    Description

    We live in Torbalı İzmir Turkey. just 200mt to the stop undergroud “İZBAN” Metro line, and near the train station "AYDIN, DENİZLİ" and just 500mt to the bus station "İZMİR" and taxi rank, so very well connected. In our area there is everything, shops, cinema, parks... on the other hand we have a house in our village. it is 18 km in our home.

    we have one kids. his name is Çınar and 2.5 years old. Çınar wakes up at 9:00/9:30 am. He has a dinner at 7:00/7:30 pm. He goes to bed at 10:00 pm. He loves to build Lego and others things, play with PlayDoh, to play hide and seek and run in park... he's very playful and creative.

    My name is Nursev I am a math teacher and work weekdays. 8:30 and 17:30 in Bayındır. My husband ( Hüseyin ) is a journalist but he dont do his own work. He keen on a agriculture and olive. He works in our olive garden and pomace oil factory.

    If you stay with us you will have a private bedroom. You will have Wi-Fi.. We usually cook fresh traditional foods at home, you can be with us at all meals and also you can cook :)

    The weather is usually sunny. Urla/Seferihisar are 75 minutes or çeşme/Alaçatı is 1 hour or Kuşadası 30 minutes far to us. Also Efes and Şirince is so close to Torbalı. If you like history and villiages I guess you will have fun. You can go Bodrum easly for weekends. if you want to go to Kios (a nice Greek Island) from Çeşme it takes 15 minutes by ship.(and it is also cheap). If you want to go Samos (Anoyher Greek İsland) you can get a feryy. (It is also cheap) One weekend you can go to Pamukkale, Kapadokya or İstanbul. We can help you about bookings.

    I speak basic english (but we want to speak just in english ), Hüseyin speaks good english, Çınar cant speaks in English :)

    We would like a volunteer to IMPROVE our child’s English whilst widening his perspective on the world. We would like a workawayer who loves to play with children and who comes here to know Çınar.

    We want a workawayer who is Honest, Patient with kids, and who knows time management.

    So READ for Çınar, love to play with him and teach new play. When you are working with Çınar YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO OTHER ACTIVITIES. We don't ask you not so much to be with the child, but to ACTIVELY INTERACT WITH HIM.

    you are free in saturday and sunday. maybe we do some activities together. or you can go anywhere for weekends.

    An example of your tasks :
    Morning:
    - Making breakfast
    - play with him
    - play new game with him
    In the afternoon you have to:
    - to play with him and to read for him
    - dinnertime around 7.30pm (no make dinner, just help him)
    - brushing teeth/pajamas/story time (no bath time)
    Babysitting includes:
    - just making sure he goes to bed at a proper time (10.00 pm)
    - making sure that the kitchen and play-areas are tidy (when he sleeps).
