In-Home Learning Guides for Preschool through Second Grade Students, Germantown Friends School

Posted by Germantown Friends School on September 8, 2020

GFS is seeking qualified adults to work in person with students in preschool through second grade. Learning Guides will work side-by-side either with one child in his or her home or with a “pod” of no more than five children in a pod host’s home. The Guide’s job is to assist the child(ren) with online learning with the goal of making sure each child is grasping the concepts being taught.

The position is for 30-35 hours per week, Monday-Friday, for the full school day (approximately 8:00 a.m.- 3:00 p.m.). A parent or guardian will be in the home throughout the day. The pay is $500/week. Guides are welcome to work for additional hours for which parents will pay the guides separately.

Guides will support students in person with all aspects of the learning process, including logging onto the Google Classroom, navigating activity links, submitting Flipgrid and Seesaw assignments, assisting in viewing asynchronous videos, and generally ensuring that a student understands the concepts being taught. Additional duties might include going on a walk outside or engaging in other fun and enriching activities. Learning Guides are not permitted to cook, clean (other than to keep the student’s supplies and work space neat and organized), or do any household chores.

Families and Learning Guides will work out a mutually agreeable plan for addressing all COVID-19-related mitigation strategies, including masks, hand-washing, workspace hygiene, social distancing, ventilation, and any other considerations mutually relevant to them.
