Bilingual Governesses






Affiliated with:


nanny agencies





Bilingual 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.

We provide British and bilingual governesses for our clients 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 for overseas positions.



  • One of the main governess duties is teaching and educating children in a private household paying attention to their social development (as well as tutoring English ond other subjects)
  • Governess will be employed to work 5 or 6 days per week and may work alongside a nanny or mothers’ help. She will normally care for school aged children between the ages of 3 to 16 years.
  • A Bilingual Governess is often asked to teach children a second language (French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Geman etc).
  • A Governess may also teach a musical instrument.



  • Salaries depend on experience and can be anywhere from £800 - £1500 net per week.

WORKING HOURS: British Governesses work on average 10 hours a day, with 2 days off. Those hours can be negotiated and even stretched if agreed between the family and their private tutor / governess.
