Banyan Global Learning’s world culture virtual programs are booked on demand by schools in North America and around the world.

 

We seek camera-ready, dynamic and charismatic TEACHER TOUR GUIDES who live in world cities with strong cell networks. Candidates must have a vibrant on-screen personality, clear English abilities, basic educational chops and solid tech skills.

  2. Pitch virtual field trip ideas that fit those formats
  3. Develop plans for approved trips and shoot backup video
