Hiring a teacher-companion from London Governess is the flexible solution for anyone needing to perfect their English or other skills. From students to busy executives, a teacher-companion provides skilled and convenient tuition. Lessons can last a day, an hour, or any length of time between, and can take place anywhere that suits you.
London Governess can provide teacher-companions to help improve your English or cover a wide range of other subjects. Teacher-companions are perfect for keeping children occupied, informed and educated at the same time.
A fun day out? Daily assistance? The choice is yours
Why not hire a teacher-companion to accompany your children on a day’s shopping or sightseeing? That way, you can be sure they are safe, while improving their spoken English in a fun and relaxing way. Alternatively, if you are a busy executive who needs to enhance your business or legal English or other academic skill, yet only have a short availability, a teacher-companion will meet you at the office and work with you. Furthermore, if you have just moved to the UK and need assistance in a supermarket, pharmacy or shopping mall to talk with salespeople, our private teachers will help. It’s a perfect way to learn the British language, culture and manners without stress.
Our teacher-companions are all highly trained and experienced teachers with outstanding patience, excellent communication skills, and true depth of knowledge in their chosen subjects. Whether readying yourself to sit an exam, practising for interviews, or just keen to progress in a particular field, a teacher-companion makes it easy to improve your skills and knowledge. Flexible and convenient, teacher-companions prepare lessons that are appropriate to the student’s age and experience, and adapt to your needs. Our teacher-companions have almost the same role as home tutors who provide help in various subjects. The difference is that our private teachers can work outside of the home and accompany you to places around the world. They can make your schooling, working, and learning easier and more relaxing, in a new environment.
Our teachers can teach their students English as a foreign language, construction terms, specific legal terms, or simply improve conversational English. They can also prepare the student for business or school exams.
The cost of hiring a teacher/companion
Teacher-companions can be hired full time or by the hour.
Hiring a teacher-companion full time for a 35-40 hour week costs £1000 – £1500 per week. More experience and more impressive or wider-ranging qualifications will command higher rates.
When hired by the hour, a teacher-companion costs £40-£100, again dependent on experience, qualifications, and subject.
How do we choose our teacher/companions?
In the same manner as our acclaimed private tutors, nannies, governesses and all other service specialists – through thorough examination of their documents, arranged interviews, and constant communication for additional information.
