Our 100% online, flexible, mentor-driven courses are setting the standard for globally accessible technical education. Through our online programs, expert Tutors and Mentors bring students from complete beginners to junior web developers in 6 months.
We are looking for experienced and passionate web developers all over the world to join our Tutor pool and help define the next generation of design talent by educating and empowering students across the globe.
Our global pool of over 150 Mentors and Tutors in web development, user experience design, and user interface design fields has grown to include freelancers, entrepreneurs, consultants, and tech leads who passionately guide, motivate, and empower our students to create new careers in the tech industry. We are constantly searching for more teaching enthusiasts like you to join this pool.
Tutoring is more than teaching. It is inspiring newcomers to the field to build, to problem solve, to think like a developer, and to increase their value as professionals. With their expertise from the field, Tutors work with Mentors to provide guidance and encouragement to their students each step of the way. To help guide CareerFoundry students, Tutors provide feedback on submissions, help students understand the lessons, and ask and answer questions about the materials to deepen student understanding of the core concepts.
Your Mission as Tutor:
Tutors give feedback and constructive criticism on assignments and provide students with the guidance they need to improve their work through reviews and industry insights. Once a student submits an assignment, Tutors make sure that it meets all the requirements set out by the course curriculum, marking to rubrics we provide with each task to ensure students meet a consistent standard.
When students are struggling with understanding a key area, Tutors are there to encourage them and provide supplemental tricks and tips to help them power through any roadblocks they encounter. Your job as a Tutor is not to hold a student’s hand, but to help them learn the troubleshooting and problem-solving skills they’ll need to work as a developer.
Tutors communicate with students through Slack and our in-platform messaging tool and respond to students within 24 hours of receiving an assignment submission.
