Teacher for homeschooling

Central Asia, Education, 1-11 months, 12-23 months / Job ID: 1492

Several homeschooling families work in this capital city. Although there are English international schools in our city they are out of reach financially for many expat families. Homeschooling takes up a significant proportion of a partners time and limits how much they can engage in work outside the home.

We are looking for a teacher to provide help to home-schooled families. The children range from K to grade 9. There could be 1:1 tutoring or teaching small homeschool co-op groups in 1 or more subjects (depending on need and applicant skill set). You may be able to help multiple families during the week or to work with 1 larger family. All curriculum materials are provided and no prior formal teaching experience is necessary.

A suitable applicant would have a vision to support likeminded families in our city through assisting with the homeschool education of their kids. They would understand the unique lives of TCKs and have a desire to see them thrive while living abroad. They would see themselves as an English-speaking mentor and teacher who could significantly influence and encourage them in these formative years. A wide variety of applicants could be considered and specifics made to fit them.
