    Private Educator
  • Overview

    A family based in Laguna Beach, CA is searching for the perfect private educator to join them at home and on their worldwide travels and to enrich their 3.5-year-old daughter’s education. From Laguna Beach to Indonesia to Italy, the perfect candidate will be excited about other cultures, languages, loves the outdoors, and will have an adventurous and active spirit. More importantly, someone who has extensive educational training and is an experienced private educator is reliable, and has a passion and dedication for their child’s education will be highly valued in this family.

     

    Both parents work from home, which means home could be anywhere around the world for this family! They are very active and enjoy snowboarding, surfing, biking, and any other sort of outdoor activities you might find yourself doing while living life in the mountains or on the beach or on the lake or anywhere else their travels might take them. Someone who is active and has a passion for the outdoors will fit right in with this family. The family is eager to find a long-term fit who values an active and self-starting lifestyle as they do. This position will suit a candidate who has a high level of flexibility, is a self-starter, and will be able to create and implement a core curriculum for the family’s child that is fun, cool, and engaging. The family wants the flexibility to eventually place their daughter back into a traditional school setting several years down the road, based on the needs of their daughter.

     

    The ideal educator, beyond proven classroom/private educator experience, should be comfortable with light household duties, such as picking up around the house, transporting their daughter to and from activities, and the occasional grocery run. Someone who is comfortable preparing gluten-free and vegan meals for their daughter would be a huge plus! This is a trilingual household and their daughter is growing up learning to speak Spanish and Italian and the family would love to find someone with proficiency in one or both of these romance languages or a desire to learn! 

     

    This is a full-time private educator position that is live-out while in Laguna Beach, CA, and live-in while traveling. They are happy to help with housing costs for a candidate who is not local to the Laguna Beach area. The family would ideally like to have someone in place by the Spring of 2019 and are flexible to bring someone on sooner if they found the perfect fit. They are offering a competitive hourly compensation of $25-35/hour dependent on experience, as well as several paid sick days and accrued vacation days.

     

    This position is open to all private educator candidates who are experienced private educators and possess a valid driver's license and US passport. This family is happy to consider travel-ready, adventurous, and self-starting educators from all over the US.
