We are a family of three. I'm American and my husband is Korean. We are both teachers and have a 6 year old son. Our hobbies include ice skating, traveling, and cooking. My husband is a technological nerd. If you like computers and gadgets and Guinness you'll get along fine. I like sci-fi, hunting for sea glass, and wine. We aren't against new experiences so we are willing to get outside of our normal lives from time to time.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
Being teachers we are happy to help English language learners or fellow teachers. However, anyone is welcome regardless of profession. It would be great if you have experience in Early Childhood Education or TESL.
For the most part volunteers would be expected to help with housekeeping, baby sitting for short periods, and helping my son with his homework if needed. He's currently learning to play the piano. You may be sent on short errands, asked to help with cooking, or pick my son up from the bus and supervise him on the playground. We have two noisy guinea pigs that require care each day. Feeding, watering, and cleaning the cage take about 10-15 minutes each day and a weekly change of everything in their cage. You will have a list of daily tasks to complete. We do insist on our guests to keep a curfew as well. At this time we will only accept people who can stay for a month or more. You will have free access to the health club. There is also a big park across the street.
Workawayers are most needed March 1-June 20 and September 1-December 20. It's preferred you could stay the entire time but we can consider shorter stays.
We do ask that you have an appropriate work or student visa for Korea. At this time we will not be accepting anyone with only a tourist visa.
