I'm a 25 year old Spanish girl looking forward to enjoying the Au pair experience again. 5 years ago I went to Italy and took care of two lovely girls; now I have decided it's time to do it again!
I'm currently majoring in English Linguistics and Literature, but because I am doing distance college I am able to work abroad at the same time. I am currently providing after-school instruction in English with kids 2 to 5 at a local school until the end of May.
I would like to be an Au pair again because I found that it was a very enriching experience and I feel it is the right time to do it again. Working with children can be challenging at times, a normal week for me translates into teaching and entertaining about 12 kids, so I know how important it is to be patient and responsible but also creative and fun! I believe you can learn (languages, values, homework...) at the same time you have a good time, they are kids after all! But I am also aware that they need to have boundaries and you need to be serious at times so things don't get out of control.
I also continue to tutoring children and adults, something I have done since I was 16.
My hobbies include travelling and exploring different cultures: I lived for a year in Warsaw, Poland (where I had the opportunity to travel very easily around Europe from there) and 6 months in the US. I also enjoy crafting and painting with watercolors, reading Greek Mythology... as much I enjoy outdoor activities.
I also enjoy cooking and not just Spanish recipes! I have a lot of fun trying new Asian recipes, veggie Thai rice is my favorite.
Driver's license since 2014; British Council APTIS C certificate; Criminal record checks (both the "general" one and the one that enables you to work with children in Spain).
I have extensive experience taking care of children with children from 1 to 16: I have been an au pair, I've been tutoring since I was in high school and I continue to do so at the same time I work at a local school with children from 3 to 5. I have also been a babysitter in multiple occasions. I can provide references if needed.
I am available from June and would like to stay for 3 to 6 months but would consider staying long period. I could also start in late April but would have to come back to Spain for a week in june for my tests.
