECTATIONS AND ATTRIBUTES


  • You love science, math, and kids! You are commanding, knowledgeable, and energetic. You have experience in the classroom. You are continually seeking to design better labs and better explanations. You are highly organized and have reverence for the impact of the classroom environment on learning. 

  • You are compelled to help students with their academic, social, and emotional growth, and have the skills and experience to keep your classroom focused on learning with minimal distractions. 

CONSIDERATIONS


  • Your science acumen permits you to discuss and run experiments, like the photoelectric effect, which enables you to run an experiment based course on the origin of the Bohr Model of the atom.

  • You believe 10-year-olds can learn calculus.

  • You know elementary, middle school, and high school students can and should be tracking the process of doing science along with actually doing the science.

  • You are at home working with 6 year olds struggling with the concept of the negative side of the number line. You empathize with the fact that negative numbers are an intriguing human concept!

  • You know 8, 9, and 10 year olds can and should be doing advanced experiments in zoology, botany, electricity, and chemistry.

  • You would like to facilitate an intuitive discovery of the laws of motion for 6 and 7 year olds.

  • You know and appreciate NGSS and Common Core. 

REQUIRED EXPERIENCE


  1. You are educated on various pedagogies and learning models - Montessori, social constructivism, flipped classroom, etc. 

  2. You are highly organized and meet deadlines.

  3. 1+ years experience working with groups of students between 1st and 12th grade, in either conventional or alternative education formats 

COMPENSATION 

Very competitive rate dependent on experience.
