A governess was a female teacher or caregiver employed by a family to educate a child at home.

Anya served as Salia's governess for sixteen years, while Salia, the future Daled IV head of state, grew up on Klavdia III. (TNG: "The Dauphin")

Mrs. Davenport was the governess for Beatrice Burleigh and Henry Burleigh. Once Templeton threatened her, saying she could see to it that they employed another governess within a week. (VOY: "Cathexis", "Learning Curve")

The term governess sometimes refers to a "female governor", however, that definition does not describe the usage of the term in these instances.
