Science and Math Teacher
Posted on 10/08/20201 Body Church - Lutz, FL 33549
$12.00 per hour Part Time
1 Body Church exists to launch and grow disciple, multiplication movements that transform communities until the whole world knows Jesus. Our church meetings are decentralized to multiple locations and smaller groups and we engage in underserved communities to develop relationships, make disciples and participate in improving lives and places. The education assistance ministry was born in 2018 out of a desire to meet a great need for remedial education, particularly in the areas of reading and math. We began with several students with helping parents home educate their children because they were getting left behind in the public schools. This grew to 9 students this year and expanded with a full time teacher as well as other volunteers, teaching all subjects required for a high school diploma. Children range in age from 14-17 and the majority of them are from foreign countries as refugees with English as their second language.
The position we are seeking is for someone who is proficient in the sciences and math, from a 6th grade level math to geometry. No official state certification is necessary, but welcome. Because we are a “one room” classroom, the skill levels vary from student to student so the teacher would need to be flexible in being able to customize explanations, examples, etc. to be understood by each student. Considering some of the students struggle with reading, some may need any tests or worksheets be administered orally. The math is online and isn’t labor intensive as the curriculum has the student conduct the subject autonomously, but close monitoring and possible answering specific questions, and be available for further explanation if needed, etc. Curriculum will be provided. Some lesson prep and grading will likely be necessary outside of the classroom. Actual in class time would be around 9 hours a week, outside of class prep time is approximately 3-5 hours on average per week.
Either traditional or homeschool teaching backgrounds are acceptable. We have flexibility in class times and class days which can be discussed and worked through. We are looking for a flexible, committed team player who can work alongside volunteers and the head teacher. This is a ministry, not a job. It pays, yes, but it is investing in the lives of at risk kids.
