    I am looking for someone to stay for a few weeks or more and help in my family. I would also appreciate washing dishes after meals or cooking during your stay ....but the first thing is play with my son!
    When working with Filippo don't be distracted by the phone or other activities. We ask you not only to be with the child, but to ACTIVELY INTERACT WITH HIM.
    I don’t need to "just watch" or long periods of silence!
    You are here to help him improve in foreign languages ​​and make him have fun. you need to be able to keep constantly these two goals in mind .

    With Filippo:
    -take him to school and pick him up (only when I can't). School is a one minute walk from home!!
    - 2/3 pages a day of a foreign language grammar book (English- French)
    -correct his language mistakes
    -play and be happy together
    -check his daily cleaning routine: wash hands , to brush teeth thoroughly,
    -Reordering of his games

    At home:
    -washing the dishes after meals
    -sometimes welcome help in cooking
    -keeping your room tidy and clean
