Job Description

About SchoolHouse

SchoolHouse is a new, innovative education startup that helps families to form Learning Pods, and matches excellent teachers with those Pods. A Pod is a group of approximately 4 – 8 students, of the same or similar grade level, who are learning, growing, and socializing together. Pods run for up to five hours per day, five days per week. This is a great option for both families and teachers alike, as it allows for in-person instruction to happen throughout the upcoming school year in a safe, and contained environment. 

Current Locations Include: 

  • New York (Brooklyn, Hudson, Long Island, Manhattan, & Westchester)
  • Northern New Jersey
  • Connecticut

With more locations coming each day. Check out our application for the most up-to-date listing. 

Also, if you don’t see your location listed, you can apply to join our Teacher Marketplace which is a platform where you will create a profile sharing your experience, grade-level preferences, and location. Then, families who are interested in creating a Pod in your area can select you as their teacher. 


What We Have to Offer

By joining SchoolHouse, you’ll be able to realize all of the promises of teaching. First, you’ll be able to teach in-person, in a small, contained environment, which takes your health and safety into account. You’ll also only be working with a small group of students, which will allow you to really differentiate your instruction, and personalize your teaching to the individual needs of each student. And while you’ll be leading your Learning Pod on your own, you can feel confident knowing that you have the support of the SchoolHouse team behind you.
