  • Description


    we are Daniela and Giuseppe, 43 and 45 years-old, and we have two little girl, Bianca and Stella (6 and 9 y-o).
    This is our 10th time with w.a and we are really excited to get again into this new experience. So our guest will be very welcome as family member.

    Since we are both doctors, working in Hospital, we are quite busy; we already have a babysitter and a part-time maid.
    The girls attend an International School where they study an IB program and stay at school from morning till 4 pm.

    We're looking for someone who can help our daughters doing homeworks, improving their conversation skill. Hardly we need babysitting but can happen from time to time. My husband and I would like also to improve our English with some grammar lessons.
    We can be very flexible with times and arrangements.
    Daniela is pescatarian near vegetarian...
    Giuseppe and the girls no.

    We would like that our girls continue to speak english language in their free time so our guest 's main responsibility is to take care of and play with our girls, helping them with homeworks and activities; sometime she will be asked to babysit once or twice a week
    In addition we hope you will assist My husband and I to improve our English 🤗🤗🤗and will assist the family with light housework.

    We need about 20/25 working hours/week but we are really easy-going in this regard and expect that our guest will be as well.

    We live in Porticello, a little fishermans' village close to the sea, 10 Km away from Palermo, the capital of Sicily; it's a nice and quite place to live.
    The rail station and all facilities are at 5-10 minutes walk from our house. Moreover Sicily offers a lot of things to see and all the seasons are good for visiting the Island because the weather is good every time...
