Letter to the family

Dear potential host family,

My name is Abigail and I am writing to express my interest in an Au Pair and/or a Live-In Tutor position. I believe my skills and background make me an ideal fit for the role.

Throughout the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic -- from August 2020-January 2021 -- I served as a part-time nanny for two families: one family with two daughters ages 4 and 8, and the other family with a daughter and son ages and 12. In my experience with both families, I completed necessary house-hold tasks such as cooking meals, washing, drying, and folding laundry, as well as cleaning when necessary. I also aided in the completion of homework assignments, played games during down-time, and enforced any household rules.

As a biology and Spanish major at Bucknell University, I also have employment experience in academia in which I was a teaching assistant in a laboratory. In this position, I aided in the instruction of laboratory lessons and teachings in which I led laboratory lectures, proctored laboratory quizzes and exams, and assisted students with laboratory assignments.

I believe you will find that I am structure-oriented, a hard-worker, and am thoroughly motivated to complete the tasks expected of me. In an Au Pair and/or a Live-In tutor Position, I can bring my knowledge and experience as a nanny and a teaching assistant to the job.

Experience

I would like to become an Au Pair and/or a Live-in Tutor abroad for the professional and life experiences that the opportunity presents to me. In the Spring of 2021, I intended to study abroad through the Bucknell en España program in which I would study Spanish and live with a host-family in Granada, Spain. Due to COVID-19, the program was canceled. I have been taking Spanish since I was 11 years old and still lack fluency, so I believe that a full cultural immersion is necessary for my progression towards complete fluency. Outside of the benefits of cultural immersion, I will also gain professional experience in working abroad.

Due to my experience in teaching and passion for childcare, I have gained an interest in these positions. I believe it would be a beneficial experience for both parties involved, that being the family I am hosted by and myself.
