LONDON -- Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband, Chris Martin, want a private tutor for their kids -- but only multilingual all-round geniuses need apply, The Sun reported Thursday.
They placed an ad for someone to teach ancient Greek, Latin, French and Spanish to Moses, five, and Apple, seven.
A friend of the showbiz couple said, "They're looking for someone with amazing qualifications -- fluent in languages, able to play two instruments and sporty."
The Coldplay frontman -- who has a top university qualification in Greek and Latin -- and his film star wife are offering a £60,000 ($98,000) salary for two to four hours' work a day at their home in Belsize Park, north London.
Other perks include the all-expense paid, free use of a west London apartment and free travel with the couple and their kids when they fly abroad.
They already interviewed hopefuls after they placed the ad on a website for tutors.
Their friend added, "They want someone to go with them wherever they need them, be that America or anywhere else. But with that kind of deal for teaching two hours a day -- you would, wouldn't you?"
