A British family is offering a numeracy and literacy tutor $180 an hour to help their troublesome children…
A family in the UK has posted an advert to Tutor House requesting a numeracy and literacy tutor for their two children. The job requires the successful applicant to work 12 hours a week, but there is one small catch – the children have scared off seven nannies in just two years and are described by their parents as ‘troublesome.’ Are you up to the job?
Not An Easy Task
The parents were extremely honest about their children’s behaviour in the ad, warning potential tutors of what they will be faced with. “Previously tutors have been subject to physical fighting, swearing and shouting, and they’ve been known to play pranks like throwing flour and eggs,” they wrote. “To put it in perspective, we’ve had one tutor last only two weeks because he was locked in the garage for two hours and had another call our children ‘the devil reincarnated'” Despite this, the parents believe that the situation is not entirely their children’s fault, and that they simply haven’t found the right person for the job. We wonder why…
Two Different People
Reflecting on their children’s behaviour, the parents say they are two different people when they are at home with them. “I believe previous tutors have failed because they haven’t taken charge of the situation,” said their father. “They’re pretty well behaved with us!”
These parents sound like they might not be willing to face the reality of their children’s behaviour! Even though the hourly rate is undeniably attractive, we doubt there will be many sensible tutors that will be signing up to take on this challenge.
