Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband Chris Martin are advertising for a private tutor to teach their children ancient Greek, Latin, French and Spanish.
The American actress and the Coldplay singer, who live in London, also want the teacher to be able to sail and play tennis, as well as be Grade 8 qualified in two musical instruments.
The reward for teaching daughter Apple, seven, and Moses, five, for two to four hours a day will be £60,000 a year, free use of a west London flat and global travel with the family, all expenses paid.
Martin, 34, who has a first-class degree in Greek and Latin, and Paltrow, 38, have placed an advert on the Tutors-International.com website and have already interviewed hopefuls.
A friend of the couple said: "They're looking for someone with amazing qualifications - fluent in languages, able to play two instruments and sporty.
"It's likely the tutor will be Oxbridge educated."
