At home tutoring/Schooling

My husband I are looking for a part-time education or graduate student to tutor our 8-year-old son. He will be entering the 3rd grade in Medford this Fall. If you have special education experience that would be great. Our son is on an IEP, math being his hardest subject. We would be looking for you to assist our son with remote learning M-F. Hours are TBD because we have not gotten his school schedule yet. 

Although I (his mom) will be home during the day, I am working full-time. We will be looking for someone to start on 9/16/20, the first day of school. If Medford does the transition to Hybrid we would still be asking for help with pick up and homework after school. Again, until we receive a schedule from Medford Public Schools I am unable to give a number of hours per week. 

  • 1.     We would like for the tutor to have their own transportation
  • 2.     The tutoring will occur at our home in Medford 
  • 3.     We would like references 

If interested, please contact Mark and Louise Pacheco @ lpacheco5582@gmail.com & mpacheco1026@gmail.com
