We are looking for an education major to assist our 3rd grader with the designed online FBISD curriculum. The job would include making sure he is logged in to the correct teaching sessions at the correct times, helping him print and upload assignments, and assisting him with questions.

We may also ask that you complete additional educational assignments with him outside of the required work, such as assisting him with reading. We are not asking you to build the curriculum because that would be provided by the school district.

You would have some ability to do your own school work during the day while my son is watching his teachers via video conference or while he is completing assignments. The job would be during regular school hours M-F at our home in Sugar Land.

My husband and I both work from home and could possibly work around your schedule if you have to attend some virtual classes during the day, but our preference would be that you schedule as many classes as possible outside of regular school hours. We will pay $20 per hour.

Memorial Area Homeschooling Help Needed
Posted: 08-7-2020

We are seeking a candidate to spend ~20 hours a week overseeing homeschooling for our soon-to-be 6-year old son who starts kindergarten in mid-August.

Experience with early childhood education (and especially teaching children to read) is a must. Our boys are all energetic, bright, sweet and eager to learn, and have all received great reviews from preschool teachers to date.

We would need you to come to our home in Hedwig Village, and would prefer someone who can commit for the full fall semester. Compensation to be discussed, but we would be willing to pay ~$40/hour for the right combination of experience/temperament.
