    In our family there are four people, my husband Emanuele and I, my name is Cristiana, and we are both 41. We have 2 children, Sofia, she will be 7 next March, and Greta who is 4 and a half years old.
    We live in a town near Rome, Palestrina. You can reach Rome by train and it takes half an hour! We have a new, modern house in the countryside with a big garden!
    I teach English to children from 1 to 11. In the morning I teach at kindergartens and in the afternoon I have a private school with different classes. My husband is at work the whole day, he runs his own family business.

  • Help


    We would like you to takes care of Sofia and Greta, helping them to wash and dress up in the morning after our breakfast together, cleaning up their room and toys (I like that once they are done with one toys or with one activity they are doing, they clean everything up and then take another toys…), teaching them English just by playing together, talking, dancing, organizing some games finalized to exercise the language for example. Your creativity is very much appreciated in this!! I would like you to organize activities for them in order to learn English!

    Both Sofia and Greta are used to English, we have English activities every day: we watch English cartoons, we read English books before going to bed, sometimes we cook pancakes for breakfast and we decide we only speak English for our special American breakfast!! In the last four years we always had an au pair during Summer.
