Listen to Brynn, a sophomore at Stanford University, speak about her dream headline. If you, or your student, are struggling to answer this question Curious Cardinals is here to help. We believe in helping students find the spark that unlocks their potential, curiosity, or even willingness to go further than they can imagine on their own.
If you can’t explain it, then you haven’t understood it well enough. Teaching is an act of distillation, searching across the bounds of an idea and distilling it down to it’s essence. Listen to Benjamin, a sophomore at Stanford University studying Bioengineering, speak on the topics he’s passionate about teaching.
Sign up to share personal information, such as your university, major, the specific topics and subjects you are interested and qualified to teach. We use this information to balance demand for these subjects areas, while ensuring we have a diverse mentor base.
We also ask that you upload your resume to gauge for leadership qualities, authenticity, intellectual curiosity, and professional experience.
At Curious Cardinals, YOU can be that catalyst of inspiration in a student’s life. While we are so impressed by all of the shiny accolades on your resume, at Curious Cardinals we know there’s so much more to understanding you than what we can account for in bullet points on a flimsy piece of paper. Being a Curious Cardinals mentor is multi-dimensional. Yes, your accomplishments matter, but so does your relatability, vulnerability, commitment, and compassion. No number can measure that!
In this next phase of the application process, we invite you to share stories about yourself. We will be gauging for 3 qualities during this step: passion & curiosity, professionalism, and what your dream topic to teach would be.
For the live interview, we are more focused on how you teach and who you are as opposed to what you are teaching.
During this interview, we will be considering your screen presence, public speaking skills, how you break down concepts into concrete steps, and how you engage students in a way that maximizes their voice. We also use this live conversation to better understand what types of mentees you would be best suited to support and what subjects you would be best suited to teach!
