    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at NYC Teaching Fellows (Brooklyn, NY).

    Interview

    1. Apply online
    2. Phone interview
    3. Selection day
    4. Email of acceptance or denial

    The whole process took time but they fellows were knowledgeable both during the phone interview and selection day. Selection day you taught a lesson and we’re able to reteach a part of it after learning a new teacher quality from what the fellows taught.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    They had us do a two minute lesson, and then practice how to get kids to pay attention and do their work--though the tone of it was more like how to get them to "sit down and shut up." The communication between the organization and the interviewers was bad, as I was three times told I would be taking a math assessment on the same day (I didn't), but was never told about the impending GRE requirement nor was someone who already had a teaching certification informed they were wasting their Saturday.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at NYC Teaching Fellows (New York, NY) in February 2019.

    The process is somewhat tedious. The application questions where in-depth and required extensive thought. The Telephone Interview is 30 to 40 minutes in length and is administered by a New York State Licensed Teacher.

    Interview

    They had me do a demo and take a test. It was stressful and I wish i had received more feedback. Afterwards we took a test in a big ole room with lots of people. It felt very impersonal. The process was overall adequate.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NYC Teaching Fellows (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview consists of an online part and in-person. Online you have to answer some questions and in person you have to do a 5-minute lesson plan. After you are done with your lesson plan you are given feedback from the interviewers. They then ask you to re-do two minutes from your lesson plan using their advice. At the interview you should be yourself and follow all the rules. Listen carefully to all of the directions given.

    Teaching Fellow Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NYC Teaching Fellows.

    Interview

    The interview process was long but not difficult. A lot of the process seemed redundant and drawn out. You go in, get paired up with a group of other teaching fellow candidates and deliver your lesson plan to that group of people. Then, you get separated into another group, this is the group where your lesson plan delivery actually counts and you are assessed on it. You then get a lesson taught to you, you receive criticism on your lesson and have to reteach a portion of it. Easy but redundant.

    Interview

    Interview was the whole day. They give you the chance to practice with people from your group. Then they make the list of who will go first etc. You only have 5 mins to present the lesson to other candidates. Have your material prepared. The interviewers are just on the back typing they will only ask one question.
