CULTURAL CARE

Hello, Host Family!
My name is Mariana, I live in Rio de Janeiro-Brazil and I am ready to be an Au pair.
In Rio, we have a hot weather almost the whole year and there are a lot of beaches in the city. Here, besides being a big city, we have nature and I like spending time there always when it's possible. In my spare time, I like reading, listening to songs, doing outdoor activities and I enjoy spending time with my family.
Qualities I have that will make me a great Au pair:
1. Responsibility.
2. Calm and patient person.
3. I'm good at paying attention to details.
4. I like to be organized and following rules.
5. If you want your kids to have a reading habit, you can count on me to make this happen.
6. I can help with their homework.
7. I can have a flexible schedule during the week.
8. I can work during the weekend if you need me and we talk in advance.
I got my driver's license recently. I had 20 practicing classes before my exam, and I am going to pay for extra classes before I leave Brazil. Also, I'm opened to practice more when I am in your country, so I can drive an automatic car and get used to the city. This way, you are going to feel comfortable with me driving your kids.
Additionally, I want to be an Au pair in order to have the experience of living abroad, learning English, becoming an independent person and learning about the American culture while working with children, which is something I love to do. You can be sure I will do it lovely and carefully. I am excited and interested to know more about your family, your kids, your routine and what you enjoy doing together.
Thank you so much for reading my letter. If you want to know me better, I'll be happy and grateful.
I hope to hear from you soon!
*I am available as soon as you need me

Experience

I worked in a daycare/pre school as a secretary during 1 year and 2 months. After that, I volunteered to help a teacher, so I could have experience with kids and make this program happen. In this classroom, the kids were around 5 years old. I used to assist the teacher when a child needed to go to the bathroom, when they needed some water and during their break to eat.
Also, I teach 2 kids (7 and 10 years old) their homework when they arrive from school. I try to make it in an easier way, so they won't see it as a boring and hard activity. Sometimes some kids don't want to it, and we need to be calm and patient.
Working with them taught me to be more empathetic and helped me to understand that each child has their own time and characteristics. That's why It's important to be kind and respectful to make them trust you. It's the best sensation when they say how much they like you. It means you're doing a good job.
Since I was 13 years old I always wanted to have the experience of living abroad, leraning the language and about the country. I love kids and this is the perfect opportunity to do it while I take care of them
