Amazing opportunity for a creative and engaging teacher/private educator in Santa Monica! Family with three children ages 5,7, and 8.5 has rented and outfitted a beautiful beach-side apartment as a little Montessori-style schoolhouse with robust resources – light board, computers, docuboard, projector, group learning, separate desks, etc. They are searching for a qualified teacher who will be able to facilitate lessons using the schools curriculum, encourage organic learning, foster curiosity, and encourage the children’s love of learning. The schedule is somewhat flexible – family can accommodate anywhere from 20-40 hours/wk depending on your needs/preferences. Rate is $60-$100/hr. Position starts ASAP and will go through the end of summer at a minimum with the possibility of extending.
You should be an expert at making learning fun and engaging, highly adept at using everyday moments to distill complex concepts, and be an educator who thrives on creative, outside-the-box thinking. The ideal candidate is kind, warm, proactive, creative, and inquisitive and has strong experience inside and outside the classroom with excellent references. You should have experience working and teaching children from multiple age groups and be extremely passionate about education. Must either be COVID vaccinated (or willing to get vaccinated as soon as you are eligible) and highly COVID conscious. This is the job you’ve been waiting for and it starts ASAP so don’t waste a minute – apply now!
