Governess/Tutor Required

For G2 in Dalian, China

£800-1,000 npw

A lovely family residing in Dalian, a modern port city in China, is seeking a fluent English speaking Governess/Tutor for their daughter who is nearly 2 years old and to help the mother to learn and improve her English. The family has another baby boy due in April, however they have a nanny to support most of the nursery care of the children, therefore this role will be mostly with an educational focus for the girl and mother. They hope to move to the UK when the girl is around 10 years old, so they are passionate about learning British English from an early age and to be prepared for the British school curriculum.

The ideal candidate will be an active and energetic lady who has at least 3 years of experience as a governess and/or tutor, and who wishes to stay with her next family on a long-term basis. A university degree, childcare qualification or TEFL would be preferred but not essential.

The main goal is teaching the little girl through interactive play, reading, singing songs and conversation once she starts talking. At the same time the governess will be helping the mother to learn and practice her English. The family has a fully staffed household, so a team player is essential. If the candidate speaks a little Mandarin that would be wonderful but not essential. The family mostly travels throughout Asia and are open to the governess travelling alongside them or taking her own holiday during those times.

The family had an English governess with them for the past three months, however, she had to leave due to unfortunate personal circumstances. She is happy to provide the candidates with her reference about working with this family.

This is a live-in role in the family’s home. A separate bedroom and bathroom will be provided with adequate privacy. The working days will be 5 days per week with negotiable hours (up to 50 hours per week).

The salary on offer is £800-1,000 per week depending on experience and qualifications. A visa will be provided after a successful probation period.

This role is to start ASAP.
