  • Description


    Hello everyone!
    My name is Julia and my husband's name is Slava and our little son is Max. We live in a flat in Saint-Petersburg not very far from the city centre.
    We need a person(better a girl) to spend 3-4 hours a day with our son while I'm working (from home) or doing household duties.
    It's better if you speak English or French fluently to speak with Max.
    He understands everything you say in English and he can compose simple phrases. And he also can understand pretty good french and it's our great desire to teach him this beautiful language, but my level is only elementary in it now.
    Our city is very beautiful, especially in summer during the period of white nights. You can stay here for a period of 1 to 3 or 4 weeks (more is also possible, but you'll need a business visa to stay in Russia more than 1 month)
    You'll definitely have plenty of time to enjoy the city and the suburbs. We've already had about 10 volunteers by now and they all visited more places in our city than me! :)
    The Finnish gulf beach is 20 minutes walk from our house and there are also a lot of parks near here.
    Please, be aware, that travelling to Russia requires visa and you need some amount of time to do it!
