Looking to make a bit of extra money? Like dressing up as Professor Snape in your spare time? Boy have we got the job for you.
Parents Kate and John are looking for a new tutor for their 11-year-old son who is struggling with science topics.
Here’s where it gets interesting though.
The parents don’t want just any old tutor, no instead they want someone who loves Harry Potter just as much as their son.
Kate and John are looking for someone to bring props to lessons and dress up as Snape to inspire while teaching – and they’re paying a more-than-impressive £75 an hour for the right person.
The advert is currently live on online tutoring agency, Tutor House.
“Me and my husband are looking for a science tutor for our 11 year old boy [sic], with quite an unusual twist,” Katie and John wrote in an email to the agency.
“He is struggling with his science lessons and we are looking for someone to help him outside of school, but we want to make it as fun and engaging as possible for him.
“Toby is a massive Harry Potter fan, so we are looking for someone to create Harry Potter themed lessons for him. We want someone who can teach him for an hour a week (preferably Tuesday or Thursday evenings), who will put 100% efforts into the lessons, basically transforming our kitchen into Hogwarts!
“We’d also like the tutor to dress as a Harry Potter professor while teaching the lessons, for example they could dress as Porfession Snape whilst teaching him chemistry in ‘Potions’ themed lessons, Professor Sprout whilst teaching biology through ‘Herbology’ and as Professor Hooch whilst teaching him about physics in ‘Flying lessons’.
“This is obviously something that would take a lot of time and effort, so we are willing to pay the right candidate £75 an hour for their work. We would want the tutor to bring a series of props for the lessons including wands, quilts and other wizarding student accessories for our son to use, so the lessons are as HP themed as possible.
“We will pay for all added extras the tutor might need on top of their hourly pay. A tutor with at least four years’ experience is ideal, and they must have strong knowledge of the whole Harry Potter series.”
