Lead Guide, Alpha - an EDU Startup (United States) - $150,000/year USD

Job ID: 4844

Imagine a school with no teachers, no lectures, no lessons plans... a place where students can learn at the right speed for them, rather than the average speed of the class. In the absence of teachers, classes are led by "guides" who serve to motivate, inspire, and encourage our students to achieve challenging academic goals (but in a fun way!).

Alpha is that school, and we are looking for an expert motivator to coach and develop our team of guides. Alpha makes three promises to students and their families: students will love school, students will learn 3-5x faster through the use of adaptive learning apps and learning science principles, and students will learn valuable life skills to supplement their academic training.

Our educational apps provide all the academic content students need, but we want to connect with them in ways that are more engaging than Minecraft or TikTok. This is where you come in—making our team of guides better at engaging and connecting with students. We believe the best guide coach is also the best guide. If you love working with kids and challenging them to meet their potential, then this job is for you.

If you are a creative entertainer who knows how to motivate kids, join our team and help us revolutionize education!
