  • Description

    Description

    A family of three (single mom with two boys - 8 and 10 years-old). We live in a house which is located in South Stuttgart with easy access to the train and near everything worthwhile in the city. My sons attend a local German school and we need help with their studies.

    We love the outdoors, music, languages, and travel. I've traveled all over the world and enjoy exploring other countries and cultures. I love hosting and sharing so I hope you have a great time with us.

    You must be at least 25 years old to be our Workaway. I have a very busy life that requires you to make decisions, take initiative and have some autonomy. I can only accept responsible, worry-free Workaways. This is not couch surfing; you will work 20-25 hours a week and you must be mature and outgoing to communicate with us.

    If you are interested and you understand what I'm saying please tell me the following info so I can understand what you need:
    Title: Your First Name - Your Dates; Example: "Marcie - 15 Jun 2018 - 30 Sep 2018" or "Marcie - 6 weeks in Sept-Nov"
    Try to answer these questions in your message: Are your dates flexible or fixed? Do you have purchased tickets? Are you waiting to purchase tickets after hearing from a host? Is this urgent? If so, please explain.

    Please briefly describe you and your skills, talents, interests. Also, what are your goals for Workaway while with us? (explore Europe in free time, learn English, cultural exchange with us, learn or improve a skill, find a local job, etc.) But please be brief and honest!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My guests and previous Workaways say that my English is really easy to understand. I think this is because I've worked as a journalist and have good grammar and pronunciation. I don't mind correcting people when they speak and am happy to give more examples of word usage.

    You must be at least 25 years old to be our Workaway. The main tasks for volunteers would be helping me with my boys and stuff around our house. You need to have a great amount of responsibility!

    A big part of the volunteering would be helping me with my boys. For example, watching them after school, doing homework, playing in the park, or getting ready for bed. During our school year Sept-June, the WorkAway hours are usually days and times when we have arranged for you to help me with the boys. You can explore the area during the daytime but MUST BE PUNCTUAL to arrive home on the days I've asked you to take care of the kids after school.

    You must really love kids and have patience. My boys are well-behaved but have lots of energy and are extremely smart so they can be intense. They love Workaways that play with them and teach them about their country's language and culture.

    The better experiences for hosting and workaway is when we are like a family. We work together with good communication! If you want to learn English or gain an American family experience (of living with a single mom) then you will be happy here. This is why I prefer Workways who stay longer.

    I love Workaways and will treat you with dignity and respect. You have your own bed and you may or may not share a room, depending on how many other Workaway we are hosting. The internet works great and the location is fantastic.

    This home is extremely close to train station, which takes you north into downtown Stuttgart. Restaurants and shopping are within walking distance.

    There are a lot of things to do around Southern Germany, there are lot of places to see some great art/museums, awesome castles, landscapes, and so on.

This is an example of a room in our home, but I will show you the exact sleeping arrangement available for you during your stay when we have a video chat.
Regi and Alice prepare very delicious vegetarian/vegan meals. Your food choice is personal, however, we and many of our guests do eat meat.
This is the kitchen, you are welcome to prepare your food. Many guests leave food, I provide coffee, spices, oats, rice and pasta. You must buy and fruits, veggies or meat.
Matteo plays basketball with my boys and some neighborhood kids at a nearby park.
Giada spent one month with us before taking her English exam and we had a great time together!
You are invited to come enjoy local places with us on the nights and weekends or during the summer.
The boys really love to be active. Please consider that you must play with them at their level (silly like a child).
One of my favorite Workaway moments with our "family" Liz teaching German and Clarice teaching Italian to our guests and my boys.
We do many small home improvement projects that make a better experience for our guests.
You can enjoy many activities in your spare time, we are a 5 minute walk rom Biscayne Bay.
Our small family: Marcie, Nico and Tony.
