An active and outdoorsy UK family is looking for a qualified and experienced tutor to homeschool their 5 children.
The children have been homeschooled for the past 5 years and the family seek an active and engaging teacher to join them, ideally long term.
The students are aged 12, 10, 8, 5 and 5. The family will also employ a teaching assistant, or are open to a couple taking on the role if they feel that they are suitable candidates for the position. They are also aware of the possible need for subject-specific tutors to be involved in a supporting capacity throughout the week.
The family live on a farm and the family members are very active, so a candidate with a love of the outdoors would be a perfect fit. A candidate ready to embrace the outdoor life on the farm is needed. There is lots of available space for lessons and the mother will also be happy to provide support when needed.
PGCE qualified candidates are required and any previous experience in a homeschool setting would be greatly welcomed. The family want the children to succeed academically but also put a large focus on pastoral and social development. As such, time should be allocated each week to social events with other homeschool children in the area, and trips and excursions to support their learning. The family need an organised and proactive candidate who would be happy to take the lead in the logistics of the homeschooling program. Extra time for planning and preparation will be given. The candidate has room to be creative and innovative to help the children stay enthused with their education.
The family would like the governess/ governor to be a warm and positive individual who can be a strong role model for the children as the progress through their schooling.
The family has homes in London and Scotland and these could be used as a base for educational and pastoral trips.
The working week will be Monday – Friday, and the family provide a separate apartment in the area.
A confident driver is needed and the family will provide access to a car when required.
Salary £52000 per annum + (UK required holidays and sick days) – need to check.
This is a great opportunity to work long term with a lovely family in a picturesque part of the UK.
Interviews with selected candidates to take place immediately with the role to commence ASAP.
5 days a week for 40-50 hours per week with weekends off
