  • Description


    Hello! We are a fun and sociable family of three and we live in the hinterland of Varese near Milan (northern Italy); we love to joke, chat and welcome new members in our family :)

    We are looking for a shining girl to be our girl and take care of our daughter: Erica is a smiling and sweet 10 year old girl. girl, who will start the fourth year of elementary school in September. We are interested in growing up with bilingual education and cultural exchange. Our daughter does not speak English : if she does not know how to say something, she is still able to communicate using non-verbal gestures. In the worst case, it will ask you to use a translator.

    For this reason we are looking for an English speaker to start after the summer holidays
    We love jokes, smiling and having fun together. We live 10 km from Varese and 50 from Milano, in a city about 3,000 inhabitants. I (mom) and my husband work full time, so we are used to spending all our free time with Erica.

    Erica, likes swimming, artistic gymnastics, movies and TV series, sea and mountains, literature. We are a very well organized family and we love to plan, speak and clarify the cultural differences between our cultures.

    I work in the commercial sector and my husband in the industrial sector but in the evening we are always at home and sometimes even during the day.
    HELP PROGRAM: From Monday to Friday we will have breakfast together and then we will ask you to bring Erica to school, which is 5 minutes walk (300 meters). Then you will be free until 13 or 16 (time to collect the girl from school) if you return at 13 from school you will have to prepare lunch for both. We'll be back around 7.30-8.00 pm, at this moment you can only play, have fun and have dinner. We will ask you to stay with Erica if she is sick.
