Utah/Mexico - Licensed Teacher Needed for For Private Family - Jan-June 2018

Posted By: ESL101 <[email protected]>
Date: Thursday, 18 January 2018, at 10:11 a.m.

A private family is seeking a Teacher for their two children. There is a significant element of travel involved in this role; the position is based in the U.S. but will involve extensive time in Mexico. Applicants must be comfortable with teamwork as well as working in a variety of locations. The role involves home-schooling two intelligent and inquisitive children, a boy who is 7 and a girl who is 6. The role suits an energetic, enthusiastic, fit and inspiring Teacher.

This is a great resume builder for a recent graduate with a B.Ed looking to gain experience before seeking a permanent role for the 2018 school year.


- Fluency in English is required, Spanish speaking is preferred.

- Education Degree and/or K-6 State Teaching License (Recent graduates welcome to apply)

- Able to start work in January 2018

- Legally able to work in the US (no visa sponsorship available)

The ideal applicant will have a thorough understanding of educational theories, especially student-centered theories. The successful applicant will have some experience with curriculum design, be able to identify the best parts of a range of curriculum in order to co-create a customized program, and have the depth of knowledge and understanding offered by top level private schools.

The teacher needs to work with the Lead Tutor to keep the children’s learning on par with, if not slightly ahead of their peers in private schools. The Teacher must have an understanding of record-keeping in case evidence of work covered is required. This should include any observed strengths and weaknesses in both children as well as recording of completed work, projects, vocabulary learned and any excursions or activities undertaken. There is considerable scope for themed learning in this role, but it needs to be well planned and accurately recorded.

The Teacher should have a wide range of extracurricular skills and interests they can share with the family and children. This can include anything from playing a musical instrument to recreational archery, expert knowledge about art history to a talent in cartoon creation.

Being comfortable in nature – from the mountains to the beach – is critical as the family has a very active lifestyle that involves skiing, hiking, biking, swimming, etc. The successful candidate should be upbeat, energetic, kind and caring. They should be a natural communicator, able to explain concepts simply and clearly, and able to encourage a love of learning in both children. They should be interested in the world around them, and their enthusiasm for any given subject should be infectious.

This role requires a resourceful, intelligent and knowledgeable educator who is relaxed and easy-going with a sunny disposition on the one hand while firm, encouraging and directed on the other. He or she should set a good example for the children through their behavior and conduct as much as through their academic abilities. Although the family and working environment may be relaxed compared to formal schooling, and even by comparison to many private positions, it is essential that the Teacher remain professional at all times and respectful of the family’s privacy.

If interested in this role please send your cover letter, letter resume and phone number as well as your current location and a convenient date/time to call to: [email protected].

Please include the word “Utah” in the subject line of your e-mail. Qualified applicants will be contacted within 1 business day.
