    We are searching for a sincere friend who knows English excellent because we need a friend to teach our son English. So we are looking for a friend who has to be patient, has to love kids, has to love playing with kids and has to feel self confidence on teaching English to a 6,5 years old boy. This is not an babysitting demande, this is exactly teacherly charge.
    Our son Barış is very easy to go together, he loves so much playing, and just you need to be patient, and play lover.
    We will be also so so happy if you know plus French , German or Spanish (l can speak French) and if you have capacity to play about maths and to make science experiments (off course 6years old basis :) )

    Bye the way, we have small easy works for around the home , you will be supposed to share responsabilities as well, like helping Noyan for easy worm farming works, sometimes planting and digging the vegetables, going shopping wit us to local food bazaar, you have to wash your clothes and clean your room, sometimes you can help cooking but you have to help after meals (don't worry we have washing machines and dish washer :) )

    MOST IMPORTANT issue is trustworthiness as a human! you are supposed to carry ethical behaviours because you will carry the responsability protecting the family and KID . This responsability is natural coming from being a family.
    for all other issues that l don't rememnber know, kindly note that we can always find a way to go easy because we are so open so positive and modest..
