We are a family of four seeking someone interested in teaching our two children, 8 years old and ten years old, for 3 months. We own a coffee roasting business on St. Thomas for the last 10 years and spend some time traveling as well. Our children have been homeschool since 2020 and Montessori educated prior. They have lived on St. Thomas most of their lives and also traveled both in the US and internationally. We love the outdoors and creating both personally and professionally. We want our children to be open minded, think critically and independently learn.
Creating/ Cooking family meals
We live on St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands which is an island community with rich history from the first explorers of the new world. You can walk downtown and explore 300 year old buildings, take a ferry to another island and hike national forests or just take a stroll to any beach on ST. Thomas ranked in the top 10 in the world.
We have two children 10 and 8 years old who are homeschool. We are looking for someone who is motivated to teach and empower creativity and independence. We have a curriculum to follow and support active outdoor teaching. We love food and welcome someone to create wonderful meals for the family a few nights a week.
This host offers a language exchange
We would like our children to learn new languages both for the ability to speak multiple languages but also for the challenge of learning.
