certificated experienced science teacher looking to host 2 students for hands on learning
I am an experienced credentialed science teacher currently working part time in Berkeley. I hope to host two 2nd-4th grade students at my home for hands on learning and enrichment opportunities in the afternoons for a total of ~12 hours per week. They will be joining my own two second graders as well as being in the same house as my 8th and 9th graders. I look forward to teaching cooking chemistry, gardening, outdoor adventures, as well as assisting with their core academic subjects.
A bit about myself: I am a Cal grad who worked as a professional baker and outdoor adventure guide before starting teaching. I have taught at all levels k-12, mostly focused in math and science. We have four children and live on ~1/3 acre which hosts chickens, quails, bees, a huge vegetable garden, and dozens of fruit trees. I support a hands on, kinesthetic teaching style with a growth mind set approach to learning.
25$/hour, sliding scale negotiable for families in need
