Lenz 家庭诚征不晕船的老师 (要会说中文)The Sunday Times 6 May 2012

这 Lenz 姓家庭,决定带孩子乘坐私人游艇遨游世界,因此要把老师请到船上来,当成一家人,陪孩子读书,让孩子享受航海乐趣,又能获得良好的教育。

主人 Chris Lenz, 45岁, 加拿大富豪,在香港以经营餐馆致富 。

他的广告刊登在名大学网站上,如牛津、剑桥、伦敦大学学院 (UCL) 和哈佛。今天,英国琐记 也顺便帮他找老师。

根据《星期天泰晤士报》(The Sunday Times) 的内文,现在有一种行业,就叫 “super-tutors” ,专为 super-rich 服务。这些 “super-tutors” ,每小时收几百英镑,一些老师则好像维多利亚时代的保姆 (傅母)一样,几乎成了富豪的家人。(Some get paid hundreds of pounds an hour and others are retained long-term, living almost as members of wealthy families in the style of a Victorian governess.)

报道说:The Lenz family wants a tutor who can teach in both English and Chinese, with a special emphasis on the geography and history of the places being visited. And who does not suffer from seasickness.

(老师要能教中文和英文,擅长历史和地理,不得晕船。)

报道说:获聘老师薪金如下:

  •  £19,000, (离岸,不受税法限制,应可免缴税),即约 £24,000 需缴税的英国年薪

你晕船吗?

祝你面试成功!
