  • Description


    We are a very active and lively family with two children. Our son is 14 years old and is becoming a real teenager and our daughter is 11 years old. Both are going to school. We moved in June 2016 from New Zealand to Germany, so our children are raised bilingual. We are looking for a native English speaker if possible. We need help to tutor our children in English, to do household work and gardening. I like it really clean and tidy in the house.

    What we will offer to our guests:

    - your own clean and tidy flat (attached granny flat to the house) with garden view and separate entrance
    - own toilet and bathroom
    - underfloor heating

    - single bed and most of the time WIFI
    - friendly, caring and welcoming family
    - unlimited Internet access
    - everyday laundry
    - daily professional made and unlimited fresh coffee :-)
    - we can be flexible in working hours to explore the fantastic City of Frankfurt
    - four days of working days for about 5 hours
    - three days off per week

    In the first week you would get to know our children and their daily life and we would introduce you to the different tasks in the household.

    The different tasks include the following:

    - Sometimes picking up children from School, days needs to be arranged
    - Daily household tasks: folding washing, laundry, putting washing away, vacuuming, empty dishwasher, loading dishwasher, wiping all surfaces in the dining room and kitchen, making beds, tidying kitchen, dining room, living room and all bedrooms
