Letter to the family

Originally translated from Português
Dear family,

My name is Elena and I am a political science student at SciencePo University in Toulouse. I am looking for a Portuguese family with children to spend the summer of 2021. Two years ago, I had a wonderful experience as an Aupair in a French family and I am looking forward to starting again.
I have been learning Portuguese for a year and would like to improve my oral skills during my visit to Portugal. In addition to being a student, I have also been teaching languages ​​since I was 15 years old. I am bilingual in Spanish and French and have a C1 level of English. I would love to introduce your children to any of these languages ​​or help them practice, if they already speak it. I also worked as a nanny in a formal job.
I would like to start in June or July and can last between two to three months.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Elena

Experience

Originally translated from Português
When I was 14 years old, when I obtained my English certificate after a three-month stay in Ireland, I gave English classes to three children in my neighborhood in Spain.
My first employment contract was in London, I was only 16 in a restaurant. I quickly adapted to this professional environment but missed working with children.
So, when I moved to Paris, I worked with two boys, aged 4 and 6, every afternoon from Monday to Friday. I would pick them up from school, give them a bath and prepare dinner for them. Then, I helped them with their homework and taught them some words in my mother tongue, l'Spanish.
I had to quit this job when I started university. Now, since September, I work at the restaurant "A brewery" every afternoon and weekend.
In all these years it has not been easy to carry out my studies and a salaried activity at the same time, but that has made me a responsible, priority and orderly person and thanks to that I have a great experience in several fields.
In 2019 I had a very good experience with a French family in the south for 2 months. They had two children aged 10 and 12, we loved to play together and I taught them some spray painting techniques on cardboards. Nowadays they keep sending me pictures of their works of art. I would like to repeat this experience now with the aim of integrating me into Portuguese culture.
I have references for all my jobs and also the possibility to contact the families I worked for.
I am looking for a Portuguese family residing in Portugal or in any other country in Europe. I would like it if they have sons or daughters between the ages of 2 to 15 years. I would like to accompany them on their daily chores, go out to play sports with them, help around the house and spend time with their children.
