Job Description:

Do you really want to make a difference? Here is a chance to work in a school that is on the cutting edge of education and changes the lives of children with learning difficulties by actually changing the way their brains function!

We are currently looking for an educator to teach language arts with a reading and writing focus to elementary aged students for a 12-month contract covering a maternity leave.

If you are a certified teacher, early childhood educator, or certified Orton-Gillingham tutor and would like to work with us as we help students break free of their cognitive weaknesses, please email us your resume or CV with an introduction letter. We look forward to connecting with you!

We are looking for an exceptional educator who is energetic, intelligent, curious, compassionate, and creative to join us and teach reading and writing remediation at a variety of elementary levels. We offer our staff an inspirational, fun, and rewarding teaching experience within a culture where positive change is always possible and our compensation and benefits package is highly competitive.

Eaton Arrowsmith School, Vancouver, is part of a larger set of private schools and learning centers throughout British Columbia, Canada, and in Washington State that offer the Arrowsmith Program. The Arrowsmith Program is based on the science of neuroplasticity, which is the ability of the brain to essentially rewire itself with training. Supported by over 30 years of experience, the Arrowsmith Program links neuroplasticity and education by demonstrating that it is possible for individuals to strengthen the weak cognitive capacities underlying their learning difficulties through a program of specific cognitive exercises. This brings our students greater independence, increased cognitive, social, and academic abilities, and greater future career, school, and relationship options and successes they had never previously believed were possible. Students stay with us for 3 years on average to achieve the necessary amount of cognitive change. Visit our website at www.eatonarrowsmith.com to learn more and see if this is an educational setting for you.

As an employer Eaton Arrowsmith schools and centers offer:

  • the chance to make a significant and lasting difference in the lives of children with learning and attentional disabilities;
  • teaching in a team of inspired and fun educators with a shared purpose;

Applicants must hold training or certification relevant to this position (ie. BC Teacher certification, Orton-Gillingham Tutoring)

It is important to have:

  • Experience teaching students with learning disabilities
  • Enthusiasm and high energy
  • A good sense of humor, compassion, lots of patience, quick reasoning, and collaboration skills
