Do what you love, in an awesome environment!

Excited Nerds!

We named it Nerding for a reason. This attracts those nerds out there who love to learn. You will get to do what you love, which is teach kiddos who are excited about the class topic! Class sizes are max 20 nerds. Each class is staffed with a teacher, an adult assistant, and volunteers who float between classes depending on tasks.

Great Schedule!

Summer classes are half day Mon-Fri – AM Classes: 9-12, PM Classes: 1-4. You do not have to work every week. Schedule around your summer plans. Most teachers teach the same class for 3 or 4 weeks. Teachers can also teach half day and then assist half day to maximize summer hours. Up to you. 

Great Pay!

We have the highest compensation in our sector. 
We make the pay simple. A class is Mon-Fri 3hrs each day. Here is the pay per class:

Teachers = $600 per Class (~$40/hr)
Assistants = $225 per class (~$15/hr)

Summer Teaching

The details!

Ideal Candidates

You really DO NOT need to be a tech or science expert! You DO need to be a great teacher and generally awesome human. We can get you up to speed on our class curriculum in just a couple hours, but we certainly can’t teach you to be an amazing teacher in that time. This is why we hire certified teachers. You are already awesome.

What will you teach?

Choose from our many different class titles. It depends on what type of class sounds fun for you. You don’t need to be an expert in any of the related STEM fields the classes are based on. All of our classes are introductory and geared for grades 1-3 or 4-7. We have tech (computer/ipad) based classes as well as hands on building, STEM challenge, and experiment based classes.


You are in good hands!! Niecy Westmoreland will go over the class with you. It only takes a couple of hours to learn the curriculum. We have plenty of support materials and video examples.

Once you know a class you can teach it multiple time this summer…and next! Our teachers often return the next summer and teach the same class. 


  • Grades: Classes are geared towards grades 1-3, and 4-7.
  • Capacity: Each class will have a max of 20 Nerds with 1 Teacher, 1 Teacher’s Assistant, and possibly 1 Volunteer. 
  • Class Length: 1 week, Mon-Fri. Same classes are available more than once over the summer. For example, we might run 3D Printing class 5 times. The same teacher usually teaches all 5 classes.
  • Class Times: AM Class runs 9:00am-12:00pm. PM Class runs 1:00-4:00.
  • Lunch Time: an assistant or other staff member watches the kiddos.
