CodeSpeak Labs teaches kids coding, the language of the 21st century. Jobs in computer programming are among the fastest-growing and highest-paying opportunities, but most schools do not offer any computer science classes. We offer classroom-based instruction during and after school in New York, NY and Orange County, CA for grades K-12.
CodeSpeak Labs coaches are enthusiastic, committed individuals who love helping kids learn and solve problems. CodeSpeak Labs takes a lab-based approach; the focus is on students doing rather than listening to lectures or reading textbooks. Coaches guide students through activities which progressively develop their coding skills.
Through each stage of the program, students build working websites, apps, games, and more, and coaches send parents and school administrators regular progress updates via email with links to student work.
This is a part-time position 2 – 15 hours / week. It’s a great opportunity for undergraduate students, grad students, and working professionals with flexible schedules during the week day (8am – 5pm). Once you’re accepted into the ranks of CodeSpeak Labs Coaches, we’ll match you up with classes and students based on your skills and availability.
CodeSpeak Labs coaches start at $20/hour. Regular pay increases will be based on performance.
