Frequently Asked Questions
A private educator implements curriculum in your home or virtually for one or more children and is typically able to simultaneously work with children of different grade levels, alternating 1:1 time with each child. For a higher hourly rate, a private educator can create his or her own curriculum tailored to the needs of your family but can also help carry out existing curriculum set by the school or parent. A private educator can also function like a tutor and assist for just an hour or two at a time for families who are just needing limited educational support.
Families looking to hire a private educator will go through our Placement Services and pay a one-time placement fee. The client will then be responsible for paying the private educator directly for his or her services. Hourly rates vary depending on the number of children, grade level, if any additional care is needed, and curriculum planning. This can range from $20-$50 per hour. This is the recommended service for families who want someone 30 hours a week or more or a long-term implementation of a structured curriculum.
For families who need less than full-time instruction, we recommend using an agency-employed homeschool helper through our Flex Services. In this case, you would pay our agency directly for any hours you use and it’s totally flexible. The cost for this service is $30/hour with a 2-hour minimum. The educator will be equipped to teach up to 5 kids at a time.
We are requiring all of our in-home educators through our Flex Service to be either a certified teacher OR have 2 years experience in a classroom.
With our Flex Service, our instructors can teach up to the 8th grade in instruction. For grades and curriculum higher than 8th grade, we would recommend the Placement Educator Service to ensure you’re matched with someone who can provide ongoing full-time curriculum.
You may elect to provide your own curriculum or one of our in-home educators can create a curriculum for your children. It is recommended to go through the Placement Educator route if you’re looking for long-term curriculum implementation.
There is a 2-hour minimum that must be scheduled with our in-home educator through our Flex Services. With a placement, you may determine the amount of hours each week.
Great idea! The hourly rate will stay the same at $30/hour. There will be a nanny surcharge of $4 per each additional family. The billing of the services each week would belong to 1 main family. Each additional family would need to sign a non-member waiver.
Once you register, we can get you on the schedule to work with one of our homeschool helpers sometimes within a matter of days. To Hire a Teacher through our Placement Services, we recommend that you initiate the registration process approx. 4-6 weeks in advance.
Register with our agency and pay a $65 initiation fee to get the process started. That initiation fee includes an in-home consultation. Our Care Director will come out to your home, sit down with you and get to learn more about your unique needs and preferences. We will help connect you with a private educator that is the perfect fit for your family.
We are currently providing private educators for the Dallas-Forth Worth, Phoenix, and Tucson areas. Please inquire internally if you’re outside of those areas to confirm.
