On-Camera Teacher



New York, NY, USA
Posted on Friday, October 21, 2022


Zearn is the nonprofit educational organization behind Zearn Math, the top-rated math learning platform used by 1 in 4 elementary students nationwide. Zearn Math supports teachers with research-backed curriculum and digital lessons proven to double the learning gains of a typical year of instruction. Zearn Math instructional materials - including 400+ hours of digital math learning - are free for teachers and families. Zearn also offers school- and district-wide licenses and professional development to support implementation. Everything Zearn does is driven by the belief that every kid can be a math kid.

Zearn is looking for talented and charismatic teachers to be on-screen leading Zearn Math’s video lessons. This is your chance to become one of the faces of Zearn, and to engage and inspire kids across the country. The time commitment is just 5 to 15 days a year, you can work around your teaching schedule, and you don’t need any prior on-camera experience.

If you are passionate about inspiring kids, excited to bring them joyful AND rigorous instruction, comfortable teaching math, and live within commuting distance to New York City, we want to hear from you!


This is a contract (1099) position. Zearn offers a competitive compensation, as well as the chance to positively impact the lives of millions of children. However, we are not able to cover travel costs.
