Coursello is a new education company on a mission to make high-quality courses accessible to all students. Founded by a former principal and leaders from LearnZillion, eBay, and Apple, Coursello provides schools and districts with live, discussion-based online courses for high schoolers. Coursello is backed by A-Street Ventures.
Coursello is looking for high school World Language teachers (right now that includes Spanish and Chinese/Mandarin) to lead our live, discussion-based online courses. This is a remote opportunity. We will hire a team of teachers this summer to begin classes in August and September.
Coursello’s mission is to make high-quality courses available to all students. We engage students in meaningful tasks and texts, through live, discussion-based courses.
- $45,000-70,000 plus benefits
- $11,000 for one, full-year class, with an opportunity to teach multiple classes
- $500 for participating in onboarding workshops/meetings with Coursello staff two weeks before the launch of the first class
Both full time and contractors are responsible for:
- Leading a section of 20-25 students through one of Coursello’s World Language courses (Spanish or Chinese). Three days a week will be live classes when teachers facilitate the introduction of new content; two days are live support when teachers and teaching assistants support students in completing tasks and practice exercises. Coursello will provide the course content (including google slides, LMS set up, assignments, etc.)
- Grading and providing feedback to students
- Providing additional support to students struggling with the academic expectations
- Communicating with the school’s “learning coach” who oversees the physical classroom and supports student attendance, participation, and assignment completion
- Participating in regular check-ins with the Manager of Humanities Instruction
- Participating in professional development workshops (typically 2-3 hours once a month)
- Collaborating with Coursello’s Course Design team to provide feedback on what’s working and what could be improved
- Collaborating with 1-2 Teaching Assistants who will support the teacher in implementing the class
What matters most
Coursello courses are designed for student engagement. Coursello teachers are relentless about unlocking engagement for each team and each student.
