  • Description


    We are a busy family of 3 living in a small house in a lovely village 15km north of Ulm.

    We are interested in gifted people, who can teach us, especially our son (born 2009), a lot of exciting things.
    for example: languages, star watching, basic Computer stuff, programming, gardening, bird watching , cooking, baking, ...

    He loves gaming and anything related to computers, so PC knowledge or programming would be great.

    Right know he started to learn Corean so anybody able to speak Corean or Japanese is welcome.

    Any cool sports like skateboard, scooter, jugglery, unicycle, driving, acrobatics,....

    Also any crafts like wood work, sewing, calligraphy, construction work, carving, drawing, cartoons,...are welcome,too.

    For obvious reasons it would be great if you can speak some german, since our son only studies English and French since 2 years.

    So if you have any speciall skills and talents let us know! Children and dogs welcome!

    German, english or French speaking people with interesting and exciting skills, who like to teach us and especially our son any kind of skills.

    Most "working" or teaching hours would be on weekends or in the early evening since our son has school activities in the most afternoons. (When not coming during holidays)
    Though keep in mind that a 11year old can not study for hours anyway:)

    We would expect you to contribute to the household as a family member would (cooking, cleaning, gardening, laundry, running some errands, ...)

    Meals are provided, of course, but since we are a busy family always on the way we can not promise great cooking on regular basis... sorry for that! So please don't expect a 3 course meal every day. But always interested in new, healthy recipies!
    Though not vegetarian we don't have meat very often.
    Also we do not consume alcohol, so you won't find any at our place...
    Non-smoking area!

    Valid health insurance for Germany would be necessary!
    Please check if your liability insurance is valid in Germany!
    Also a copy of your passport on arrival!
