Note: We’re accepting candidates from anywhere in the greater Los Angeles area. We have offices in the city of Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley.
Our online Vocational School is seeking a Summer Instructor (August 2019) for our Spanish Graphic Design Online course (Note: This is a Windows/PC based course). Candidates for this position MUST be Bilingual (fluent in both English and Spanish). Your Spanish fluency must include the ability to explain things in a formal/technical manner. Your English fluency must include the ability to communicate effectively with team members (both written and verbal). The course hours are from 10 AM – 1 PM and 6 PM – 9 PM. We prefer that the Summer Instructor be able to teach both the 10 AM and 6 PM session, but if you are only available for one session, you are still welcome to apply. There are roughly 20 morning sessions and 20 evening sessions in August. Each session is roughly 3 hours (including a 25-minute break). Additional prep time will be negotiable. The candidate selected for the position must be able to start at least one week before August 2019 for training.
The Graphic Design Online course covers core Adobe applications: Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. The Graphic Design Online course takes place—you guessed it—entirely online. You will communicate with students LIVE online through web conferencing software and correspond outside of class hours via email. Note: The selected candidate may be able to work from home provided the candidate has a reliable high-speed internet connection and a quiet environment in which to work. A business class internet connection, computer, and required software will be provided at our Los Angeles location for the duration of the course otherwise.
About the position:
We teach non-traditional college students with a target age range of 35-65. Be prepared to teach students who are looking to learn fundamental, working knowledge of the software. Our instructors must have firm knowledge of the core course material but be willing to teach the material at a beginner level. Note: Candidates may be required to take a skills test as a part of the application process. Our instructors are expected to keep up with the constantly changing software and technology that we use. Additionally, our instructors are expected to maintain a strong professional rapport with all students. Our instructors must be able to manage student attendance, grades, monitor progress, make an appropriate assessment of achievement, tailor classes to meet student needs, and handle conflict resolution professionally and effectively. All online courses are facilitated using GoToMeeting web conferencing software. Experience managing online meetings or classes is extremely desirable but not required (this can include Google Hangouts or similar software). Our instructors must be able to provide a warm, welcoming environment for students. People skills are a MUST. Additionally, instructors must exude confidence (through clear knowledge of the material) and be able to motivate students to succeed. Note: Sample lesson plans, exercises, assignments, and exams will be provided.
• AA Degree or higher in a relevant field of study
• 1 year or more of teaching experience (or experience in providing Technical Support)
• Motivated self-starter, fast learner
• Punctual, with an ability to work in a deadline driven environment
