Home in Turkey
İzmir is a nice city with seashore and historical places. İt’s the third biggest city in Turkey. We live in city center. Our house is only 2 minutes to subway stop and 10 minutes to seaside by walking. At the seaside you can rent and ride bike.. There are many bars, clubs, site-seeing, resaurants, shopping, bazaars, etc in İzmir. The weather is usually sunny. Urla/Seferihisar are 30 minutes or çeşme/Alaçatı is 1 hour or Kuşadası 1,5 hour far to us. Also Efes and Şirince is so close to İzmir. If you like history and villiages I guess you will have fun. You can go Bodrum easly for weekends. if you want to go to Kios (a nice Greek Island) from Çeşme it takes 15 minutes by ship.(and it is also cheap).

We are a family, living in İzmir in Turkey. We have two sons. The bigger one is 8 years old and the little one is only 5 years old. We are looking for a bigger sister to them who knows German or English or French and also talkative (chatterbox) :) Because we hope to improve their language skills. They already know German and English, and know basic French.
Fom 15th september to 15th june; they go to school between 7:30 am to 17:30 pm. so we need help after 17:30 for weekdays and for weekends between 15:00 to 19:30. we can be flexible about the times and days and of course you can choose your off days.
They don`t go to nursery in the summers. For july and august we need help esspecially in the mornings nearly 5 hours. But sure then you will be free about your own programme.
They can already understand German and English. They like playing chess, drawing pictures, listening/telling stories (esspecially about dragons, dinosaurs and pirates.. ) So at the evenings and weekends we would like you to spend time wıth them, doing language practice to help them become fluent. So actually it is not a real babysitting or childcare position, it is a teaching pozition.
