Teacher Time to Go, the local remote tutoring service, is facing intense demand as parents rush to hire teachers to home school their children during the lockdown, writes Laura Meckler for the Charleston Gazette Mail.

When the coronavirus pandemic started to spread in the spring, many families faced difficulties with transitioning to remote learning.

If the lockdown continues into the fall, parents like Carrie Pestronk of Lower Merion Township want to make school-from-home as normal as possible.

As a result, Pestronk, who has two sons, is trying to recruit a handful of other children and a teacher to teach from her basement.

Many other parents are doing the same thing, creating a high demand for Jennifer Shemtob, owner and founder of Teacher Time to Go. Shemtob is offering a package that includes three hours of tutoring, four days a week, with a discount if two families join together.

“What I’m seeing is families just wanting that reassurance that their kid is going to get support one way or another,” she said.
