  • Description


    Hello! Bonjour! Nice to hear from you :)

    We are a Chinese family (3 kids: 11, 6 and 3) living near Paris where the common transport takes you less than 15 minutes to go to the center of Paris.

    We are looking for one native English speaker full of energy who can help us +/-3 hours per day.
    The help consists of picking up one kid (6) after school, doing English exercises with two kids (11, 6) respectively, eventually some other small work.

    For example, during school days,
    On Monday, Tuesday, Thursday: pick up our boy after school at 16:30 pm (5 minutes by walk), do some English exercises with him from 17 pm to 18 pm, and do another 1 hour English with our daughter before or after dinner.
    Saturday and Sunday: do a total 3 of hours of English with two kids respectively.
    Wednesday and Friday: Day Off

    During school holidays,
    From Monday to Friday: staying a total of 3 hours with the kids in the morning.

    The above schedule is indicated and flexible, but it can give you a general idea of our family's daily organization.

    For exchange, we can provide you a bed in our apartment. We can also share our Chinese/French culture/language: reading, writing... Though we do speak mainly Chinese at home (so the kids will not forget the Chinese...), we will be more than happy to help if you have any questions about french language and french culture.

    The diner can be provided if you want to eat with us. Breakfast and lunch are not served, but you have access to the kitchen.

    For information, for the people sensible to "noise", we need to tell that our boy plays piano, My daughter plays cello. And we have difficulties to deal with disorder, we like to put the things back after use and keep our apartment clean.

    Otherwise, we accept the house exchange during the school holidays.

    Do not hesitate to write to us :)
