I am an ESL teacher for over 15 years. I am a mom, my son 3 years old, he's a very smart active boy. I am also a Reiki Master and music lover.
I've been teaching English online and face-to-face to private students and it' s been challenging to manage my working hours with my son's needs. So the help would consist of giving attention, playing, taking him to the beach which is a 10 minute walk from my house, creating interesting activities to have fun with Lucca while I prepare my classes and teach. I've been in need of turning on the TV so I can work properly, but I am not a fan of screens for his age.
I am looking for someone who could also give a hand with some house chores, maybe a little cooking if you enjoy it, of course, and hang out with Lucca and me through the island's natural spots. Although now we are during a pandemic situation, there aren't too many options besides going to the beach for a little while. Our mean of transportation is a bike, so we are able to do the walks nearby together. But surely I'll give you directions to go to different spots if you enjoy going by yourself. A plus is, if my son's godfather is available, he'll be glad to take you to some nice spots of the islands.
I also would love to practice and improve my English skills with a native English speaker! No need to speak Portuguese at all. My son is used to the language and it would be perfect to develop his language skills.
I've already been a workawayer myself, when I was backpacking in Europe in 2016. I've stayed in he Netherlands, France, Belgium, the UK, Irland, Italy, and Malta. Workaway was what made this trip possible and now I am glad to offer this opportunity to someone coming to one of the most beautiful islands in Brazil. If you found us here and felt this might be a calling for you, write to us and please let us know why you've chosen us as hosts.
Initially, I'll always a suggest a one week experience so we can measure how much and for how long we would like and would be possible to stay together.

From Monday to Friday I need most of the help. So the help could be something similar to the following:
*On Mondays and Wednesdays*
In the morning- Help with the house chores then you' re free
In the afternoon I need help with Lucca from 1:30 to 6pm
*On Tuesdays and Thursdays*
In the morning- Help with Lucca from 8:00 to 12.
in the afternoon from 1:30 to 5:30
Morning:Help with house chores, then you're free
Help with Lucca from 1:30 to 6pm
*Saturdays and Sundays*
We can plan something together but we haven't been hanging out due to the pandemic stituation.
You can also have a whole weekend only for yourself. We can talk about it and plan it within our needs and intentions.
I appreciate help with the chores on the weekends, but nothing specific. Just the basics to keep the house pleasant for ourselves! I can suggest and help you organize short trips to the isolated beaches that you can go through trails, go camping or stay in an inn.
Regardless the schedule, dealing with child's needs requires a flexible response and attitude. They have a thousand different reactions throughout the day, and if you're here, he'll be constantly wishing to interact and expecting interaction. We can work this out together, as it will be something new to all of us.

We live in a story house downtown nearby banks, supermarkets, beaches, and the like.
There are 2 bedrooms in the house.
Lucca would probably sleep in me bedroom, it is something he always does. And you would sleep in his bedroom.
We'd share the shower. There is another toillet downstairs.
(due to the pandemic of covid-19, these attractions are restricted, though you can still walk around the beach, explore trails and waterfalls, order food and take it out,)
During your time off you can explore the island going to the beaches, waterfalls, shipwreck museum, nice restaurants around, live music shows (now not so often due to covid) some for free, others in local bars.
The neighbour cities are very beautiful as well and you can enjoy on the weekend. There are local communities beaches to visit where you can go camping or stay in an inn.
You can ride a bike which I can lend you one and you can also go through nice trails if you like walking.
