My name is Hannah Ye and I am a staff member in an organization named Beyond the Five. Our mission is to provide a high-quality education to anyone and everyone, regardless of their background.
For the 2020-21 school year, we are making a large change in our methodology: We are creating free, online, self-paced classes for students to access! This past year, we have only taught AP classes live. However, we are also diversifying our subjects to non-AP areas, so we are glad to have classes of all sorts to tend to all student interests! Some examples of classes being formed right now include Introduction to Arabic Culture, Mythology, Abstract Mathematics, and College Applications. (Many more on the way!)
More than just the class itself, students are able to interact with other bright minds and become knowledgeable in the subjects they take. As of 2019, we have a 100% pass rate on all AP subjects taught! We hope to continue this trend as we become more accessible to students.
As of now, there are a total of 41 classes being formed (14 AP, 27 non-AP). We are looking to eventually cover every AP exam! Our current team of approximately 20 instructors are working very hard to create classes, but we need extra help.
Are you very knowledgeable in a subject and like creating curricula, lessons, assignments, and exams? Do you enjoy spreading your interests to other motivated students? If so, then becoming a Beyond the Five course creator would be a perfect spot for you :)!
Beyond the Five (BT5) course creators create these online courses for student use. Typically, the average course takes around 75-100 hours of commitment to create. Additionally, there are leadership opportunities available within the organization, as well as the opportunity to form connections with current college students that work as course creators!
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any suggestions, questions, or if you are interested in creating a class! Thank you so much for reading :)
