Itinerant teacher

Itinerant teachers (also called "visiting" or "peripatetic" teachers) are traveling schoolteachers. They are sometimes specialized to work in the field of special education, providing individual tutoring to students with visual or hearing impairments. Historically, the term has also been used to describe traveling teachers in regions without formal schools, as well as the sophists of Ancient Greece, the disciples of Jesus of Nazareth, and possibly even Jesus of Nazareth himself.
