Letter to the family

Hello, dear au pair hosts
Thank you for participating


This autumn I moved to Berlin, without knowing anyone in the whole country, without my parents or friends. It was tough but I believe it pushes me to crave for more and to broaden my horizons. Needless to say, how thankful I am to my parents.

Now I am looking for a nice family, willing to find a girl, who fluently speaks 3 languages (Russian, English, German and French (a1.3) and have some life experience.
I would like to start at the end of May and continue till the end of July (approx. 26th May-26th July). I need to warn you that on the 4th of July I need to be in Berlin to get my diploma and to apply for another educational Organisation in order to continue my studies.
I want to book the tickets and have some stated plans for my summer in advance, so in case I don't find a host family till 16th of May, I won't participate(

But before and after this time (the end of May-June-July) I am able to be an au pair.
As I need to pay for the flight/bus..(?) and I don’t want to be a burden for my parents financially I might not accept very small salaries. Though I know au pair is not about the salary



Here in Berlin, I rent a room in a flat where the family with 2 kids live. We get along really well. And I can also provide my Couchsurfing references.
I have never been a professional babysitter, but I worked as an English tutor, which I enjoy a lot.
I also organized meetings for schoolchildren and made excursions for foreign exchanges.
I am actually way more modest than this description but I wanted to give you some information.

Experience

I have a little brother (our age gap is only 4 years)
Frankly speaking, I am not an experienced teacher or baby-sitter, but I worked as an english coach and organized a speaking-club in my gymnasium.I've also been to various summer camps and helped to take care of small children
Also since October I live in a family with 2 kids, we get along very well.

I have travelled with Couchsurfing and I have met a lot of very different people who made my time in a new country very memorable. Or at least, they shared some knowledge with me, and it might have contributed to who I am now.
I love traveling, but sometimes you need to find a place for working as well or to have a more lasting experience living in an unknown place.
I’ve traveled to Milano this winter and thanks to Couchsurfing lived In a villa where 3 generations live together . Some of them didn’t even speak English, which might have been a problem, but bc of my interest in languages I understand some phrases out of context or background knowledge. I love Italy and I really want to be a part of its life and culture. Italian language sounds ver appealing to me and I am trying to understand it and the opportunity to learn it makes me excited.

I am interested in cognitive science, which is an area of science that describes how the information is being processed by humans. It is also about psychology and habits, about how fast a child can learn a language in childhood. How flexible is the skill to learn something in this age, and if I can observe it and contribute to it, I am glad to be an au pair .I am very responsible and try to take a good care of your children. Also I love to walk, to do sightseeing, so you don’t need to entertain me:)
