    What are the jobs like there?

    How much do these jobs pay?

    There is often an army of nannies involved, but their salaries are not as high as tutors. A good nanny (or "Manny") can earn £150k. They use different agencies for recruitment, but I could give you more details if you're interested in a pay rise?

    Assuming you're a qualified teacher it would make more sense to become a tutor as you could triple your salary.

    Recent experience with A-Level and GCSE is usually preferred as most elite families are looking for a rigorous curriculum. IB is less desired but I'm sure it's not a deal-breaker.

    I would be interested in more information if that's ok.

    Could you start a conversation as I cant.

    Or you could message here

    By his own admission Dumbells could not cut it as a teacher in the UK or Spain but has found his level in Africa. If Search will accept Dumbells is it really the sort of agency a good teacher would want to be involved with?

    Still trolling i see @4019775 .... still bitter about not being able to get a job in a seriously low level school in Nigeria? My career is going great, you on the otherhand seem to be very unhappy with yours.

    Such a shame;)

    Doesn't that mean you need to be proficient in pretty much all the major subjects though... Maths, English,Science plus the other electives such as business, econs, add math etc? When I looked abit into it I didn't bother going forward with anything because I can barely count as it is and most adverts required IG Math/Add Math
