A highly qualified after-school governor/ governess is required to care for an intelligent boy aged 8. This lovely family is based in the North East of England.
The main focus of the role is on developing the boy academically, socially, and intellectually. This will include taking appointments/swimming lessons, relaying with tutors/sourcing them, supporting homework and extracurricular activities. The boy has an interest in chess and so some knowledge of the game would be a bonus.
In time, the role would be expanded to prepare for entrance exams for school.
The boy is very curious and inquisitive but can be stubborn so the governess or governor should be able to engage him in activities and teach him good work ethics and time management.
