Our instructors and tutors are a diverse group of well-trained teaching professionals with a strong technology background. Some of our instructors have a Bachelor's and/or Master's degree with over 3+ yrs of experience as an applications expert (programmer, IT, engineering, math, physics, etc.). We require background checks on all of our employees and put them through a rigorous training program to be effective applied STEM instructors.
In addition to staffing after school classes with highly qualified teachers, we also can staff instructors as part of your school's core technology curricula.
Some of our teachers are also available for one on one tutoring and smaller groups, we have tutors who speak Spanish and Mandarin which can be helpful. There are numerous local and national robotics and coding competitions where volunteer mentors may not be sufficient for your teams. We can help connect teams to volunteers and you may also be interested in hiring one of our coaches with experience in these competitions. For example in NYC, we work with teams who participate in the FIRST Lego League and Robotics competitions.
