A native-level English speaking governor (preferably speaking British English) with teaching qualifications is required for a full-time position working with a VIP Russian family living close to Moscow in Nikolina Gora.
The family are looking for a fresh, fun and active English language governor to help their twins (boy & girl aged 8) to improve their English.
Above all the right governor should be a well educated, kind, fun person and well experienced in a similar role. The ideal candidate would be already located in Moscow and would have some knowledge of the Russian language to communicate with the other staff in this fully-staffed household. Moreover, the candidate should be prepared to work with the children on sport, behaviour, general etiquette and language.
The two children are kind and friendly. They speak fluent Russian and English already, and the family would like the governor to plan a small syllabus to advance the kids’ language education. In addition, the ideal governor will be able to make lessons fun, be a friend for the kids, and involve them in music, sports, arts, or games like chess. Computer literacy would also be a huge plus.
Ideally, the family would like the governor to work 5/2 with flexible days off, and most weekend days will be working days. No the less, the salary for this position is high (from 1300gbp/ week) and includes accommodation, which the candidate should be willing to organise himself (as well as transport to work). However the candidate could live-in if he wanted, as there is space in the family home. The family are based in Nikolina Gora, Rublevka district, outskirts of Moscow.
The role includes travelling with the family during the summer and school holidays. For instance, they often travel to France/Italy, Greece, and sometimes to Asia. A Russian visa can be paid for by the family.
