PRIVATE EDUCATORS (TEACHERS)
Education is not one-size-fits-all. Hiring an in-home, private educator is a great option for many children and their parents. Our private educators work closely with you to ensure your child’s specific needs are met and that they’re set up for success. During Covid-19's pandemic, you might want to consider hiring a teacher to come into your home for a few hours a day and have them teach the subjects they would otherwise be learning at school. More and more parents are realizing that you can hire a licensed teacher, to come into their home and teach their children. Sometimes this teacher is also a nanny and will care for the other non-academic needs of your children as well.
Your Family—Your Choice
While every family’s preferences are unique, certain homeschooling approaches have become very popular. For some families it’s the Montessori or Waldorf approach that works best, while others are drawn towards the child-lead method of Unschooling and Multiple Intelligences, and others prefer a contemporary spin on classical education. In fact, most families don’t follow one style or method exactly. Instead, they work closely with their Private Educator to determine the style and curriculum that fits their family and eventually end up with a method all their own. You determine what works for you, we’ll find the Private Educator to fit the bill.
Not Your Typical Teacher
Our Private Educators backgrounds are as diverse as those they teach: some are seasoned classroom or home-school teachers, others are experienced tutors, and then there are those stellar professional nannies who have a passion for teaching and a degree in Education who could be the perfect match for your family. It’s about their background, sure. But it’s also about chemistry, and the perfect resume doesn’t mean the perfect fit. Rest assured, we’ll find the teacher who will spark a love for learning in your child.
