We are an Italian family of 6.
Our kids are 3 boys 12, 13 and 17 years old and a 16 years old girl.
I run a Culinary School, a charming B&B and work as an event planner in Venice.
My husband is an entrepreneur part of an historical Venetian family making art glass from 23 generations.
We live in the island of Lido just a few minutes from the beautiful Venice.
We live in a big Villa surrounded by a beautiful garden three minutes walk from the beach.
We are looking for someone smiling, trustworthy, energetic, patient and playful to help with the two youngest kids after school.
We are a welcoming family, very open to other cultures and both, me and my husband love to travel also with our kids and we even lived for almost 10 years in USA.

This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
You will have chance to experience Italian lifestyle in a beautiful historical city. The majority of the day you will be free to explore the main city and all the island surrounding Venice. Also being part of our family you will have chance to learn about Italian cuisine because I hold many cooking class with foreign guest every week so if you like you can take part of this class learning at the same time the traditional Italian cooking having cultural exchange with the other guest of the class.
If you like you can also learn or improve your Italian talking with me and the two oldest children.
We will be happy to have someone looking forward this chance getting the most out of this experience, exploring the city, being positive and curious.
We would like some basic cleaning to be done in the youngest boys room: making their beds, organizing their toys and their clothes and their school books.
Mainly we need big help every afternoon to organize all their daily homework.
You will be free all day up to 3,30 pm when the youngest boy comes home.
The youngest boy (12th) goes in Italian school. So you can help him with some simple English, Spanish homework and make sure he completes all the rest of his homework. If no homework are left you can play to a board game to help his English or Spanish conversation skills.
The girl (16 years old, second grade high school) needs to practice every day Math at least one our.
So she will seat with you between 3,30 and 4,30 to be help with the Math program.
For the rest of the homework she is independent and she manage by herself.
Normally for 5,30 they both finish so you'll have some time off/break before the other 2 kids arrive
At 6pm the oldest boy will arrive from school and he will need some assistance with his Math homework as well (high school level , he is 17th). 45-50 minutes and he will go to complete the rest of his homework by himself.
So the last boy will start and normally he needs maximum 1,5 hours (7-8,30 pm ) of tutoring because he is the one that goes in international school but still not fluent. So he really needs help to check and organize all his homework at the same time also needs to be encourage to do some of it by himself in order to stimulate some of self organizing skills .
At 8-8,30 we have dinner
If you share dinner with us and as an adult in a busy family we would appreciate help in the house in small things like setting up the table or loading/unloading the dishwasher just as any member of the family.
The 13 years old boy that goes International school he is the one to be help also every Saturday morning when he is more fresh and collaborative :)....the evening weekly time it's left to complete and finalize homework that are mainly manage during Saturday morning .
You will be free from Saturday at 2pm until Monday at 3,30 pm.
The main focus is for us to improve our boys' English, Spanish and Math skills and engage them with board games ecc... in order to keep them entertained and not always on video games or television.
For this position we offer also weekly pocket money because we need a serious constant commitment.
If you have any skill or special talent that you are happy to teach to our kids we will be happy of that.
