The Ideal Sitter for this Job

The ideal tutor for this family is someone with experience tutoring these ages, who can really engage them with their work and keep them focused and on task. Someone who can make learning fun and exciting for them as they've been home for so long. Both kids really thrive with one on one attention, so someone who is good at multitasking and empathetic listening and communication is essential!


The core schedule is 3 hours/day for 4 days/week in person. They are flexible with the days and hours to an extent. It is 12 hours/week guaranteed to start with the potential to grow in the future depending on school.

About the Children

boy, 7- He can be very silly. He's really smart. He wants to be engaged and wants to talk. He's intellectual. He sometimes need help with the social piece - how to engage in speaking with a new group of friends. He's a good listener and does well with boundaries. boy, 4 - He's a really happy, silly little guy. There's no jealousy between the the two kids. They get along really well!


The tutor's responsibilities would mainly be helping the kids with their dedicated 3 hours of learning a few days/week. The tutor would be primarily focusing on the 3rd grader and occasionally assisting the younger boy, guiding them with the provided curricula. They will also have their full-time nanny there, so this would be school-focused.
