    Mr jubilee and I want this job. Unfortunately, we are not free to up sticks at the moment as his mother is due another course of chemo.

    There are other tutor posts for a family in Moscow and for a family on a yacht (Europe) advertised on TES Jobs and the pay is around £5k per month!

    £72k for "full time support after school" - does that mean to keep an eye on them and help them with their homework?

    Someone pointed this out at school a few weeks ago. I imagine it being a gilded cage with "difficult" employers and children and the possibility of losing your job on a whim - or am I just being pessimistic?
     
  4. It means do their homework for them. I don't know if you'd have to do maid duties as well. They probably have one of those already.

    Just a month on that pay rate would earn me more than I get all year from supply teaching at present.

    Can you not go and do it for a month then? It'd give you the rest of the year for your family duties!

    Only problem is Geneva is so bloody expensive £72k wouldn't go that far!

    Elderly relative has 18 weekly chemotherapy sessions booked starting next week and we are the only family available to look after her.
