A flexible, kind-hearted family just outside of Las Vegas, NV is seeking a Montessori-focused, proactive private educator for their three children, aged 15, 6, and 3 years old!

 

This family has fostered a fun-loving, laid-back environment in their home. They are very goal-oriented when it comes to their children’s growth and education, while valuing the creativity and process of the journey. Their 15-year-old recently studied abroad and will be a sophomore in high school while their 6-year-old attends a private Montessori school. Their 3-year-old would be starting in primary Montessori classes this year and has a speech delay and attends occupational therapy. The family is eager to return to a hands-on, remote-less learning environment in the next school year and look forward to welcoming a private educator into their home to do so!

 

The ideal candidate for this position will be passionate about providing a flexible, hands-on learning experience for the children; experience working in a homeschooling environment and with multiple age groups is essential. The younger children have thrived with a Montessori approach to their education, so training and knowledge in Montessori or progressive education is required. Their 15-year-old is self-motivated and requires light guidance when it comes to keeping up with her schoolwork; finding ways for her to assist with teaching her younger siblings will be a big plus! A candidate who can provide and follow consistent structure surrounding weekly and monthly educational goals, while being flexible and creative with implementing teaching materials, will thrive in this role.

 

This is a full-time, live-out position of 40 hours/week with classroom hours generally falling on Mondays through Fridays from 9am to 3pm. The family is flexible on schedule and happy to discuss a schedule that works best for all parties. They are offering $30-$35/hour and are open to discussing additional benefits including assistance with relocation and healthcare, PTO, and sick days. The position will begin in late August 2020.

 

This position is open to all Adventure Nannies candidates who are legally able to work in the US and possess a valid driver’s license and passport. This family is happy to consider relocation candidates for this position. Out of respect for the privacy of the families we work with, we cannot provide any additional information about this position other than what has already been provided in the job description. If you are interested in learning more about the position, please apply!
