A devoted, passionate, and well-traveled family of five is seeking a patient, flexible, creative, and upbeat private educator for their 6-year-old boy and 3-year-old twin girls. Based in Dallas, Texas, they hope to find a candidate who is passionate about early childhood education to nurture the well-rounded development of their three growing children as they embark on future adventures as a family.
As contemporary art collectors and the heads of several companies, this bustling family has struck a lovely balance between their work and family life and are very devoted to their children and their education. Currently in kindergarten and Pre-K, their parents have noticed that the children are already surpassing and disinterested in their traditional school-structured education. Additionally, as a family who is passionate about traveling, entrepreneurship, and art, they want to provide the children with an education and environment that is not restricted by the school’s schedule. They want their children, and thus their future private educator, to travel with them as they are able and experience and learn from the world in their own eyes as a family.
The perfect candidate for this position will not only be passionate about working with the parents to build an educationally-focused curriculum, but also passionate about the children’s development as a whole. Having the patience to work with young children as well as the creativity to discover learning opportunities from their surrounds and instill a love of learning in their children will be essential. The family also employs a nanny and private assistant, so a candidate with a collaborative mindset will thrive in this environment. It is important to note that their 6-year-old was recently diagnosed with dyslexia and is currently working with a specialist one on one. He is passionate about learning and loves art, and the ideal educator will focus on providing him attention and collaborating with his specialist. The family loves to travel, from London to New York City to Japan, as well as to their second home in Idaho for the summers, and would be excited about a candidate who is excited to accompany them for some annual trips and tutor their children with inspiration from their travels.
This is a 40 hour per week, live-out position with the schedule generally falling on Mondays through Fridays from 7 am to 2pm. Having the flexibility to occasionally provide overnight care with advanced notice when their nanny is unavailable will be greatly appreciated. The family is offering a generous annual salary depending on experience and education. They are also offering generous paid vacation and sick days and a vehicle will be provided while on duty. They hope to find the perfect private educator to join their family as soon as possible!
