    Description

    Hello, we are Maca and Julio, Lola's parents, we live just 10 km from Seville (Spain) and although we no longer live together as a couple, our houses are close to each other. Our daughter's name is Lola, and that is why we decided to work with WorkAway. Lola is fourteen years old, she likes to sing, dance, draw, etc. She is always surrounded by friends. We are looking for a person who can help Lola improve upon her English (grammar, reading and speaking). At the same time, it would be necessary to take care of Lola from 5 pm to 10 pm (Monday through Friday). You will have mornings and weekends free to take classes or do what you would like. We ask that you live with us for a minimum of three months to make it a friendlier relationship for everyone and avoid changing volunteers constantly.

    Lola's parents work in the mornings and some afternoons. Her mother is a nutritionist and her father is an entrepreneur. We all enjoy spending time with family and friends, going to the movies, the park, and we love the beach and sports. If you decide to stay with us, you will be welcome on our dates and parties, where you will have the opportunity to join in on Spanish culture. One of our hobbies is cooking, because a healthy diet is the pillar of our lives.

    We live in two houses, where you will have your own room on the first floor. They are well connected with Seville capital. Lola spends a week with each of the parents and you must be with her in each house.

    Lola is very self sufficient and speaks English with fluidity. She studies English in school and is accustomed to practicing the language with former au pairs we have had. At this point, she just needs help expanding her vocabulary and keeping the language fresh in her mind. You will be responsible for creating exercises for her to do based on what you feel she needs to work on.

    We live in Seville, a city known worldwide for its climate, cuisine, monuments, etc. Our house is 10 km from the city center. We live near a bus stop, very well connected to the subway (located near our house).
    Seville is known as one of the most important Spanish cities. Here, you can experience the April Fair, the famous Holy Week and, in general, flamenco as a way of life. Seville is in Andalusia, where we have around 300 sunny days during the year.
