    Hello, I’m Matteo Guenna, 49 years old, I have a 13 years’ old girl, I live in Camogli, a touristic and very nice little town of Liguria near Genoa (Italy), with the beach and a few kilometers from Portofino, San Fruttuoso and Cinque Terre. Search on Internet the picture of these beautiful places.

    Now my daughter has grown up, she is very independent and I didn't longer need a babysitter.
    She really likes cooking but especially prepare sweets and desserts, so I thought I can find someone who could help her in grow in this her hobby that could become a job.
    So I am looking for, by the end of may 2019, a young voluntary (a cooking student is well accepted, too) who has the hobby of the kitchen.
    Find a chef or a pastry chef would be the best.

    I cannot quantify the required hours, because it depends on what you decide to prepare, but I think the hours of commitment would be very few and flexible depending on our  and your needs. Obviously no more than 25 hours/week

    I'm very flexible, if you need free-days and I need your flexibility.
    During the free days, you can do whatever you want, stay at home, get out and go to the beach, travelling and visiting cities in Italy. You will find a tourist guide to travel for about 10 free days in proximity. Normally, free weekend, but if you want to stay with us, like my daughter's bigger sister, you're welcome and we will be very happy.

    In the summer 2017 I hosted three workawayer: one from US, one from Ukraine and one from Hungary.
    For the american and hungarian girls, I wrote and receive the very good feedbacks, for the ucranian I can't because her prifile is no more active: excellent experience
    In the summer 2018, I already hosted the ucranian girl.


    I will be available to host during all the year. Now I'm looking for a French girl (February 2019)

    My goal is find a bigger sister for my daughter, who spend time with her, play with her, help her with homework.
    She already understand well English better than me.
    Now I'm looking for someone, who can help her with FRENCH.
    Also a couple of hours one or two days/week to helping me in the houseworks are requested and well accepted.
    I live alone because I’m separate since September 2014. I need your help to manage my daughter:

    *️️️️️️ During the school period (Septeber, the 15th - June, the 10th excluding Christmas holiday) I need your help for:
    _ about 3 hours for 2 weekdays (tuesday and thursday). Maybe some weekends.
    _ If my daughter sleep at my house during the week, i need your help also in the morning to wake up her, prepare breakfast and wait the schoolbus (about 30 minutes)
    _ I need you help my daughter about homeworks, too
    _ I ask also a couple of hours in a week helping me in houseworks.

    If you are looking for other periods:
    *️️️️️️ During Christmas school holiday I need your help some days (all day), when her mother and I will work, both.
    I ask also a couple of hours in a week helping me in houseworks.
