    Hello! I am an American single mother working on Isla Mujeres and I have a 14 year old son who needs a tutor. He could cross over to Cancun on his own and take a taxi to your home and back. He is enrolled in a U.S. based homeschool program that already has a set curriculum.

    Here is what I need:
    * English speaker who can teach him Spanish as well
    * 3-5 days per week from 9am(ish) to 3pm(ish). Hours are negotiable.
    * have private home with internet access (he has a laptop)
    * be willing to read the material, make lesson plans and follow-up with home school teacher.
    * be good at having ethical discussions and teach open points of view (based on the reading materials)
    * be willing to get out of the house and find social situations that can help build his social awareness (you will have a social allowance each week to play with)
    * be willing to deal with a 14 year old boy with bad self-esteem and who is socially immature
    * be a positive role model
    * commit to the position until at least July '09
    * be able to start right away

    He is a great kid once you get to know him :) Actually he is very intelligent and wonderful, but it takes a bit of time to get to know him.

    Please call or email me if you are interested or please pass on my information to someone who might be:

    If you contact the International American school they have a list of tutors- but I imagine it may be difficult to find one able to commit to the hours you require.
    Good Luck
