  • Description


    I am a single mom trying to manage a household, run a business and work a full time job. I am originally from San Francisco, California, but I have lived in Europe since 1988. I have six children but only two left in the nest. I speak German, French and some Spanish and love meeting new people. I grew up in a commune in Northern California, USA. I have lived in Switzerland, France and England and have worked there as an English teacher.

    I live in Liverpool and work in Manchester and need help getting my sons off to school in the morning as I begin work very early. My sons are ten and thirteen. I also want my sons to improve their French as they speak French but are forgetting it.

    We live close to the city near a bus and train line. Liverpool has its famous football and Beatles' history as well many concerts halls and conference centres and a vibrant city centre. The city boasts a long and rich history from the slave, cotton and sugar trades as well as World War Two bombings.
