FAQ and More

DETAILS

FAQ

  • Can you match my family with remote or online teachers?
  • Absolutely. Contact us and let us know what you need.
  • Are teachers primarily interested in online or in-person instruction?
  • Most teachers are interested in both. We are committed to helping parents source structured, individualized support for their children regardless of delivery mechanism.
  • What are your fees?
  • View our service options or contact us to learn more. All fees are paid upfront with no ongoing retainer or residual fee.
  • Do you take a percentage of the teachers’ earnings?
  • No. 100% of what you decide to pay the teacher goes to the teacher.
  • Can you help us negotiate a rate with the teacher?
  • No, you should plan on negotiating directly with the teacher. However, we can help give you a sense of what the market looks like.
  • Is the teacher an employee of Selected?
  • No.
  • What about COVID-19?
  • We strongly recommend that you and the teacher come to mutual agreement on our provided Health and Safety Protocol template that defines health and social behavior practices and protocol during your engagement. While the risk of COVID infection cannot be eliminated during any in-person instruction arrangement, the goal is to reduce the risk significantly.
  • What is the Health and Safety Protocol template?
  • It defines health and safety protocols that you and your teacher mutually agree to abide by, customizable by you.
  • What if I don’t hire any of the teachers you introduce me to?
  • A needs and preferences assessment and an ideal candidate profile (i.e., job description) will be created by Selected so you can continue to use in your personal search, if necessary.

    We feel confident that the teachers you’ve been introduced to will serve you either now or in the future. You may purchase additional packages to connect with more teachers.
  • Does Selected conduct background checks?
  • For select packages, Selected will conduct background checks for your finalist candidates.
DETAILS

Additional Fine Print

  • No ongoing or additional fees beyond the initial upfront fee
  • You determine and negotiate working arrangement (e.g., schedule, wages) directly with teacher
  • You assume all responsibility of the supervising and monitoring of teacher
  • You assume all responsibility of the health and safety of your family and children
  • The teacher is not an employee of Selected
  • Background checks are not always 100% accurate and may not reveal a person's complete criminal history. No background check should be relied upon to determine a candidate’s complete criminal history or suitability as a teacher
