We are a family of three: My two children (Marina 12, Mateo 9 years old and me (Monica). We live in Madrid in a nice and well communicated by metro and buses zone in the city. We are a nice and lovely family and we like knowing people from other countries. We have a quiet and normal life: work, school, activities, the quiet that you can imagine in a big city!
I work as an Engineer in a Company and have to take care of my two children with no family help (my mum lives two hours from Madrid and sometimes comes if needed). Difficult to manage everything, so Workaway has been my salvation!
I can telecommute part of the worktime in the afternoons-evenings at home.
In our free time we enjoy watching films, listening to music and enjoy the numerous activities that Madrid offers.
Marina loves rhythmic gymnastics, arts and crafts, baking and playing piano, Mateo loves playing football and board games and I love dance, mainly ballet and contemporary dance, but also yoga, pilates..I am social conscious and am interested in volunteering in social issues, maybe I will be able to do it again when I retire!
We also enjoy the nature, so we go some weekends to a village where the grandparents live, near the small and beautiful city of Cuenca, and also to Valencia in the east coast, where I spent half of my life.

We like exchanging experiencies with people from other countries and lifestyles and make new friends. We will be glad to teach you Spanish and share our free time with you, but will also respect your independence. I am a very flexible and respectful woman.
We've been having several experiences with Workaway and the result is really positive, so we would like to continue!
I will be happy to provide you any further information you may need either by private messages here or by a Skype chat.
I am looking for an English-speaker, responsible and easygoing girl to help me with the children, taking them to school and to the different after-school activities, help them with their homework and playing with them in English, and the normal house-keeping. It would be fantastic if in addition you like cooking!
The time required will be:
- From 8 to 9 am: wake them up, prepare breakfast, tidy the house a little and take them to school (it's only 5 minutes walking).
- Then you will have the whole morning free till 4 pm, when you will have to pick them up from school and take Marina to rhythmic gymnastics classes twice a week. Also help them with homework/studying or help me with dinner (basic meals).
You will be free on the weekends as well.
The children are used to have Workawayers/Aupairs at home and they are very autonomous and obedient.
Spanish, English, a little German
We live in a wide, nice and luminous flat in the 10th floor (don't worry, there are four lifts! hahaha). The views of Madrid and the mountains in the north are amazing. You will have your own bedroom and bathroom. The flat has 4 bedrooms, a spacious living-room, a kitchen and two bathrooms, and also a little but charming terrace.
The metro is only two minutes walking from home and you can access the very downtown in only 30-40 minutes. There are also many buses. You won't need to drive at all. You have the advantages of living in the city and it is also a residential area with parks, trees and local commerce.
Madrid offers a very rich cultural life and free time activities. It is a live city and you can only walk in the city and have a wonderful time. It has many genuine bars, shopping, music and the gastronomy is really delicious. It has a really good public transport network. As it is in the centre of Spain, it's a perfect place to visit everywhere in Spain if you like travelling.
