Private Educators

How do we define a private educator?

A private educator, often referred to as a private tutor or personal teacher, is a professional who provides individualized instruction and educational support to a learner (or learners) outside of the traditional classroom setting.

Many of our clients elected to hire these individuals and form “pods” during the 2020-2021 COVID-19 pandemic. Now, we see clients hiring these individuals when they are interested in forming homeschooling groups. We think this is a great way of homeschooling kiddos while providing access to socialization and community.

We list these positions at $30-50/hr in annual compensation depending on the needs of our clients and scope of duties. When regular traveling is required, consider the higher end of the range.

Our private educators usually work for 2-3 years on average. We also have clients who hire someone for one semester at a time. These shorter term placements are often seen if children are struggling in school or wind up needing to take a semester off for medical reasons.
