Learning Pod Facilitator

Cardinal Education

Cardinal Education is seeking a Learning Pod Facilitator to support our team at our offices in Burlingame and Woodside, CA! We are an extremely dynamic and collaborative company focused on providing top-tier expertise in admissions and tutoring to families.

Distance learning has been a difficult change for families. As COVID-19 cases in the local community continue to increase, opening up campuses this fall has become impossible for many schools. To combat the lack of a proactive group learning environment, Cardinal Education is seeking people to help facilitate our independent learning pods. Each learning pod consists of 2-6 students in grades 4 through 12, and the pod Facilitator administers their independent learning, facilitates study room policies, and monitors students’ learning progress. Pods will take place both in our offices in Burlingame and Woodside and also in client homes. We highly prefer candidates who are able to work up to 30 hours per week during business hours.

If you are interested in working in the education industry or in supplementing your income with meaningful work, this is an excellent opportunity for you!
