Screening process

Screening process

We know how important this decision is for your family, your happiness and your child’s future. Thus, we spend more than any other organisation time filtering our applicants, separating the diamonds from the rough, so that you can rest assured your home-school teacher or tutor is extraordinairy!

To prove how seriously we take our job, below you will find a simplified overview of our bespoke, unique candidate selection process. When it comes to your family, we can never be too detailed, so only about 5% of applicants will ever become a part of ours.

As proof of how powerful our process is, ±85% of our client families will hire a teacher from the first selection candidate we have chosen for them.


We screen hundreds of CVs daily, looking for solid, well-rounded backgrounds, at least 1 year of tutoring/teaching experience and an A aggregate or above for subjects they will be teaching

On average, only 1 in 10 applicants move to the next phase

Psychometric testing:

We look deeper into the minds and behaviours of our potential homeschool teachers, to test their levels of assertiveness, dependability and self-discipline

In order to better understand their Family Match Potential, we also look to understand each homeschool teacher’s levels of introversion/extroversion, patience, drive, self-confidence, leadership and stress-tolerance


In the third phase, now that we understand more about each human being, we interview the , using structured questions created by a psychologist

Here we look to get a firmer grip on their underlying motives, abilities, passions and suitability for different learning dynamics.

Roughly half of applicants at this stage get our stamp of approval

Reference checks:

We mine all past employment. A single bad reference is enough to cut representation

The strict adherence to the above process means that every applicant has not only been vetted and cleared as an exceptional candidate, but we know each of them well enough to match them perfectly with the right family.

Final Checks:

Upon offering a candidate a position, we move into the final phase of our screening process. This includes a Criminal Background Check and ID/Work Permit Verification.
