EDUCATION

Community Educator

REDWOOD CITY, CA; FAIRFAX, VA & WOODBRIDGE, VA
FULL-TIME


Trustle’s mission is to support parents. In our present moment, that means bringing high-quality, safe, and affordable education to their children. Our goal is to provide parents with the support they need to ensure their children continue to progress in school, despite the challenges they continue to face during a pandemic. Trustle will match small groups of around 5 children with a community educator who will support their daily schoolwork and provide group enrichment activities.

Our Mission

Microschools and learning pods have quickly become the go-to solutions for wealthy families; hiring a teacher to educate your child and a small number of other children. This solution, while effective for those families, is likely to increase inequity in education. Our mission is to provide a safe environment for ALL students to learn and to implement their public school’s distance learning curriculum, and to do so regardless of resources.

What you’ll do

As a Trustle community educator, you’ll provide local families with support in a time of crisis; being a central part of their child’s education. You’ll lead a ‘pod’ with a small number of children, and work with them in-person each day in one family’s home, implementing the remote learning curriculum assigned by their school.

Trustle will support you in this mission by providing you the training to be successful, the tools to keep everyone safe, and a support team of expert educators when you need them for supervision, curriculum enhancement, and support.

Requirements

We’re looking for dedicated individuals who have some experience working with young children. You may be, for example, a recent college graduate who worked as a tutor, a current student who was a counsellor at a summer camp, or a youth leader or classroom assistant looking for their next role. However you have worked with children, your experience has enriched your understanding of how they behave and learn. You value the importance of forming connections as the basis for teaching, and you are flexible and patient in your interactions.

Required qualifications

  • Some experience working with children
  • An associates or bachelors degree
  • Strong interpersonal skills
  • A comfort with elementary level math, reading, and writing
  • A desire to make a big impact on the lives of young children and families
  • Looking for a long term (6 month+) role

Preferred qualifications

  • Bachelors or higher in education, psychology or a related field
  • Experience with children in groups and / or an instructional setting

Why work with us:

  • Competitive pay
  • Benefits including healthcare, paid time off and sick leave
  • Ongoing professional development

Job Type: Full-time

Pay: $19.00 - $23.00 per hour
