  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of three - two kids 9, 12 and myself.
    We needs some help for approximately 4 hours a day. (Not an AuPair kind of position).
    Being originally from Germany, our help also has to speak fluent GERMAN so you can help with German language practice and homework assistance.
    We normally have all breakfast together and after the kids leave for school, you have off until 3 PM when school is over. Ideal for 3 to 6 Month or longer!
    .........................................................................................................................................................................................................
    Great for a German student who studies English and has to spent one semester in an English speaking Country
    or for a German Exchange student who want to go in NJ to college!!!
    .........................................................................................................................................................................................................

    Board and lodging shall be provided with Internet access. TV, Netflix, AC. (Nice guest room with separate half bathroom)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    OK, here are some options:

    B) Nearby hiking trails in Watchung Reservation, shopping malls, Library,
    C) Our town, Berkeley Heights is named : No. 6 as Best Places to Live - Americas Top 50 Small Towns by CNN/Money.
    D) New York City (Manhattan) less than 35 Miles away, perfect to meet many people for cultural exchange.
    E) Plenty of free time to explore the "Big Apple"
    F) We are in between the Jersey Shore and some Mountain regions.
    G) Your welcome to join us on family activities like - hiking, rock climbing, beach, camping, Indoor go-kart racing,
    H) If you are into Taekwondo, Karate, there is a Dojos nearby. (my son goes there, he is a 2nd Dan Black Belt)

    Many of our Workawayer's joint some cultural exchange groups in New York City.

    J) We are a German/English bilingual household. This is a great place for cultural exchange and to improve your English skills. Especially when you study English in Germany and need a to stay for 3 month in a foreign country.

    Help

    It's important that someone is in the house in the afternoon. Any general household help shall be appreciated but not essential, especially if you are a student needing time to study.

    If the person applying has cooking skills you are welcome to feel free to use the kitchen as you would in your own home.

    The family grocery shopping list can include items of your choice as well, provided it leans towards healthy eating.

    Accommodation

    We live in a one family house in a nice suburban neighborhood in New Jersey, 35 Miles west of New York City. You shall have a nice private room with internet access; exclusive use of a half guest bathroom.
    You will also have access to the Living/Dining room and the family room thereby, enough privacy for everyone in the house to spread out.
    Needless to say, we hope to develop a mutual exchange of usual courtesies and respect.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Closest Airport is NEWARK Airport (EWR) not JFK.
    Our local train station is less than 1 Mile away. We are in commuting distance to Manhattan.
    We have nice areas near by in case you like long bike rides.
    There are hiking trails within 10 miles.
    We are approximately one hour away from the beach and also approximately one hour from the Poconos Mountains in Pennsylvania in case you like hiking or skiing.
    Great Amusement and Water parks etc. in driving distance. (e.g. Six Flaggs, Dorny Park, Wild Water Kingdom)

    Und falls Sie in den USA fahren möchten geht das auch dem deutschen Fuehrerschein. Sicherheitshalber aber einen internationalen Fuehrerschein dabeihaben.
