Fiveable Courses AP Teacher

Fiveable - Remote - Part time

Who we are:

In April of 2018, former high school teacher Amanda DoAmaral started live streaming reviews for AP students. After a year of hacking things together to reach 5k students, she met Austin Monroe and Tan Ho on Reddit and the team became official with Amanda as the teacher brain, Austin the developer, and Tan the designer and SEO guru. Soon after, Aaron Levin (developer) and LG (SEO specialist) joined the team. In 2020, we have already supported 1M students.

What we're building:

Even before COVID, high school students would find themselves boppin' around the internet searching for resources, but unsure of what to trust and who to ask for help. Tutors are expensive, great teachers are not always accessible, and the opportunity gap is wide. Post-COVID, this gap has increased 10x as teachers and schools scramble to provide online materials, but so many students are still left out. At Fiveable, we're building a new social learning network that empowers students and teachers to support each other through live streams, study guides, and interactive games. Learning should be fun, social, and accessible to every student.

Who we're looking for:

This year, Fiveable is offering semester-long virtual AP courses for all AP subjects. The courses will be a project-based mix of synchronous and asynchronous learning. There are three main supports for each course: the teacher for facilitation, the TAs for student support, and the readers for feedback. Check out our launch page for more information: https://courses.fiveable.me/

We are looking to work with teachers who have at least 2 years of experience teaching their AP subject, and who can dedicate 10 hours a week for the course. The ideal teacher is in tune with the latest edtech trends and is comfortable using technology. The teacher must be a dynamic facilitator who feels just as comfortable in small groups as they are in a 500-student webinar. Experience working with an LMS is a big plus. Ability to adapt instruction week to week based on student performance a must. We are looking for someone ready to reimagine education with us!
