Hello. My name is Deniz,31 years old.My husband's name is Emre,37 years old.We are a young couple with one kid who is looking for a volunteer (female, min.20 and max. 35 years old,talkative, patient with children, nonsmoker). We both are secondary school teachers that mainly work from monday to friday.The main reason why i want to have a workaway experience is to improve my daughter's English. She is over 2 years old.She is not a spoilt child.She likes playing games,singing and dancing. She is very open to learn. Our English level is currently beginner (so i and my daugther's aunt manage our workaway account ). I am looking for a volunteer who can have conservation and play games with my daughter. We can try for one week at first and then if we are both are satisfied , we can go for longer. If you are interested,Please don't hesitate to contact me.
