Governess/ English tutor in Cannes, France
An experienced governess / English tutor is required for 5-year old twins (a boy and a girl) from 15 June to 15 August 2018, with a possible extension in Cannes, French Riviera, France. The children go to an American school in Switzerland (since September 2017) but they have a difficulty in speaking and understanding English.
Their mother tongue is Russian. It is essential that the governess knows how to teach a proper British pronunciation, however the right candidate does not necessarily have to be a native English speaker.

This is a live-in position, the family can rent a flat for the governess.
