For me to accept a governor position the below conditions must be met
How much do you expect to be paid? I expect to be paid in GBP and for a full-time working week (35 hours) £1000 (net). I also expect accommodation to be provided.
Do you speak Russian or Ukrainian? Sadly, I don't speak a foreign language, but this could be an advantage for your child. 1, nothing will be able to be translated, and 2, it will give them a chance to teach me something.
What age-group do you work with? Minimum age is 10 years old, but I work best with teenagers.
Will you cook and clean too? No. My job will be to improve and develop your child's English. I will basically be a 'friend'.
Can we talk? Of course, I'm more than happy to talk to you in-person, over the phone, or via email. I'm also happy to speak with your child. You can get in contact here.
Do you have the right to work in Russia or Ukraine? I am a British passport holder which means I will need a visa to enter Russia. All visa processes and expenses will need to be taken care of on your side.
Do you have any experience as a governor? No, but I do have over 10 years of English language teaching experience, specialising in Russian and Ukrainian speakers who are learning English, including kids and teens. My character and personality has always allowed me to create a great rapport with younger people creating a trust and openness between us.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I am a big fan of football, so I enjoy watching football. I also trained to become a football coach. I support Arsenal. I used to play, but I'm getting older... and fatter... and the recovery time takes at least 2 days after a game of football. Aside from football I am keen on film and TV as well as travel just like everyone else. You can ind out more about me here.
Me at work...
That's the back of my head. I was teaching a group of Ukrainian students how to know when you are pronouncing the long E sound correctly when saying sheep & ship or beach and bi.... ;)
That's me talking with students about the different interests and events that happen at different stages of life. Age is always an interesting topic to talk about.
A lesson about fashion. You can see I dressed up especially for the lesson ;)
