  • Description


    We are a typical Italian family : I’m Serena , 43 years old, my husband Carlo ( 43 y.o.) and Alice of 10 y.o. and Lorenzo of 12 years old. I work for PosteItaliane, I’m the director of a little office. I like my work but I prefer spend my time with my family!! My husband has a chemical laboratory ( he analys food, water ...) . He works all day long . I work from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. from Monday to Saturday. During the afternoon I stay at home with my children. All of us love music and my 2 children study piano and cello at the Conservatory of Lucca. In summer we are free from musical appointment so we decided how to spend our time ( going to the beach or in the mountains) .We have a garden and in summer we use to stay for play or to relax. Alice sing in a choir also . In our familiy the music never stop !!! The study English from they were little but I like they speak fluently. We live very close to the old center of Lucca , we can move by bicycle or by walk . Lucca is a small city In Toscany and from here you can visit Florence, Pisa, Siena . We have a black cat called Dasy, but she is very shiny and in summer she lives outside. I like visiting museum , cities and going at every cultural event, so during the afternoon I and my children will be happy to go with you in every place!! I need of someone who speaks in English in the morning with my children. They aren't little so what I need is someone who stay with them speaking English but the don't need to take care.And don’t worry: I won’t ask you to clean up the house 😃 (I have a very good lady that comes one day every week to clean)
