Do you love working with kids and inspiring the next generation of thinkers, writers, and doers? Instructors at Juni Learning work directly with students ages 8-18 by teaching weekly, online English classes.

The starting rate for Juni Instructors is $20 per hour. We’ve designed the instructor role to be a flexible, part-time position. Instructors can set their availability and generally work with their students and a regular time, once or twice a week. We expect a commitment of teaching 6 hours per week and at least a 5 month commitment. Instructors will use the curriculum and teaching tools developed by Juni Learning. Each lesson is 50 minutes long, taught in an online, private (1-1) format. Eventually, instructors may have the opportunity to teach small group classes, too.

  • Treat all students and parents with respect.
  • Act in accordance to a high standard of ethics, and maintain family and student confidentiality and privacy.
  • Take initiative to solve or anticipate problems early or refer to another Juni Learning employee.
  • Flexibly adapt to changing needs, and collaborate effectively with co-workers for any issues that may arise.
  • Promote our values and mission, and serve as role models for kids of all backgrounds and ages.
