    Description

    We are a busy family of 3 living 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: star watching, basic Computer stuff, gardening, birds watching,...

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

    Also any crafts like wood work, sewing, calligraphy, construction work, carving, drawing, cartoons,... would be great.

    For obvious reasons it would be great if you can speak some german, since our son just started learning english!

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

    German and english 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 afternoon. (When not coming during holdays)
    Though keep in mind that a 7 year 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! 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!
