GRAND CIRCUS

AFTER HOURS REACT INSTRUCTOR

 

At Grand Circus, we train students for jobs in the fastest-growing tech companies. We know that anyone can be a developer, so we’re passionate about educating career transitioners in coding and other skills that lead to high-growth careers. 

 

WHAT DOES AN INSTRUCTOR DO? 

Grand Circus instructors help change students’ lives by sharing their developer skills and expertise. Instructors work closely with students and a team of Grand Circus teaching assistants, program managers, and the Director of Learning to ensure that students have all of the technical skills they need. Instructors are responsible for the technical know-how of their students; it is the role of the instructor to help students get the React skills that they will need to be successful on the job.

 

In action, this means that instructors are responsible for: 

● Leading daily classroom activities from technical lectures, to labs to review sessions 

● Providing feedback to students 

● Responding to student feedback 

● Responding to student inquiries on Slack 

● Communicating with the team about student progress 

● Providing real-world examples and context for lessons 

● Building a supportive classroom environment 

● Sharing passion and enthusiasm for development

The React workshop is scheduled for 4-week sessions, Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 6:30 - 10:30 pm Eastern Time. All classes meet via Zoom.
