  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of three - two kids 14, 11 and myself.
    We needs some help for approximately 4 hours a day. (Not an AuPair kind of position).
    Being originally from Germany, speaking German is important so you can help with German language practice and homework assistance.
    We normally have all breakfast together and after the kids leave for school, you have off until 3 PM when school is over. Ideal for 3 to 6 Month or even longer if interested!
    .........................................................................................................................................................................................................
    Great for a German student who studies English and has to spent one semester in an English speaking Country
    or for a German Exchange student who want to go in NJ to college!!!
    .........................................................................................................................................................................................................

    Board and lodging shall be provided with Internet access. TV, Netflix, AC. (Nice guest room with separate half bathroom)

    Since the Pandemic started, we always ensured to do everything possible to have a Covid free household. We followed all the requested and we exceeded the required safety guidelines in many ways. We already had masks when they still said they are not needed. Due to my professional background, I took right from the beginning higher safety & security measures. And our small town offers many possibilities with parks etc. to move around without running into crowded
    areas. It is a family oriented town where most families have children and most people taking this health requirements seriously.
