If you are native English speaker with expertise in teaching, knowledge of jazz piano, be in good physical shape and preferably female, then you may qualify for a well-paying job as a private tutor of an Arab businessman in Britain.

The man, in his 30s, placed an advert for a full-time tutoring job in the Times Education Supplement, offering a salary of $200,000 (£122,300) a year for someone who can transform him into a man worthy of admission into Oxford University, the Daily Mail reported on Friday.


The successful candidate is expected to help him through his GCSEs and A Levels, teach him English like a native, the jazz piano, appreciate opera and understand the great works of Shakespeare.

The anonymous Arab man’s ultimate goal is to study at Oxford University but said in his advert that he is realistic about his “hugely ambitious” aim and knew a place was not guaranteed, according to the Daily Mail.

The successful candidate must be willing to travel to destinations like the Middle East and Africa and should not worry about logistics as everything will be provided “including apartments, hotels and yachts.”

Although the required sex of the applicant was never mentioned, the ad keeps referring to a candidate as “she.”

The job will require work from 8am to 11pm every day in addition to spending Fridays and Saturdays with the man.

Anyone applying must be “highly intelligent, erudite, well-read, musically accomplished and socially and culturally versatile,” reads the ad. She also must maintain a “healthy lifestyle” and has a “good physical shape.”

She must also be able to turn the client into a man whose “Arabic background is no longer evident.”

In the lengthy advert, the tutor should also be “constantly researching and planning a culturally rich range of musical and dramatic performance, visits to art galleries and museums, restaurants, sites of historical or contemporary interest,” as part of a “life curriculum.”

The Arab business man whose nationality wasn’t disclosed, has left school in his teenage years and went to the business world, where he has been “very successful.”
