    Description

    My name's Katia and I have a son, Luca Leone, who's 6 years old. We live in a very nice area in Italy in a recently refurbished house. We have a guest room with an ensuite bathroom. My partner runs a catering business and I'm a teacher. I like speaking in English to my son, I'm looking for someone who speaks English fluently and can help me and my son improve our English. We are not vegetarian but we don't mind that and we're fond of organic food and nature in general. We have got a small garden but we haven't got any pets. We like travelling, reading and enjoying our free time with friends and relatives.
    I love baking cakes and I’m trying to bake bread, too. I like preparing homade jams and preserves.
    Sometimes in the summer we spend some time up in the mountains where my partner works, we sleep at 1200 mt and you can get there in an hour on foot only, along a path.
    When I don’t help my partner, my son and I spend our days at the beach, I take him to swimming lessons, to the playground, we tour by bike and often have “aperitivo al fresco”, best part of the day!
    We would also be happy to show you around, take you to Firenze, Pisa, Lucca and go to museums together and have stone baked pizza for dinner ! (Second best part of the day).
    What I need is help with my son and teaching us some English, but other things I’m working on and I’d like to achieve are growing vegetables in my garden, use rainy water to water the plants, reduce rubbish towards zero waste. And regarding the house I need some help repainting some windows, doors and railings and tidying up, a lot of tidying up... these are all things you could help us accomplish.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The place where we live is full of art, culture, splendid mountains and beaches. We live near the centre of a small village, full of shops. You can learn about Italian life and culture.
    We can teach you a little bit of Italian, introduce you to the fabulous Italian food and wine, take you to pristine natural places or ancient towns and much more.

    I'm looking for someone who can speak English fluently and is happy to play with my son and who is easy going, positive and willing to make new friends. I’m looking for someone lively and smiling, someone who is curious and interested in learning something new and happy to share their experiences.
