  • Description


    We are a family of 4 living in a house in a calm residential neighbourhood 45 minutes by public transit from downtown Toronto. I'm a high school teacher from Toronto and my husband is an electrician from Brazil. Our girls are age 10 and 5 and the older one has been in a french immersion school for the past few years.
    We would like someone to have a cultural exchange with and to help with daily household tasks and routines such as washing the dishes. We are looking for a female French speaker who doesn't smoke to be a role model for our girls. We are only interested in someone who speaks French fluently and has significant experience and joy in working with kids.
    We believe in honesty, character, kindness and we love nature. We have a trampoline and hammocks and we go to outdoor places with our dog a lot.
    Please only contact us if you genuinely feel you are the type of person we are seeking.

  • Help


    Washing dishes, daily living routines with the children, speaking and homework help with the older one in French. We mostly just need help from 7:30-9am and from 4-8pm on weekdays. On weekends we usually go out to parks or events in the city or nearby. You'll be welcome to join or not as we both wish wish.
