Learning Model Built for Student Success

Proximity Learning uses its Enriched Live Instruction Model (ELIM) to make sure that students in your district are getting that best instruction possible. The goal of ELIM is to stimulate a classroom environment through ALWAYS live instruction from a teacher via streaming video.

The Proximity Difference

Live, Synchronous Instruction
We livestream our certified virtual teachers right into your district classroom. Your dedicated team works with your district to fit with your school’s bell schedule and other needs.
Built by Educators for Educators
Our partnership directors are past superintendents, principals and teachers who understand the harm that long-term vacancies can have on students.
Certified Teachers in Virginia

Virginia educators looking to teach online can teach in our partner schools across the country over livestreamed video. If you have a standard or professional license in Virginia, Proximity Learning can support you through the license reciprocity process to work in states where this is required.

Proximity Learning teachers can improve their use and understanding of technology, test their creativity, and live as digital nomads through virtual teaching.

Proximity Learning teachers are not only certified, background checked, and experienced, but they're also dynamic, engaging, and caring. Learn more about our online teaching jobs in Virginia.

Teacher shortage in Virginia

Virginia teacher shortages have grown in the past few years. For example, Charles Pyle, director of media relations with the Virginia Department of Education says, “The pandemic has exacerbated teacher shortages, and the ability of school districts to hire qualified teachers.” Virginia estimates it has upwards of 1,000 teacher vacancies in 132 districts.

In April 2021, Frontline Education surveyed 1,200 district leaders to discover that two out of three respondents reported having teacher shortages in their schools. This is a record high since launching the survey in 2015.
