Become the educator you always wanted to be.

At Prenda, guides are learning coaches who work with small groups of children where they can really change lives.  Prenda provides the educational model, tools and training. You create a safe, healthy and engaging environment. Watch students thrive.

WHY BECOME A GUIDE

Small and informal setting lets you do more with each student

Ten students or less means more opportunity for making a big impact in students lives.

Students are engaged

Because kids are working on things they like, they are excited to learn. As a guide, you coach and encourage them to discover the things that light up their interest.

Freedom to build the best experience for your students

As the guide, you have flexibility to create the experience that works best. The focus is on students, not on administrative overhead.

COMMON QUESTIONS

What does a guide do?

A guide creates their very own microschool by inviting 5-10 learners from their community to join them to learn. We provide the learning model, training, and support needed to get started. The guide is responsible for:

  • Promoting a positive learning environment
  • Providing a safe & comfortable space for kids to learn
  • Recruiting students to attend their microschool
  • Helping fulfill our mission of Empowering Learners.

Guiding is an in-person, paid, part-time job. Specific hours (16-25/wk) and pay vary by state, grade level, and number of students in your microschool.. Additional responsibilities include:

  • Monitoring student growth
  • Assisting students in communicating with parents
  • Facilitating benchmark and state testing
  • Prepping for and attending additional meetings as needed (504, IEP, SST, etc)
