  • Description


    We are happy to invite people who actually know how to teach children and deal with them. Teaching children during every day situations, talking to them throughout the day and actively encouraging them to learn and speak will be very much appreciated.


    We are a family of 5 (children aged 5, 7 and 10) living very close to Szczecin (only 8 km to the city centre). We are looking for an English, German, Spanish, Italian or Mandarine native speaker willing to help us with teaching our children English, German, Spanish or Mandarin and maintaining the house and our tiny vegetable garden. Keeping an eye occasionally on our chickens and rabbits would be nice.
    We try to eat mostly healthy home-made food, home-baked bread whenever it's possible from organic products and our own vegetables.

    Szczecin is a lovely city offering many interesting places to see and visit. If you are a music addict then the new Szczecin Philharmonic is a must! It is also possible to make a trip to the seaside (100 km) or simply to go to Berlin (150 km), the capital of Germany e.g. for a weekend.

    A non-smoking and tidy person please...

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We like meeting people from other countries. Together with my husband we used to travel a little and the best thing out of all that visiting new places was meeting people and learning their way of life. We would like to deliver the same experience to other people as well as to our children.
    We try to lead a healthy lifestyle, grow our own vegetables (as much as it is possible in our small garden) and try to eat healthy.
