  • Description


    Hi We are a french family of 4 living in the lovely area of Aix En Provence. We have been living abroad for the past 20 years and settled in Aix a year ago. We are seeking for a native english speaker to spend time with our children a 14 years old boy and an 11 years old girl ideally from September until June (to be discussed)
    Kids have been raised abroad and they love to be around international people. They speak FR, UK and IT. We are offering a lovely bedroom (16 m2), with everything you need, shower, toilets, mini kitchen, terracce and garden as well as a parking and an access to the swimming pool. You will have your own access (entrance) to you room. In exchange, we are asking you to speak english, so if you don't speak french, don't worry this is perfect. To bring the kids to the bus stop every morning, the bus is 5 minutes away by feet, wait for them in the evening at the bus stop and spend time with them until 17h30. Help with homeworks if needed. Be with them on wednesdays afternoon and bring them by bus to their activities. During school break, you will have to spend time with the kids from 11am to 5pm. You will have plenty of free time during school year, to attend any classes you are thinking of (at your own expenses), if you like hiking, this is the perfect spot as well.
    During the school year, as you will be working maximum 15 hours a week, you will be responsible for your own meals, but your accomodation will be fully equiped for you to do so. During the school break, as you will be working 24 hours a week, we wil provide you with meals, as you will be requested to "cook" light meals for the kids.

    One more thing, we a have a lovely 4 months old kitten named Oopsie Looking forward to hear from you
