    Description

    I am here on workaway because I want to learn about Online Marketing, SEO, and SMM, and I feel like someone who knows more and has more experience could really help me commit to learning and keep me on track!

    Two rooms available Starting May 23rd, 2020, for a minimum of 3 months, preferring candidates who can stay up to 5 months. The other room is available starting during the first week of July 2020. Prefer someone who will not be looking for part-time work, nor a study program that is more than 15 hours per week.

    The home can host up to 2 workaway guests at once.

    I am looking for those that can achieve the perfect balance of friendship, work (in the form of teaching me things), healthy boundaries, and balancing the needs for socializing with the needs for alone time. Because I will wear several hats with you: friend, host, and roommate. So someone with above average emotional intelligence is welcome!

    In terms of concrete cultural exchange value I can offer: 
    - professional French lessons help. with me. I have lots of experience teaching French to professional and executives. Teaching used to be my job.
    - a cat roommate: it's good for relaxation
    - learn Indian cuisine: along with me, you have 2 roommates who are students and come from India: they love to share their culture.
    - I practice Somatics and can also show you some about this, if you are interested.
    - conversation about awareness, and acceptance, meditation, psycho-emotional concepts....
