This is an instructional role for a dedicated teaching professional whose main assignment will be teaching Mathematics to students in Standards 6-12.

What is Avasara Academy?

Avasara Academy is a nonprofit institution located in Lavale Valley, just outside Pune, India. We are an all girls school with a mission to empower girls of promise to lead lives of distinction and impact. Avasara Academy currently enrolls 275 students in standards 6-11 and will eventually have an enrollment of 500 students in standards 6-12.

Students are selected to attend the Academy based on merit alone. They engage in our specialized curriculum that combines the academic excellence of the Cambridge curriculum with a focus on leadership, entrepreneurship, and Indian studies. Students participate in hands-on leadership and real-world experiences culminating in either an entrepreneurial business or social initiative that serves as a platform for their leadership development. Avasara will continue to nurture these leaders throughout their lives by connecting them to powerful networks of people and capital that can facilitate large-scale change. Avasara Academy, therefore, is not just a school but a life-long network that will cultivate innovative, entrepreneurial leaders.

Teaching Mathematics at Avasara Academy

In this new age of technology and information at our fingertips, memorizing procedures and formulas is not as important as it once was. Because of this, even though teaching mathematical procedures is important, it doesn’t have as much value as it did in the past. At Avasara Academy, we want to embrace the future by teaching maths in a way that will add a high value to students’ education. We expect our teachers to be able to teach in the following ways:

  1. Be able to help students develop a solid understanding of mathematical concepts that can be used in and out of the classroom
  2. Be able to help students to learn procedural maths so that they will be able to solve mathematical problems and do well on standardized exams
  3. Be able to help students develop skills  that can be transferred to other situations such as designing, modifying, being creative, and analysing
