Pros and Cons of parent vs. paid tutor led pods
We have a group of 3 families considering a pod and discussing whether to do parent led or hired tutor led pod. The kids are remaining enrolled in school and will follow DL program so mostly need to just supervise, help answer questions and enrich education as needed. All parents work from home and have very busy work days but have flexibility to take a day off and make up hours at night/weekends. All are neighbors and have same level of risk tolerance/exposure with regard to covid, kids are friends and similar grades, so it seems to be a great fit. Parents can afford a paid tutor but seem to hesitate at the complexity of finding a good one, administrating the arrangement, and becoming an employer. The cost is affordable but still a consideration as most instructors in the area ask for around $80-100k total salary for the year (even divided 3 ways it is a lot!). We are learning toward parent led and have the 6 individual parents alternate days (roughly 1 day/week per parent) as it just seems easiest and the parents all are comfortable teaching if needed, but most of the pods seem to be formed with paid instructor so we decided to think about it a bit more. If you are forming a pod, are you doing parent led or instructor led and what were your reasons for going that way?
