Become a Teacher-companion – Contact London Governess and Get an Interesting Job
Our clients hire teacher-companions to perfect their English and other skills. If you are willing to teach out of the classroom, this is the perfect opportunity for you. From young children to busy teenagers or business people, a teacher-companion provides skilled tuition in a convenient way. Your student will likely be unfamiliar with many British things, such as language and customs. In this role you accompany your student through their day, whether in their office, shopping, sightseeing, or out in a park. When your student encounters new things or hits language barriers, you step in and provide on-the-spot tuition in a real-world teaching situation. For the student this is a much richer learning experience than through books in the classroom.
What can be expected from an employer?
As mentioned before, London Governess clients are VIP and high-net-worth families, which means that you will receive many benefits in return for your hard work and dedication: on-time competitive salary, respect for your agreed working hours, a chance to meet people from all around the world, and to become more acquainted with new cultures.
The cost of private tutoring
Tutors can be hired by the hour.
When hired by the hour, a tutor will be paid £30-£60, again depending on experience, qualifications and subject.
How to apply for a tutor position?
We would like to guide you through every stage of the process so that you know what will be expected from all of us during this period:
The first stage is to fill in the form on our website – our HR department will reply to you and request you send relevant documents (CV, cover letter, DBS check, education diplomas and certificates, and references) as well as to arrange an interview. You can apply whether you have seen an interesting job position or wish to be included in our database and considered for all relevant future vacancies.
After this, we send your CV to our clients and if they like it, we will arrange an interview with a possible employer.
We often recommend a trial because it is very important to meet a family before you make your decision. A trial could be one day or one week – just long enough for you and your prospective employer to get to know each other. Trials are fully paid.
The last stage is when the client and you make your final decisions. Both of you should take your time to consider all aspects before committing to your future collaboration.
