About Strive | Making Kids’ Education Joyful & Meaningful
Strive is an online coding school for kids (8-16). We help students start and commit to their coding journeys by making coding fun and exciting. We focus, above all else, on making the process of learning joyful.
- Our mission is to make education more joyful and meaningful. We are starting with coding, but our goal is to redefine STEM education globally by creating the platform and content to teach math, science, and other subjects through coding.
- We’re a remote-first company with teachers and employees from South Africa, Singapore, India, the USA, and the Philippines.
- We’re a well-funded startup backed by YCombinator and early investors of Spotify and Facebook.
Role | Teaching kids coding online
Many kids find coding boring, many more are afraid, and even more think they are not “smart enough” to learn it. These kids will be left behind in an increasingly tech-driven world.
You will have the opportunity to transform kids’ lives by fundamentally reframing their confidence and perception of coding. You’ll give these kids 1 -2 joyful hours a week, where they will learn not only that they are smart enough to learn to code but that the process itself is incredibly fun.
Some more details
- Teach kids ages 8-16 how to code in Python/Scratch over Zoom.
- We provide you with all lesson material beforehand, which means minimal prep time.
- As a teacher, your role will be to guide the students to write the code for the full project, in a way that they can proudly say “I did this myself” or “we did this together”. This will require a lot of patience, empathy, and the skill of coaching. You’ll be problem solving and learning together along the way, and often our teachers learn a lot from their students.
