Company: Crossover
Location: Miami
Posted on: November 24, 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.
If you want no more pencils, no more books, no more teacher's dirty looks -
But you still want to inspire, motivate, and spark interest in young minds -
You belong at Alpha.
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 kids can learn at the right speed for them, rather than waiting for their peers to catch up.
In place of traditional educational tools, Alpha offers students adaptive apps and highly effective motivational strategies. Designed by education experts, our apps are rooted in scientifically proven learning principles like mastery and spaced repetition.
Instead of traditional teachers, Alpha employs Guides: entertaining, energetic speakers who motivate, inspire, and encourage students to achieve challenging academic goals while actually enjoying their time at school. Thanks to this unique approach to education, Alpha students learn twice as much as they would in a "regular" school - and they discover their strengths, foster their interests, and pick up valuable life skills along the way.
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.
    Right now, Alpha is looking for an expert mentor to coach and develop our team of Guides. In this role, you'll shape the ways Alpha Guides connect with students. Consider applying if---
    • You're a natural leader who can balance empathy with logic, objectivity, and firmness
    • You believe that students are limitless but can also sometimes be dishonest, not try their hardest, or make excuses
    • You would be the best Guide if we hired you at that level, but you'd rather coach Guides and hold them to a high standard
      If you know what it means to build the best K-12 program in the US, then join Alpha to help us revolutionize education!
      What You Will Be Doing
      • Coaching your team of Guides. By regularly providing personal, actionable feedback to your team of Alpha Guides, you'll improve their daily performance and in turn, amplify student enjoyment and achievement.
      • Creating Guide Playbooks that detail best practices for virtual facilitation, instructions on how to design more rewarding learning activities, and what to do when challenges arise.
        What You Won't Be Doing
        • Teaching students directly: Instead, you'll lead a team of Guides in keeping their students engaged and motivated. You'll also help your Guides navigate any challenges that come up.
        • Writing lesson plans: Think bigger. While your Guides shepherd their students' day-to-day learning through the use of self-guided, adaptive learning apps, you'll be training Guides to be better facilitators, showing them how to create enrichment activities, and helping them bring more enthusiasm and impact to their live sessions.
        • Interacting with parents: You won't have to worry about parents breathing down your neck and putting everything you do under a microscope. We have someone else taking care of that for you.
        • Lowering standards for any reason: If our standard is 100% to pass, and a Guide wants to pass a student with 99%, you have to uphold that standard. If a 6th grader wants to take a college course, you will have to know how to make that happen.
          Basic Requirements
          Coach key responsibilities
          • Experience working with kids in any capacity
          • Experience building or coaching a team (of either kids or adults)
          • Experience using data to drive decision-making
          • Legal right to work in the US without visa sponsorship
          • Willingness to relocate to Austin, TX
            About Alpha - An EDU Startup
            Want to build better schools? Join the thriving community of Alpha. Alpha is a K-12 school in the heart of Austin, TX committed to redefining the way kids go to school. Change starts with our three promises to parents:
            • Students love school.
            • Students learn two times faster than in a traditional school.
            • Students learn life skills.
