Their ideal candidates not only have experience with this age group and in an after school capacity, but are lovers of and experienced in teaching or tutoring math and science (hence the higher rates!).

It's $35-45/hour gross DOE in tutoring/teaching for 25 hours/week guaranteed ($875-1125/week gross), plus a metrocard, PT, paid sick days, and paid federal holidays.
The Ideal Sitter for this Job
Are you upbeat, energetic, and creative? You will definitely need energy and a positive personality working with three school aged kids, so if this comes naturally to you, it's even better! A creative mind who can really engage the kids and connect with them is the goal here. The family is looking for someone who wants to be there and wants to bond with them. Are you a team player who works well with others and thrives in a team environment? You'd be working alongside mom, another after school nanny, and their housekeeper to help keep the afternoons and evenings running smoothly. Communication and flexibility is key in this environment as everyone on the team really works together and splits the responsibilities of the afternoon amongst themselves, sometimes switching with someone else from picking up one child to taking the other to their activity or playdate. Someone who can be organized and on top of things, while flexible and communicative will do best in the role. Are you academically driven yourself and have experience tutoring and guiding school-aged kids to success? Being organized with both the learning/homework aspect of the role and the daily and weekly tasks of the position is key. While tutoring experience is not required, it will certainly be a huge asset to the role as they kids academics get more and more challenging with each passing year. Not only is helping them with their daily homework important, but also teaching them good study and time management skills. Preparing them for the next phase of their academic career is so important at this stage of their lives. this would include helping them go online and keeping their schedules and school work planned and managed. A particular interest or experience in tutoring/teaching Math and Science is a huge plus! There may be some travel to Greenwich, CT, or The Hamptons if the kids are out of school or on break, but the SmartSitter would be compensated accordingly and have their own accommodations! Being comfortable with travel is important for these instances.
The core schedule is Monday to Friday, 3-8 PM. Additional flexibility to stay for a later night on occasion is a huge plus!
About the Children
Girl, 14- Going into 9th grade this year. She is on the advanced track in math and loves technology, robotics, and coding. She likes to spend time with her nanny and this person is a real confidante for her. Boy, 12- As he gets older, his school work is only getting more challenging. He really needs someone who can support him and help him meet those obstacles and surpass them! He is such a sweetie and can be very sensitive; he is so loving and affectionate. His talent is in his fine and gross motor skills. He has low visual adaptability, so his school modifies the way he does some of his work. He does horseback riding and swimming. He is so imaginative and loves to create stories. He is so attuned emotionally. He gets very attached to people and creates strong bonds with them. Boy, 10- He's a sweet kid who is also very academic and a very funny kid. He is cheeky and has a great sense of humor. He brings a lot of laughter and joy into their home. He is quite athletic and a pure force or nature! He is particularly academic and quite strong in math. He loves to be challenged and have his boundaries stretched in a playful way.
Arriving to help mom and another nanny cover the after school routine including picking up the kids at their schools, taking them to activities, bringing them home and helping them with their homework, helping get them fed, then ready for bed, and prepping for school the next day. Getting them outside more when they have down time and of their screens even if it's raining...this is where that creativity will really come into play!
At the moment, only their youngest isn't vaccinated, so having a new nanny who is vaccinated is super important for the family!
