We are a family of four; Cecilia, pianist and chamber music teacher at the Venice Conservatory of music, Andrea (Andrew), physicist teaches maths and sciences at the middle school, Gioia, 10 years, lovely girl and Gabriele, 6 years, funny boy.
We like very much to travel and to know new people, because we think it's the best way to open our minds and to enrich ourselves. Therefore to be able to speak different languages is very important for us. We are looking for an English mother tongue or a very good speaker to teach English to our sons. We both (parents) speak English and we would really like that our kids could improve it as well. Since 2008 we are very active in hosting people with different experiences as au-pair girls, helpexchange, couchsurfing and we love it!!
We live in a very beautiful area in Italy, called colli Euganei (vulcanic hills) very famous for the spa (thermal water); it's a touristic area, with lots of rich hotels and plenty of tourists and things (happenings) to do. On the other side you can also have peace and relax going walking or riding (bike, horses) on the hills or taking a bath on the thermal water swimming pool. We live very closed to the train station and to go to Padova or Venice it takes really little time.
We need about 25 hours pro week, we would like most that you teach English to our 2 sons and you speak in English with us. You will have your free time to study or to travel or have fun. We appreciate very much love for arts and crafts and for outdoors, because we are a "creative" family, who enjoy to have fun with easy things....
