  • Description


    I am a single mum who homeschools my two boys aged 11 and 14. I also run a small business from home part time. My boys both have Autism and Anxiety and Mr 14 also has ADHD and Dyslexia. Life is never dull!

    We live in a large house in a quiet suburb with a large yard, nestled between the Adelaide Hills and beaches.

    We love animals and have two dogs, two cats, four ducks, two chickens and one turtle.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I was an exchange student in 1993 and absolutely adore everything about cultural exchange programs. Living and working with me will allow you to learn more about Australia, home education, Autism and to practise your English. You’ll have the opportunity to explore Adelaide city, the Adelaide Hills, our beautiful beaches, the Fleurieu Peninsula, Kangaroo Island, and both McClaren Vale and Barossa wine regions. Further afield Adelaide makes a great launching point to head to the Australian Outback.

  • Help


    I’d really love to find people who are able to help with gardening, from simple weeding right up to landscaping. I also have a list of handy person jobs to be done around the house, from very simple right up to trade qualifications needed. There is always cleaning, cooking and shopping to be done, and I would love to have some help with everything!

    We’d also love to learn about life in your home country and learn some key language phrases.

  • Accommodation


    I have a spare room that includes two single beds and a private bathroom.

    We generally eat meals together as a family and we are vegetarian. I’m very happy for you to eat meat if you’d like to, but meat will be at your own cost and cooking.
