Letter to the family

Dear family,

my name is Carolin, I am from Germany and 20 years old.

I'm looking for a short term stay from the 22th March for 3 or 4 weeks.

I have a got a lot of experience in taking care of children, especially because I was an au pair in China for almost 1,5 years until last December, taking care of children aged 3 to 11. But I have also got experience with older children as I was a chess teacher in primary and secondary school.

I speak German, English and Russian fluently. I can also have a normal conversation in Chinese. In school I studied Latin and Classical Greek (although the have no use nowadys ;-))

I really like the au pair programme, because I think it has big advantages for both sides. I can get to know new people and a new culture. I can also do what I really love: taking care of children. It makes me happy when I see that the children enjoy spending time with me. Even if they might not say it, especially if they are teenagers, but I can always see how grateful the are and that makes me very happy. Furthermore children learn very fast: when a three year old child can spell her and her brother's name in a foreign language, it just blows my mind. I want to help them to develop more.

If you have any questions, just send me a message!

Experience

My biggest experience is being an au pair in China. My main task was to teach the children English during lessons or in a playful way. The children were aged 3 to 11. I would also take them to school/kindergarten or after school activities. After playing I would guide to put back their toys. We would often play with their toys or read books, but also do some handicrafts, cooking, drawing, go shopping, to a book shop, swimming visit a museum or clean our rooms etc. Sometimes I would also help the children with everyday task, like going to the toilet, changing clothes, putting them to bed, feeding them, taking a shower, etc. To sum it up: Just showing them some love.
Before that I was a chess teacher in different primary and secondary schools as well as in my local chess club. I also looked after children/teenagers aged 7 to 16 at weekend chess camps. I also attended some seminars in order to become a better teacher and friend for the children.
If you want to know more about my child care experience, just send me a message.
