My name's Elisa, I'm 33 and I work as a teacher in secondary school in Turin. My family home is in Poirino, a village 30 mins by bus from Turin. I need a helping hand to refresh the house, mainly cleaning the attic and the garage that have become quite packed over the years. Also, the garden might need some work to look nicer.
Help around the house
You can visit Turin, the bus stop is less than 5 minutes' walk and you can reach the city centre in 30 minutes. Turin is a nice, elegant city with many museums and attractions. I am a teacher of English, so communication shouldn't be a problem if you don't speak Italian. I am willing to show you around the city if you wish. I worked in the past as an au pair and I've spent time abroad in host families, so I hope I'll be a good host myself and make you feel comfortable with us.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Mainly to help my father and myself tidy up and clean the attic and garage, we have many books and stuff that need to be sorted. It's not heavy housework but it's something I cannot do all on my own in a short time, that's why I'm looking for some help. If you can also do bit of gardening that would be greatly appreciated, but it's not strictly necessary.
