- $100 one-time fee paid at the start for planning the curriculum together
After I finish planning during the summer months, I will begin teaching your child with the following monthly rates.
- $360 a month if materials are provided for me, and I am teaching at client’s place
- $300 a month if materials are provided for me, and I am teaching online or at my house
- $460 a month if I have to provide all the homeschool curriculum materials
I accept cash or check, but I prefer to be paid online via my business PayPal account. You do not need your own PayPal account to pay me online.
*Note: My prices are subject to change; however, once you sign a contract, you are locked into the rate listed in your contract, and you will be unaffected by any increase in my listed pay rate.
My monthly rate includes the following
- 3 hour long sessions every week (the other 2 days of the school week, the student will work on assigned tasks).
- Time spent outside sessions
- adjusting lessons to accommodate student’s needs
- finding additional resources
- meeting with the parent as the co-teacher
- driving to and from location (if teaching at client’s place)
- writing feedback and assessing student’s work
- grading assignments
- Various costs I spend on the business
- ink for printing out materials
- tutoring resources and materials
- PayPal and website fees
The one-time planning fee covers the time I will spend writing lesson plans, creating assignments, and collaborating with you on the year’s curriculum before I begin the weekly teaching sessions.
Location of Sessions:
I can teach your student in-person at my house or your house, or I can teach them online. If you are interested in online homeschooling, check out the more information and FAQ session of my online tutoring page.
You, the parent, are still the homeschool teacher on record legally. However, you can chose to “outsource” some of the education to me, but you will be responsible for meeting all state requirements, including the storage of records indefinitely.
As a homeschool parent, you will still play a big role in the English curriculum, and since we are working together as co-teachers, we will need to have time to either meet or communicate as needed.
I will either use the curriculum you provide, or I will put together a curriculum (with your approval). If I am putting together the curriculum, I will not purchase materials until you agree to use that source. After we have chosen a curriculum, my role will be to teach, assign, and grade work (just like I would do as a public educator). However, you have the right as co-teacher to double check anything I have graded or select to take over the teaching of any concept. While I will perform work much like a public-educator, I will view you as a co-teacher; thus, I will communicate with you and be open to feedback and suggestions.
As an English teacher, my students called me the “fun but challenging teacher.” My students generally enjoyed my classes and thought I was fun and engaging, but they knew I had high expectations, and many cited my class as the first English class to really push them beyond just comprehending a text or completing an essay. Since English should be the study of critical and analytical thought, I first ensure students have mastered the basics, and then I teach them to really critically think, write, and read.. While several English teachers were ok with “the easy correct answer,” I pushed my students for the in-depth answer displaying critical thought.
