  • Description


    Hello dear Workawayers!

    *️Female & English speaker*️

    We are a turkish family of 3 living in beautiful Istanbul.

    We are looking for someone who's enthusiastic, relaxed, trustworthy, active, patience, fun and playful to help with our son after school, a BIG SISTER.

    We have one young kid:
    My son who is 9 likes dancing and his favorite food is doner. He loves Fortnite and speaking english. Moreover, listening to music is his passion- specially Imagine Dragons- and he knows how to play the drums. He was born an actor; maybe we could say a comedian! He helps with the housework and he likes to cook.

    I am a highschool math teacher. Working morning hours means that I have evenings free, free to spend time with my son, cook and read books!

    My husband is a business man. This means he doesn’t have a stable work schedule. He is very busy and he works hard but loves his job and he tries to make as much as possible time to spend with our son.

    You could learn real local life, by being part of our family. We can tell you a lot of things about Turkish families/culture/ education&health system/history/social life..etc. All of us are talkative so you can easily learn Turkish from us. Because of we love eat; you can learn a lot of new Turkish food recipes. Summer times we go to our vacation house in Datça, spending our days swimming, relaxing and playing! You sre more than welcome to join us.

  • Help


    Our main focus is for our son to learn English, by doing his regular routine. We are looking for a loving person that likes and enjoys being with kids, that SINGS, TALKS to them, makes them laugh and PLAYS with them trying to ENGAGE them asking to join on their game and keeping them entertained.
    Someone who knows how to be silly and goofy at the right time, but serious and firm when needed.
    We would love someone with a "teaching spirit" that is eager to correct their English (EACH time!) and help them REPHRASE.
    We don't need someone to help us with the house.
