    Hello everybody!

    We are happy young Russian family with 4 children. Maxim (40), Anastasia (36), Miya (13), Fyodor (11) , Praskovya (6) and Georgy (3). We live in St.Petersburg - one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

    We live in the countryside, where we build nice big house for us and our friends. That's wonderful place! Real Russian village! Nice stable is not far from our house! Fresh organic food! And all these 1. 5 hour way from St. Petersburg with it's great tourist live!

    As we just start homeschooling, we need teachers in any field. Cool teachers wanted! )))

    Our village is small and there is nothing here except of little shop. We have a big house. We are now finishing to build it, but we already have free bedrooms for you to stay. ))) So, we could accommodate more than just one volunteer - it would be more fun with more people! )
    You can come alone, or with friend. We don't mind!
    We have nice kitchen downstairs, shower, cold/hot water, TV, Internet and big garden.

    The house is in the village, 70 km away from the St.Petersburg. But you can use train (1h15min) to go to the city. Train station is 5 km away from the house.
