Meet Our Teachers




Our strict 4-tier hiring process means that only the best teachers make it onto the Proximity Learning team. In addition, each of our teachers are certified in both their state as well as their subject matter.




Each of our teachers are trained to work with a diverse population. Our educators work under lead teachers and are provided with teaching mentors to help them grow and succeed throughout the school year.




Our teachers boast multiple years of experience, holding at least 5+ years working in both brick-and-mortar and online classrooms. This experience helps our teachers understand how the classroom environment works from all angles.




We require our teachers to hold a minimum of a graduate degree, and many of our educators hold their doctorates in education. This guarantees that your students are taught by the very best.
