Private Educators – because education isn’t (and shouldn’t be) one size fits all.
Westside Nannies believes that education isn’t one size fits all and is proud to support parents who prefer a unique and customized in-home educational plan.
Our private educators come from a variety of backgrounds and include credentialed teachers, homeschool teachers, tutors, and college-educated nannies with a passion for education. Candidates offer a wide-range of educational styles including Montessori, Waldorf, Classical, and Unschooling and are adept at customizing their approach to suit your needs or following your unique education plan.
Families who travel frequently, are touring, or those who frequently work on location can especially benefit from homeschooling. Private educators are able to travel with the family for extended periods of time, allowing the children to stay with the parents while they are working away from home.
Traveling and homeschooling can provide exceptional educational benefits – there is nothing compared to learning about history where it actually happened or seeing the painting in person that you studied about the day prior. Our private educators are able to research your travel locations in advance and plan a customized educational itinerary for the children making the most out of each location.
Private Educator Rates
Our placement counselors will work closely with you to develop a competitive compensation package based upon your family’s needs. Rates for private educators vary greatly depending on the candidate’s experience and education as well as the number of children, grade levels represented, duties, preferred schedule, and the level of travel and flexibility required in the role (if any). Current rates for private educators are between $40-$100 per hour.

What Our Families Are Saying
“The professionalism that has been demonstrated by your agency is remarkable. I have worked with top names in every industry and was blown away by the service - I never knew finding a nanny could be treated like the purchase of a luxury product. Kudos to you, WN”
“When my maternity leave ended and I was about to leave my first baby at home with a nanny, I was honestly petrified. You made this such a safe, easy process and for that, I am forever grateful.”
“Thank you for placing Stephanie with us! She has been absolutely amazing and I don’t know how we ever managed without her. The girls love her and not a day goes by without Stephanie planning a fun art project or an exciting outing. She also jumps in to help me with dinner and organizing - a true gem. We’re referring everyone to you! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!”
“I couldn’t be more pleased with the service that Westside Nannies provides. From their prompt initial response to working with their staff to find the ideal nanny for our 2-year-old son…it was all such a pleasure! When Brooke walked in, my son, who normally doesn’t get excited about mama leaving, couldn’t stop saying “bye mom, bye dad” and waving at us. She even put him to sleep the first day and I honestly didn’t think that could happen – simply amazing! I recommend Westside Nannies to everyone with kids!”
“Westside Nannies has some of the most professional and highly qualified nannies I have ever seen. They are organized. sensitive to employers and a joy to work with! I refer to them all the time and use thir services myself.”
