Travel-Ready, Inspiring Private Educator Needed in Mill Valley, CA

 

An on-the-go, kind-hearted family based in Mill Valley, CA is seeking a travel-ready, creative, and engaging private educator for their two school-aged children for the 2020-2021 academic school year!

 

With their home base in the beautiful Bay Area, this family loves to travel and spends a large chunk of time on the east coast in Sag Harbor, NY. Both their 10-year-old and 12-year-old are currently distance learning through their schools this year. The children thrive with friendly, patient, and engaging teaching approaches. The family is eager to find an educator who can support the children academically, provide an inspiring and enjoyable learning environment, and who can take the classroom on the road wherever their travels lead them!

 

This position is ideal for a candidate who is passionate about not only being a hands-on educator but being an inspiring role model as well. Creativity will be deeply valued in this home to develop a learning environment that is supportive and interactive and inspires the children’s genuine curiosity to learn. The children thrive through project-based, inquiry-based learning that focuses on their strengths and passions, so a candidate with a specialized background in Montessori, neurodivergent learning, or other modalities will be a big plus! An ideal candidate will be excited to implement the current curriculum provided by the children’s schools and also to collaborate with the parents to select and/or develop hands-on lessons and future curriculum to inspire experiential learning. The family hopes to find a candidate who is a true team player, can become an integral part of their family team, is travel-ready, and will be willing to pitch-in as needed as an inspiring role model for their children!

 

This is a full-time, live-in position guaranteeing 40 hours per week, with additional hours available if desired, and a general schedule falling on Mondays through Fridays. Scheduling flexibility will be appreciated. Live-in accommodations include a separate guest house with full kitchen when in Mill Valley, as well as private accommodations provided while traveling. The family is offering $35-$40+/hour DOE in addition to relocation assistance, assistance with healthcare, PTO, and sick days. Driving will be required for this role and a vehicle will be provided while on duty. The family is seeking an educator to begin ASAP through June 2021, with potential for another school year if desired!
