  • Description


    Hi! I live in the small capital city of La Rioja, Logroño (Spain). I'm looking for someone to fill in for me September 2019-December 2019 (with a possibility to extend contract though the end of May 2019) in the afternoons (3-4hrs a day, Monday-Thursday) teaching small children (ages 1.5 to 8) English through music and song. I have my own business where I have integrated the teaching of English into a fun-filled hour of musical instruments, songs, games, poems and much more. You would help me plan and implement these classes given to several different sets of students throughout the week. Note: Children under the age of three are always accompanied by a parent.

    I would be responsible for finding and paying for apartment/shared space in the city center and would also pay an hourly wage - this would be dependent on your experience with children as well as teaching English. You would be responsible for your meals, cleaning your personal space, etc.

    Employer speaks both English and Spanish.

    Logroño is 1.5hrs from the Northern coast of Spain (Bilbao, San Sebastian areas) and 3.5 hours north of Madrid. The location is great for traveling and the city is very attractive and easy to get around.

    Logroño is a beautiful, small city with a lot of character. The wine harvest festival is always the 2nd and 3rd week of September, which you will have time off to enjoy.

Since you will have 3 day weekends, this will give you time to travel not only in La Rioja, but in surrounding provinces as well as other cities in Europe. Bilbao has an international airport that is located only 1.5 hours from Logroño.
