This is a 1099 consulting role.


  • Create short instructional videos targeting specific foundational reading skills for Pre-Kindergarteners through Third Graders; most videos will be a few minutes long and will consist of a combination of high-quality live video and graphics
  • Conceptualize, shoot, and produce your own videos that explain the given phonological awareness or phonics concept and walk through example problems
  • Deliver video lessons in a clear, engaging, upbeat, and professional manner
  • Adhere to video production guidelines and file specifications


  • Experience teaching or tutoring students in phonological awareness and phonics in Pre-Kindergarten through Third Grade, using a structured literacy approach

  • Experience recording, editing, and producing videos
  • Ability to present material in an engaging, effective manner
  • Understanding of age-appropriate vocabulary and instructional approach
  • Bachelor's degree or higher

Select candidates will be asked to complete their application by submitting a sample video outline.
