A friendly Moscow-based family seeks an experienced and qualified governor to work with two boys aged 6 and 8.
The children already speak intermediate level English as well as their native Russian and French and Italian. They have had a nanny from New Zealand before but the family feels it is time for them to have a ‘big brother’ role model and English tutor.
The charges are keen on anything technical, from computers to building and designing things. They also like history and are keen to be up-to-date on what is going on in the world. They read newspapers and are interested in science, experiments, nature and geology. The right candidate will encourage them in these interests and will ideally have at least A-level maths to support them with maths when required.
The perfect candidate for this position will have a high level of English and be a qualified teacher, experienced working in a family or ‘home environment’. Personal qualities would ideally include being fresh and energetic, but also firm and fair and able to build a warm connection with the kids. The tutor should be calm and have strong moral values, a role model who can work with the kids on language, manners and brotherhood.
The family travels often; if the candidate has a vaccination recognised in Europe that would be beneficial, although sometimes the family may choose to travel without the tutor.
The family can offer accommodation, a driver and visa support for the right candidate. Their biggest priority is finding a governor/ tutor who can bond with the boys.
The boys attend school until approx 1:30pm. Work days would therefore be based on 4 hours per day after school and some time on Saturdays for a total of around 30 hours per week, to be compensated at a rate of £1200/ week negotiable.
The family live in Serebryanniy Bor in Moscow, nearest metro – Polyzhaevskaya
