Hello there!
My name is Luka and I was raised in a small village in the south of Germany. I’m very outgoing and am interested in so many topics that I’m sure me and you or me and your child will find something fun to talk about!:) I am also a hard-working and extremely motivated person who would love to engage in creative activities, teach, play games or sing with and make your child feel comfortable as best I can. I believe in a tidy house and will keep your apartment/house spick and span if that is important to you! I am also very fond of cooking healthy meals and coming up with my own recipes.
If you’d like I‘d tutor your child/your children in the subjects you like. My strengths lie in Music, Mathematics, Sciences and Languages.

I am equally motivated to work as a caregiver for elderly. I have had lots of experience in this field by looking after my grandma regularly. In fact she is planning to move in with us next year. I regard the work I‘ve done for her as an opportunity to be successful as a caregiver to you. On the other hand I see opportunity in the work I can do for you, for it will prepare me to care for my grandma from day to day in the future.
The other part of my experience comes from working in an old people‘s home, which was an experience I am deeply grateful for.

My mother taught me English and French alongside German while I was growing up. In doing so she kindled my interest to explore and live in different parts of the world. It has only been growing stronger the more experience I’ve had living abroad so I can’t wait to meet you!

I have wanted to be an au pair ever since our family hosted our first au pair when I was 9. We have had nine since then from Britain, Canada, France, Madagaskar and the USA. The memories I have from those times, for example listening to pop music for the first time or being taught guitar, are amongst the fondest of my childhood. Therefore I feel like I want to give something back as an au pair that I learnt from the young adults that stayed with us.
After watching how they took care of me and my little brother and sister it was my turn to look after my siblings when I was old enough. I am now used to looking after them during weekends now and then and tutoring them in mathematics or other subjects during the week.

I can think of few things as instructive and rewarding for life than connecting with and learning from a foreign family. This is why I stayed with a host family for the first time when I was 13 and lived with an American family for a year as a foreign exchange student at the age of 15. I learned many lessons about adapting to a new family’s rules and different social skills by trying to get close to every family member. I believe that this has prepared me immensely for living abroad once again and showing responsibility by being there for your child in any way you need.

Experience

So far I have been fortunate to live with and learn from six host families. Over the years I have looked after and taught different kids, from my (host) siblings to children at my school.

At ages 13/14 I had my first experiences with foreign host families when I took part in exchange programs from my school. I experienced life with two host families from Versailles, France and with one from Barcelona, Spain.

At 15 I lived in an American household for a year. I learned a lot from looking after my then 10-year-old host sister Julianna. I was in charge of cooking together and making sure that she did her homework or practised on her violin. As an effort to become close to her I would make her drawings and be delighted when eventually I got more and more back.
I was even so lucky as to look after our neighbours’ newborn baby during my year abroad when its parents wanted a quiet night out. Cleaning him, giving him food or making sure that he didn’t put any toys into his mouth were things that I knew from having baby siblings. I had loved helping to look after my sister when she was a baby, but this was a totally different experience because this time I was fully responsible.

I am most happy when I learn new things or can help others to do so, so I would be delighted to tutor your kids if you would like. For I have decided that, even though I don’t want to become a teacher like my mum, I do want to teach children for a period of time. I have greatly enjoyed my own studies and try to invent new teaching and learning methods to make my learning more fun, unique and effective. I am currently using these methods with my siblings to help them learn more effectively. My previous experience also includes tutoring kids from my school in Germany.
Due to the pandemic I am now teaching online on a plattform called italki.
