Tutoring and Job Opportunities

Tutoring/Job opportunities will be posted for one month.

The School of Education shares position announcements as a service to our students and to our partners in the field, but does not endorse specific positions.


Position: Occasional Babysitter 

Looking for care for two homeschooled boys, ages 8 and 7 located in Williamsburg. I need roughly one day a week, about 2-3 hours. Days and hours may vary depending on need so I can go to doctors appointments during business hours. I am mostly flexible on days but prefer a 1pm-5pm (ish) window of availability as some of my appointments, while mostly local, may take me to Newport News. Pay is $15 an hour and the position is starting in October.

Position: Nanny/babysitter

I'm a faculty member in the Psychological Sciences department. My family is currently seeking a part-time nanny/babysitter to look after our two children for the fall semester (starting at the end of August). We have a 1.5yo girl and a 5yo boy. For the fall, childcare duties will primarily be for our daughter. Our son will be in kindergarten then and will only require occasional care on school breaks.

We are looking for someone who can work for approx. 12 hours a week (the specific number of hours can be discussed prior to starting). As I'm teaching in the fall on Tuesdays and Thursdays, we are looking for someone who will be available on those days.

We'd ideally like someone who has experience caring for younger toddlers/babies. We're located in Williamsburg (near the Target on Monticello). The rate of pay will be ~$15/hour.

We'd like someone with reliable transportation, and who is fully vaccinated against Covid-19. If you are interested and qualified, please email me at xiaowen.xu@wm.edu with an updated resume, and we can set up a time to meet (via Zoom).

Ideally we're looking for anywhere from 25-40 hours a week.  We are looking for someone who is fully vaccinated.
