We are a family of five - an Irish chap, Scottish gal and three children: a 15 year old, an 11 year old and a 7 year old. We live in a small village called Capao in the Chapada Diamantina mountains in the interior of Bahia. But also have a home on the island of Boipeba which we visit regulalrly.
We need someone (or a couple) who can be a general homeschooling teacher with the boys. Mainly focusing on reading, wiring and maths with the two younger ones and then doing lots of creative projects with them. And supporting the 15 year old with his work - he does lots of one to one classes out of home. We have a school room with piano, other instruments, kitchen, bathroom, art room with masses of materials, computer and more. We have an organic garden designed on an agroforestry system, a volleyball court, 200 metres of river front with a standup board - so lots to do!
We will organise accommodation for you and can pay a salary. We need someone who can ideally commit to 6 or 7 months, but might consider 4 months. So this could be a great opportunity to both get to know Bahia/ Brazil more deeply and even save a little for travelling later.
Just get in touch !
You will get to know Bahia and its culture - there are lots of local festivals and you will get the chance to leanr Portuguese and makes friends. Capao is also a hub for the alternative movement in Brazil so there are masses of musicians, artists, circus performers etc. There are classes in all of this plus dance, rituals and a million other things. The trekking is world class and you can walk in to a vast remote national park from our doorstep!
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Our eldest son loves music. Mainly piano but also ukele, guitar and singing. We would love someone to help him with piano - sight reading, technique, repertoire etc. And do fun musical projects with him. Also with the other two.
We have three boys so any physical activities are always needed! Running, football, volleyball tennis, yoga, dance, - anything!
Helping the kids with their reading, writing, maths - and generally doing fun learning projects with them. In fact projects trump boring workbooks so the more creative and engaging the better.
We will find a comfortable place to put you up, within walking distance. we don't have in-house accommodation right now
