GENEVA, Switzerland, Nov. 8 (UPI) -- An Arab businessman in Switzerland placed an ad offering annual pay of $200,000 for a private tutor to train him in disciplines including piano and English.

The anonymous businessman took out the ad in the Times of London Education Supplement that says he comes from an Arabic background, is in his 30s and wants a full-time tutor who can help him prepare for his goal of attending Oxford University in England, Britain's Daily Telegraph reported Friday.

The ad asks for applicants who can teach the businessman to speak English "without any geographical specificity," play jazz piano and appreciate art forms, including opera and the plays of William Shakespeare.

The job "would suit a retired former head teacher of a renowned British private school or someone with comparable experience who is seeking early retirement," the ad says.

The tutor would have to be available from 8 a.m. until 11 p.m. each day, but would not be required to teach non-stop during those hours.

"The tutor should constantly be 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 -- any place or activity that the tutor thinks will be an essential part of this 'life-curriculum' in its most encompassing sense," the ad reads.
