Part-time school year help in Somerville

We are looking for a part-time education student or graduate to help us continue remote or hybrid learning this fall and winter. We are two full-time working from home parents with a rising Kindergartner and Third Grader. In the spring, we had a preschool teacher come to our home from 8-12 each day to play with the kids and assist and supervise some of the remote learning time with our son (then in 2nd grade). The kids loved having her here, and we loved being able to get a few hours of mostly uninterrupted work in. We are flexible on times and could do with 4-6 hours per day, perhaps not every day, as our jobs can be relatively flexible.

We are looking to pay between $20-30 per hour, commensurate with experience.

Our house is between Tufts campus and Teele Square. We have a yard, and my husband and I work upstairs. An ideal candidate would love to play pretend games, enjoy arts and crafts, read a lot and have patience with the hiccups of remote learning. Both kids are excellent at playing, and our son could sit and read for hours.

Please contact Callie Wiser at callie.wiser@gmail.com
