A friendly Dubai-based family well known to the agency seeks to hire an academic coach/governess with experience tutoring maths and science.

The client is looking for an English language governess with a background teaching maths and science.

The family has 4 children and the parents are looking for a governess who will be entrusted with the pastoral care of children.  In addition, paying particular attention to academic and personal development.

The governess will need to be a good team player as the house is fully staffed and the family already employs an English governess. The family want the governesses to work together to ensure the children are motivated to learn and are meeting their academic targets. The governesses should aim to provide a stable basis for the children to develop academically. Therefore, candidates who are open to a long-term placement with the family are desired.
