Family is hunting for a tutor who will dress as Obi-Wan Kenobi
If you're wise beyond your years, own a lightsaber, and possess Jedi mind tricks, your dream job might just be less than a galaxy away.
"Star Wars" followers who want to get paid for their passion for all things intergalactic may be able to get the chance if they're also knowledgable English tutors.
A British family is on the hunt for a Star Wars "megafan" to help teach their dyslexic son get through his fifth grade English.
The parents say their ideal candidate must dress up as their son's favorite character Obi-Wan Kenobi for the duration of each hourly tutoring session.
This means wearing the iconic character's full robe set with a special request of arriving with a "realistic light saber" — all of which will be fully compensated.
Aside from dressing the part, each lesson must be "Star Wars"-inspired and as interactive as possible.
The ideal candidate is expected to dress and play the part from the moment they arrive.
The parents suggest the tutor refer to their son as "Padawan" and teach nouns, adjectives and sentence structure in terms of the film's objects and scenes.
But hopefuls will also be put through a "Star Wars" skills test before being entrusted with the role.
The parents say in order to choose the right candidate, each one will go through a trial session to "see how well they can recreate Obi Wan's character."
Not only will the successful candidate enjoy the perks of a free new costume, but will also be paid handsomely at £60 ($79) an hour.
Jedi Masters are encouraged to apply on online tutoring agency website Tutor House if they wish to mentor the next generation.
Insider was unable to speak to the family to verify the request, but, if legitimate, it's the dream job for wannabe Jedi masters.
