  • Description


    We are a family of five - an Irish man, Scottish lady and three children: a 12 year old, a 8 year old and a 5 year old. We ordinarily live between a small village on a remote tropical island off the coast of Bahia, Brazil and a small village called Capao in the Chapada Diamantina mountains in the interior of Bahia. But due to an unexpected loss in the family we are now based at a family home in Scotland for 6 months.

    We need someone (or a couple) who can teach piano to our eldest son and possibly help with general homeschooling with the other 2. We are in a beautiful castle in Fife across the Tay river from Dundee. Magical gardens and woodlands and lots to explore in the area. We will offer your own very large room and bathroom and lots of delicious local food. You will be part of the family and join us on fun trips. A great way to improve your English/ learn about Scotland and gain experience teaching. We would Portuguese or Spanish speakers who could speak their own language with the kids - but will consider anyone.

    Music/ piano

    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.

    Physical activities

    We have three boys so any physical activities are always needed! Running, football, tennis, yoga, dance, - anything! But if you are a musician who hates movement, we will accept that too!

    Home Schooling

    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.

    General help

    We always love people who can help with tidying up, cooking etc. Not a job, but just to help out when needed!
