A family based in central London seeks a career governess/ governor and tutor to work with a 6-year-old boy. The boy speaks English well and is attending school in the UK. The family would now like to introduce the boy to French or German as his father is Swiss.
Time will be spent working with him after school through the week, plus one or two weekend days. The family would like the governess or governor to liaise with his school and tutor him to ensure that he continues to progress well. The boy is active and busy during the week and the governess or governor will be expected to oversee and coordinate his extracurricular classes and activities.
At weekends the boy needs help to catch up on his homework and there will be time to arrange some more educational activities that will be fun and stimulating to partake in together. The charge is very interested in board games, cars and golf. Overall he is a happy and well-mannered child.
The ideal candidate will have at least 3 years of experience working in a similar role and will be open to working with the family long-term. Good references from previous positions are essential.
When the family travel they would like the governess or governor to accompany them, so flexibility and an adventurous nature are key for this role. The family spent a lot of time in the holiday home in Turkey.
The family is easy-going and flexible, and well-motivated to provide their son with a stable and long-term governess/ mentor. The family has employed a governess in the past and live in a staffed house.
