  • Description

    Hello !
    First of all, I point out that I am only interested in offers abroad.
    I am 58 years old. I practiced various professions, but especially: teacher in primary schools, maintenance of green spaces, small experiments in the trades of the houses (interior), bookseller and second-hand dealer. I am now retired. I discovered Workaway thanks to my daughter (I have 2 children: 23 and 25). I have been divorced for several years. I like to work, to travel. I am rather quiet, and I like the human contacts.
    After having started with Workaway by offering manual help in homes (tiling, painting, gardening, clearing, etc.), health problems concerning my back, force me to offer very different aids, but which I like as much:
    * school support / language teaching. 1) I was a former teacher and am able to teach French to natives of any country, even if I don't practice their mother tongue. I have done this work in the past. 2) I am able to teach English: beginner level, as well as 1st, 2nd and 3rd year, to natives of all countries. 3) I can offer tutoring in all subjects, primary school level, but only to children or adults who have at least an average level in French.
    * Completely different: I worked as a second-hand dealer within an association. It's a passion. I could help a person (merchant or private individual) who needs a person to restore old objects to their original condition, or to show them off, place them in a store, etc ...
    * Finally, I would be comfortable in a hotel, or other form of reception area, to receive clients who speak French. This type of work would also interest me, if I had to receive a clientele speaking English ... but, in the latter case, I would need 1 to 3 weeks to become really comfortable.
    * Any proposal allowing me to improve my level in English would interest me a lot. Learn Spanish, too.
    Don't hesitate to ask me for any details.
    Best regards. Jean-Luc
