About you!

We are looking for a lifelong learner who is passionate about teaching and connecting with others. Our ideal candidate will:

  • Be articulate and comfortable speaking in front of a group of 15 adult students.

  • Have experience developing curriculum, including class outlines and handouts.

  • Be a team player, have a can-do attitude, and value diversity in perspectives, approaches, cultures, and backgrounds.

The role

This is a unique opportunity to join The Works’ team and grow with us at our Capitol Hill location. You will be responsible for:

  • Developing class content and teaching weekly classes.

  • Providing a phenomenal student experience by fostering a friendly and welcoming environment that’s also conducive to learning.

  • Working with the owner of The Works to:

    • Adapt classes based on student feedback.

    • Develop new class topics, continuing to innovate and add new offerings for The Works’ community.
