  • Description


    We are Grace and Gaby, two 33 years olds, born in the Galapagos. I, Grace , work for the Galapagos National Park and Gaby works as a receptionist in a hostel. I speak intermediate English and Gaby is learning. It would benefit both of us in our jobs if we improved our English, especially Gaby.
    We live on two places, so We share with voolunter my house of Cascajo small villague on the highland of Santa Cruz Island on the way to Garrapaero Beach.
    I am looking for an architect to make plans and designs of a country house, ecological, help in the maintenance of a farm.
    We need some who dont care to work some days alone, because I work 14 days and then I have 7 days off so just at that time we can work toguether.My wife visit the farm some days. We need some one who help me to live on my second house. When we are not at house you must cook by yourself.We need help on my land.

    I am most interested in improving my pronunciation and vocabulary. Gaby is starting out and doing well, but she needs learning support and direction. We want someone who is patient and who has experience in teaching English. We are looking for a native English speaker from Australia, Canada, the US, England or New Zealand. It would be a big plus if you can speak a little Spanish as Gaby will often ask 'How do you say ..... in English' and that is an important part of her learning experience. We provide 2 healthy meals a day for about 4-5 hours teaching as our jobs allow. You will have your own bedroom and bathroom. For dinner we dont cook but you can cook if you want.
    Because we are busy, we would like you to help us with cooking and cleaning the apartment.
    We often cook typical Ecuadorean food, and you will be living like a local.
    It is important that you are willing to work on
    the weekends and evenings as this is the best time for Grace. Your days off during the week are flexible. Sometimes on our free days we can visit local beaches .
    With the Galapagos at your doorstep, your learning opportunities and experiences are limited only by your energy and funds. You will live in one of nature's paradises, and contribute to efforts to protect the environment, the flora and fauna of the Galapagos.
