WANTED: PART-TIME AFTERSCHOOL TEACHERS & CLUB LEADERS
for practical, fun maths club- BrainBuilders
Excellent opportunity to join a wonderful team of teachers and have flexible hours delivering primary school maths clubs!
BrainBuilders runs fun, after-school, hands-on Maths clubs in independent schools across Southwest London. The joy of leading a BrainBuilders club means you get the enjoyment and fulfilment of working creatively with children without the admin of being in a school. All lessons come fully planned with all the resources completed so club teachers can pick up and go. We handle the admin with schools so our teachers can just focus on what they love most- teaching!
We have a great opportunity for anyone with a passion for teaching and classroom experience, as we’re expanding and looking for club teachers to join our team. You don’t need to be a maths whizz- just someone who wants to have fun with children, bolstering their understanding for a subject that is often misunderstood. Our teachers are current and previous teachers or teaching assistants who specialise in anything from Drama, History, English to Maths.
At BrainBuilders, we want all children to have fun with maths! Our sessions are all maths-based but all linked to other subjects– for example, maths and art, maths and PE, maths and cooking – to name a few. Our focus is on consolidating classroom learning in practical ways to help put maths learning into practise– not about teaching new skills.
BrainBuilders was set up by experienced teachers and school leaders who know the importance of hands-on learning in providing deeper understanding and engaging children. Because we are teachers, we also know how all-consuming the job can be and therefore we wanted to create a more flexible work environment for all those who love the profession, but want a better work-life balance. We also wanted to create an environment where children could have fun with maths- get messy, get active and make it practical!
Club sessions run for 1 hour after school. Pay is generous.
Have UK classroom experience
Believe that all children can have fun and achieve in maths
Have experience following lesson plans and adapting in a flexible manner as best suits your group of children
Be patient, compassionate and enjoy teaching
Be reliable and punctual
Live in London
Why work for BrainBuilders:
To enjoy the best bits about teaching, without the admin of lesson planning, marking and resource prep
To enjoy flexibility in your schedule
To keep working as a teacher with flexible working hours- work from 1-3 clubs per week, leaving you time to enjoy other facets of your life
To stay up-to-date with curriculum, school life and safeguarding while taking a break from full-time teaching
To be a part of team that is committed to making maths fun
