Position: Learning Specialist
Department: Learning Resource Center (LRC)
Supervisor: Director of the TASIS Learning Center
A general overview of position:
The Learning Resource Center (LRC) at The American School in Switzerland (TASIS) is seeking a full-time Learning Specialist for the 2020-2021 school year. The ideal candidate will have an advanced degree in Special Education or a related discipline, and previous experience as a Learning Specialist.
While we are seeking a professional who is able to provide learning support to students with a range of diagnosed learning differences, we wish that person to have specific experience supporting Lower, Middle and Upper School students with challenges in Math. Other desired experiences include the ability to interpret psycho-educational evaluations, writing learning support plans, communicating effectively with teachers and parents, and providing faculty development workshops.
8:00 to 17:00 Mondays through Fridays (with an hour lunch break). We are a boarding school, however, and there will be the need for earlier mornings, evenings and weekends on occasion.
Perfect fluency in English is required, while the ability to speak (or learn) Italian would be a plus.
