  • Description

    Description

    Our home is in the city of Toronto in a leafy area and a short walk to the subway. It is my son and I who live in the house plus I enjoy hosting international students and one might be here while you are here. I enjoy conversation at the dinner table. Mom is a recently retired English and Music teacher. My son, Julian is in high school. We have a cat, Cocoa Puff. Our hope is that Workawayers can help with painting jobs, gardening and yard work, or speak with me in Spanish. Sometimes I need help cleaning and gardening at my duplex. If I am out for the evening, I would ask you for prepare dinner for yourself and the students, although this would not happen often. In the winter, I require help to shovel the snow as I am not able to do it. You will work 5 hours a day for 5 days and have two days off. I provide very comfortable accommodations and healthy meals. We have a room with a double bed available, so we can accommodate a single person or a couple. No smokers please, as we are non smokers ourselves.
    LOOKING FOR WORKAWAY AGE 20+ FOR APRIL OR MAY REQUIRE WORKAWAYER FOR PAINTING AND YARD WORK.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Improve your English by conversing with us and international students during dinner. You can walk to the subway which will take you downtown to many stores, Eaton Centre, the CN Tower, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Art Gallery, Chinatown, University of Toronto, and can get a bus to Niagara Falls. You can canoe on the Humber River very close to our home.

    Accommodation

    You will have a lovely room on the second floor with a double bed. The washroom is shared with one or two international students. You are provided with three meals a day. Breakfast and lunch you get for yourself from food provided and I cook the dinner for you and the family. There is a washer and dryer for you to use once a week to wash your clothes.

    What else ...

    I love sharing cultures and have friends around the world. There is some flexibility for the timing of the work help that you do during the day, although I prefer the morning and in the afternoon you can explore the city.
