Letter to the family

Hello family!

My name is Valeria Vélez, I would like to be able to work for you because I want to learn about your culture and your way of life; On the other hand, I would like to participate in the education of a child by teaching him a little about Latin American culture and why not? some Spanish, if possible. I also want to learn your language, I am very interested in learning a new language and making friends elsewhere.

For your part, you should know that I am a very responsible, respectful and dedicated person. As I can remember, I have liked children and I believe that you can learn a lot from them, so you can be sure that I will do my best to help you and the children, as much as I can.

I have experience working with children in the Czech Republic, Vietnam, Turkey, Italy and my last experience was in Monaco.

However, most of my experiences have only been for short three month stints and now I am looking for something long term, a year would be great.

In one of my experiences as an au pair, in Vienna, March 2020, I met who is now my partner. We have been traveling together and are looking for a long term job opportunity to settle down for a while. He is Australian and has experience working with children as a volunteer tutoring in English lessons. He also has many years of cooking experience in different restaurants and hotels. This is his profile:

We can't wait to hear from you. I think we would be perfect for large families or people who require different types of help :)

Experience

My first experience as a babysitter was 6 years ago, when I started taking care of babies in a base of children with AIDS. I was working in this foundation for almost a year and, already having work experience, I started looking for paid employment in this area.


To help in their training process, I have created different games in which the children have learned some English words, such as the name of the animals, and have developed learning and communication skills thanks to these games and activities.

Last year I was working with a family in the Czech Republic with 4 children, one of them had autism, so I also have experience with children with disabilities.

Then I went to work as an English teacher in Vietnam, I was teaching children from 3 to 15 years old, an activity that had given me many new experiences and knowledge.

I also had an experience in northern Italy with a lovely family, I was taking care of an 8 year old girl, and it was great. My last work experience was in Monaco with a 9 month old baby

Why would you like to become an au pair abroad?

I think that becoming an au pair abroad is a great enrichment for me, because I can get to know the culture of the place from within, it is also good to learn about the customs, language, foods, etc., of each city and country. .

On the other hand, I want to be able to teach other people some things about my culture, prepare food for my host family and be able to contribute to the education and education of the child that I will take care of.

I love traveling and learning so much! That is why I want to find a family, move, take care of their children and learn new things.

I am a very calm, responsible, creative, respectful, honest, friendly and very attentive person, I am always aware of everything I can help. I like to go to the cinema, listen to music, travel, go to the theater and museums; In general, I am a lover of cultural plans.
