Bilingual governess is a native speaker or a fluent speaker of two languages. Based on your requirements, we can provide variety of language combinations, but mainly concentrate on those fluent in English and one other language. A governess is a woman employed to teach, tutor and train children in a private household. In contrast to a nanny, she concentrates on teaching children and their educational needs only, not on meeting their physical needs. Her charges are of school age, not babies.
Our bilingual governesses are native or fluent in French, German, Spanish, Mandarin, Italian and Russian languages. We are also able to provide governesses speaking different languages based on your needs and preferences.
We provide British and bilingual governesses for our clients based in London and overseas. Our governesses are highly demanded within large and wealthy households, places like Saudi Arabia (Saudi royal families), UAE, Russia - Moscow, Paris, Geneva, Monaco, and others, where parents prefer to educate their children privately at home rather than send them away to boarding school.
Only the best governesses with recognised teaching diplomas are recruited and supplied to our clients.
