  • Description


    Our family has 4 components: Enrico 53 years old, Anna 46, Giorgio 13 and Lucio 10.
    Anna and Enrico work together in their own private school.
    We all practice a lot of sports as tennis, kick boxe and crossfit.
    In our free time we enjoy meeting friends, new people and travelling.
    We live in Alessandria, a small town in Piemonte with about 100 thousand residents; is quiet and it can be easily visited by bike or walking. Alessandria is less than 1 hour driving far from Milano, Torino and Genova, so is close both sea and mountains. The country surrounding the town is very nice and the food is amazing.

    We are looking for someone mature and responsible who speaks English with our kids, they are grown and responsible enough , so it wouldn't be hard to share time with them. At the moment their English speaking level is quite good despite the age.
