Career Coach, Alpha - an EDU Startup - $100,000/year USD

Company: Crossover
Location: Everett
Posted on: November 23, 2022

Job Description:

Crossover is the world's #1 source of full-time remote jobs. Our clients offer top-tier pay for top-tier talent. We're recruiting this role for our client, Alpha - an EDU Startup. Have you got what it takes?
IMPORTANT NOTE: This is an in-person role located in Austin, Texas.
You graduated from a great school with an interesting degree--- and the job market hasn't noticed. Or maybe the job market DID notice you - but you have yet to find a position that truly lights you up and puts your skills to good use.
If you're a high achiever with a deep love of learning, an entertaining personality, and a healthy disdain for antiquated educational structures that stopped working around the time electricity was discovered, then Alpha is the place for you.
Alpha is a new kind of school. You won't find stuffy lectures or rigid lesson plans here. Instead, we've built a place where students can learn at the right speed for them, rather than having to wait for their peers to catch up.
In place of traditional learning tools, Alpha offers students adaptive apps and unique motivational strategies, all rooted in scientifically proven learning principles like mastery and spaced repetition. Our students learn twice as much as they would in a "regular" school - discovering their strengths, fostering their interests, and picking up valuable life skills along the way.
Instead of teachers, Alpha hires entertaining, energetic, and inspiring individuals like you who connect with students on a peer level. You will be responsible for motivating and encouraging students to achieve challenging academic goals--- while actually enjoying school.
Instead of the traditional class structure with one overworked, underpaid teacher scrambling to hold the classroom's attention all day, Alpha students enroll in daily 1-hour workshops. Popular topics of past workshops include mindfulness, business management, sleight of hand, baking, robotics, and lots more.
We make three promises to parents:

  • Your child will genuinely love school and develop a true thirst for knowledge.
  • Your child will learn at least 2x faster than they would at a regular school, through the use of adaptive learning apps and learning science principles.
  • Your child will learn valuable life skills to supplement their academic training.
    Along with exploring creative problem-solving and rational thinking, kids learn essential communication and emotional management skills. Alpha students graduate fully prepared for whatever next step they choose - whether that's attending a prestigious university, launching a startup, writing a book, founding a nonprofit, or anything else they're driven to do.
    Please apply if---
    • You're a gifted, relatable motivator who can connect with kids on a peer level
    • You have experience as a camp counselor, athletic coach, or similar non-teaching role
    • You're a role model who holds yourself to the same high standards you expect from your students
      If you've never really considered working in education, but you believe the K-12 experience can shape kids' lives, we want you at Alpha.
      What You Will Be Doing
      • Leading live Workshops: You'll teach live workshops to students ranging in age from K-12th grade. Along with offering material that sparks the desire to explore and learn more, you'll coach students on valuable life skills like public speaking, focus, and giving and receiving feedback.
      • Holding daily Motivation Sessions: Because so much of personal success comes down to mindset, you'll help students set a positive tone for their own daily learning as they advance.
      • Cultivating student success: Following our playbooks, you'll be responsible for ensuring that 100% of students achieve their academic goals and master core life skills.
        What You Won't Be Doing
        • Traditional teaching: At Alpha, students learn solely from self-guided, adaptive learning apps. You'll be there to help them connect the dots, apply their new skills, and problem-solve along the way - no lectures required.
        • Disciplining: The old-school learning model of pushing kids to the point of burnout or disengagement doesn't apply here. Instead of punishments, you will share behavioral corrections and respectful reasoning that gets results.
          Basic Requirements
