  • Facilitate immersive learning experiences, including project-based activities and potentially real-world business exposure, aligned with family guidance and expectations.
  • Ensure seamless communication with parents to maintain alignment with the family’s educational and ethical values, and to track progress towards developing future business leadership skills.
  • Adapt to the family’s international travel schedule, as needed, providing consistent educational support and leveraging travel experiences as educational opportunities.


  • Proven track record in delivering classical education with an emphasis on leadership and entrepreneurial development.
  • Deep understanding of and ability to integrate values with business ethics and leadership qualities.
  • Exceptional interpersonal and communication skills, with an unwavering commitment to professionalism and discretion.
  • Versatile, with a flexible approach to teaching that accommodates year-round schedules and international travels.

Politeness is highly valued, as it ensures respectful and considerate interactions. Honesty is crucial, as we rely on transparency and trust in our household. We also appreciate a conservative approach, particularly in terms of behavior and decision-making, which aligns with our values and lifestyle. Special instructions would include maintaining a low profile, respecting privacy, and adhering to a structured routine to ensure the smooth running of our daily lives.
