Job Description

A friendly Moscow-based family well known to the agency seeks an experienced and qualified governor to work with three boys aged 8, 10 and 12.

The children already speak fluent English at native level, as well as Russian. High-level tutoring will therefore be a core initiative of the governor’s responsibilities in this position. The governor should help the boys with the ISM (International School of Moscow) school programme (IB program). Tasks will include explaining and exploring the school programme, help with homework and ultimately preparing the boys for overseas study.

General academic support will also be required.

The candidate:

The candidate should have a PGCE or equivalent and experience tutoring or working in an international school. Additional experience working in a governor position would be a plus. Good references are essential. The candidate should have a thorough understanding of secondary IB, and be comfortable preparing the children for university enrolment overseas. Also important will be general English language interaction. The tutor may also have the chance to play sports or go on trips together, and should provide the charges with general support.

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, well presented, and have good moral values.

The family can offer accommodation, a driver and visa support for the right candidate. Their top priority is finding a governor/ tutor who can bond with the children and aid them in their learning.

The schedule for this position will be 5/2, with a final schedule to be decided according to the tutor’s availability and the children’s school timetable.

The family live near to Moscow.
