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, gt.school. Have you got what it takes?
Do you know the secret formula to crush the AP History exams? If you aced your exams and are ready to build a scalable program to help others do the same, we want to talk to you!
gt.school helps gifted and talented students accelerate their learning via fully remote educational apps. We believe technology can deliver an educational experience that engages and teaches kids 3-5x faster than the standard teacher-classroom model.
You will approach learning through the lens of tutoring: when students only have 1-2 hours a week to spend on a subject, what are the most important concepts, tools, and skills to learn? Success in this role will be measured by the percentage of students scoring 4+ on their AP exams.
If you’re eager to give kids a learning experience that actually makes them love school, we urge you to apply.
