A family located just outside of Washington DC is seeking a governess for their gifted 8-year-old daughter. The hours are generally M-F, 8:00-5:30 with occasional flexibility. This position could be live-out, or live-in; a basement bed/bath with a small kitchenette and separate entrance is provided.

The main aspect of the position is facilitating the education of the child; she is enrolled in a school that is currently doing virtual learning, and the governess must be able to work with her teachers to create a curriculum based around their requirements. The candidate should have a degree in education and will ideally be fluent in a second language that they can teach to the child. The family has been supplementing the school's curriculum with a Mensa program, so candidates should have experience with that or be willing to learn. 

Childcare duties are required as well, including things such as basic meal prep for the child, supervising hygiene, children's laundry, light tidying and organization related to the child, and driving her as needed. The family does have a puppy, and the candidate must be comfortable with pet care- specifically overseeing the child and teaching her to care for the puppy. 

The ideal candidate will be neat, educated, engaging, and someone who can take charge and run the day-to-day. If you're interested in this position, have a degree in education, and are legal to work in the US, please apply online to AS033.
