    We are a small English school and guesthouse near Shinjuku, located in Nakano, Tokyo. Our location and home are excellent, as we are near 4 train stations.

    We are looking for help in setting up the English school.

    We are looking for someone to take care of our children sometimes.
    Also, we would like help teaching the local kids in the neighborhood, and we also need help updating the website.
    We don't charge for this, so we teach kids for free.
    Besides that, there may be some cleaning and cooking to do around the house.
    Sometimes we expect that you will pick our kids up from school.

    Since we are asking you to take care of our children we hope that you are at least over 23 years old.
