It’s rumoured that Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are advertising for a top private tutor to give their two children, Apple, 7, and Moses, 5, extra curricular language classes in Japanese, Latin and French.
Actress Gwen and her Coldplay frontman husband are said to be unhappy with the British curriculum and therefore offering someone £62,100 a year to further their children’s learning at the family home in North London.
Other requirements for the role are said to be someone who’s qualified to give the youngsters lessons in sailing and tennis. They also need to have knowledge about philosophy and enjoy painting, art, drama and chess.
“The children respond best to teachers who are understanding and compassionate, who are not strict and uptight, but at the same time able to earn the respect of young people through being fair and straightforward. The ideal candidate will have a sense of humour, enjoy life and all it has to offer, be youthful, sporty and easygoing,” said the job description, posted on Tutors-International.
It’s believed the successful applicant will also receive travel expenses, free use of a West London flat, nine weeks holiday a year, use of a car and free travel with the family when they go abroad.
Apple and Moses will still attend school, unlike Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s brood who enjoy a more bohemian lifestyle.
