Private Educators

Due to the school disruptions caused by COVID-19 and uncertainty around the 2020-2021 school year, many families are considering private education as a short-term or long-term solution for their families. We recommend families who are hoping to have a private educator in place by fall of 2020 to begin the search process as soon as possible to ensure they have ample time to find the ideal educator for their family’s needs!

Please note that we are currently working with families who are launching relocation searches for full-time educators. If you are seeking a teacher who is already in your area or a part-time teacher, we recommend reaching out to local agencies or tutoring companies to assist you in your search.

Our private educators come from a diverse range of educational backgrounds and are experienced classroom teachers, homeschool teachers and tutors. They are familiar with a variety of progressive educational styles including unschooling, Waldorf and Montessori and many are experienced nannies as well. Whether your family is interested in collaborating with an educator to design and implement a curriculum, already has a curriculum picked out, or are interested in pursuing worldschooling or another alternative to traditional education, one of our private educators will be ready to step in and give your children one-on-one education in an engaging and fun setting.

Our Private Educator search includes:

  • A dedicated Placement Counselor to assist you through the interviewing and hiring process
  • Optional in-home consultation
  • Personalized job description and active, creative recruitment
  • In-depth educator profiles tailored to your family’s specific needs and preferences
  • Extensive candidate screening process including reference checks, employment verification and Internet screening
  • Detailed reference check reports for candidates moving to interview stage
  • Private educator interviewing and training guidelines
  • Assistance with scheduling and salary negotiations and employment agreements as needed
  • Assistance with state-specific employment and tax laws as needed
  • Background checks and education verification (Note: For our private educator searches, background checks are ordered once an offer of employment has been extended and accepted.)

Our private educator placements begin with a $1,000 launch fee. Our one-time placement fees vary depending on package level and geographic location.
