Missionary kid tutors are needed so that parents can focus on their duties as missionaries with LBT and have the peace of mind knowing that their children’s education is in good hands. For many parents, teaching their children is a full time job in and of itself so having a tutor is essential for them to be able to continue other aspects of their ministry.
The primary function of a missionary teacher/tutor is to assist missionary parents with the education of their children. They do all the things any teacher would do, but without the structure and support of a school setting. Some tutors may travel from village to village helping parents with their children's correspondence courses. Others may have one family to work with all the time. Some mission teachers work in a mission boarding school. As with any mission assignment, flexibility is of the utmost importance.
