STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) Course Instructor (Hong Kong) Wanted

Full time

Hong Kong ,   Central & Western, HK

Others

starting date : 2017-08-30

First Code Academy can provide a visa.

Description

First Code takes pride in providing top-notch education technology courses. Our instructors teach, inspire and mentor our students and guide them from zero programming background to a general proficiency.

This role requires a high degree of autonomy, entrepreneurial drive and passion toward technology. It is not a regular teaching role, nor a programming role. You take your passion in building and making things, and spread it to the next generation. You have a natural knack in engaging an audience, patience to work with active inquiring minds, and the ability to break down complex problems into smaller digestible pieces. This role provides a first hand experience in shaping the minds of our next generation.

"Coding + Children = My passion. First Code Academy has impacted me in such a positive manner that just two months of my time here has helped me discover this. As an instructor, I get to play with robots and learn new technology everyday and then try to pass over the skill sets to the kids. Watching them use their boundless imagination put to the test creating new apps and websites stuns me every single time and has made me realise how much potential lies within each and every child to use coding to change the world. It has been a great experience for me working (having fun) at FCA, interacting with the kids on a daily basis and learning from them as well. The environment set up for them at FCA is absolutely brilliant - they are given full authority to build whatever they want and use failure as a stepping stone to success which lines with our motto - "Done is better than perfect."
