Travelling Tutor: Dubai and worldwide during school holidays Salary: 1000GBP net+ per week negotiable Ref:DTutor
A high profile family residing in Dubai are seeking a mature, well-educated tutor to work with a 13 year old boy after school and one day during the weekend. The young man attends an international school but has been lagging behind his peers with his test results at a much lower standard than expected. He attends a good international school and it is hoped that he will end up attending a prestigious university either in the UK or America in the future. My client is seeking a well-rounded educator/tutor, either with a teaching qualification or with extensive tutoring experience who primarily knows her/his way around the British curriculum. The subjects that the young boy is currently struggling with are English comprehension/writing and the Sciences- his Maths results are better than the other Science subjects. The parents recognise that it may not be possible to have a teacher/tutor who can cover both subjects in detail, however preference will be given to tutors who have some experience in both areas.
There are other children in the family with separate nannies but the parents are keen for the young boy to take responsibility for himself and not use the tutor/teacher as a crutch. The pupil, himself, is keen to improve his scores at school but has a tendency to leave things to the last minute and become overwhelmed as a result. A candidate who has the gravitas to elicit respect but also hang out with the student in their down-time would be ideal. There will be no nanny-type duties in this role. The family are very respectful of the employees who work in their household and will treat the tutor with regard. They see the position lasting one year initially with the possibility to renew.
Start date: end of May/Beginning of June. The tutor will travel with the family throughout the school holidays. Separate accommodation will be provided for the tutor near the family home and when travelling. Please attach a cover note to your resume and email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
