A confidential family in Palo Alto is seeking a full-time math tutor for their two children, aged 8-years-old. The schedule will be a guaranteed 40 hours per week and overtime at the statutory rate after this. These hours will typically fall over 5 days each week, including the weekend, e.g. Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, or whatever configuration works best for the candidate and enables them the necessary prep time/rest outside of the classroom. But there will definitely be more of a need at weekends since the children attend school during the week. 


Responsibilities will include building a strong interest in math, relative to physics, chemistry, biology, and computer science; building a solid foundation in logic thinking, spatial imagination, interpretation and reasoning; enabling the children to achieve top grades and confidently and successfully apply to the most esteemed private schools and Ivy League universities after grade 12 (e.g. MIT, Caltech, etc.), or other top science and engineering universities; involving the students in establishing learning goals by fostering ownership of their educational journey and providing coaching and encouragement as they progress through the goal setting process; teaching them to have patience during the learning process and building their confidence to overcome any challenges that arise. Candidates should be able to act as a role model for the students, teach effective learning habits, and play a key role as an observer, partner, mentor, and champion during the learning process. Other responsibilities will include managing the established team of tutors, so comparable experience is appreciated. 


Only those candidates who are fully COVID vaccinated will be considered. Candidates will be required to travel domestically and internationally throughout the year, so you must be able and comfortable doing so. The family are offering an extremely competitive compensation package to the successful candidate, commensurate with their experience. If you are interested and have a US passport, Green Card or EAC, please apply to KP426.
