Job Description:

Starting June 18th, a lovely family located in Timber Creek, Northern Territory requires a teacher/home tutor for their 3 children. This role requires a commitment until mid December (6 months).


The position will be teaching Grades 6, 4, and Pre-School. The children are a 11 year old female and 10 year old and 5 year old males.  The children are enrolled with the School of the Air and the curriculum and workbooks are provided. There is also good support provided for the teacher through the School of the Air program.


Duties for this role include:
- Preparing and organising the weekly program and schoolroom
- Supervising the children's work and help as required (but do not do the work for them)
- When possible include younger children (preschoolers) in school activities (e.g. sport, art, drama, etc.)  
-  Attend and assist with school sporting events and mini-camps


We are looking for someone with teaching qualifications who has experience working with children around these ages. Good computer skills are needed as most of the classwork is done online. This person must be prepared to be flexible with work hours, be neat and tidy and have strong English. A driver's license is also essential.  


The position is based with a family who run a busy tourist business on a main highway in the NT. As such, there are always plenty of people around to interact with and the business has a team of 10-15 people (both backpackers and Aussies) who also live on-site. This is a full-time position offering a weekly wage of $700. Working hours will be 8am - 3.30pm, 5 days per week. Accommodation provided in a self-contained apartment. Food will be included for $60 per week (3 meals a day).


This is a fantastic job with a wonderful family.  There is plenty of opportunity for socialising and exploring the area outside of work.  We have received great feedback from previous teachers.
