The Experience

We need someone to teach individual English classes, the days off are gonna be on weekdays because we need to give the classes on the weekends. The work is very simple , but you have to have the classes already planned out for us to review the program first, we want to focus mainly on conversational English. Our workspace is really comfortable and the people here are really nice.

I had a great experience staying with the family. everyone made me feel extremely welcomed from the very first day! they were very accommodating and flexible. I've done many work trades and this family has been the best people I have stayed with so far. I never felt like I was out of place or had to be fearful of being in their space. the accommodation was very nice I got my own room and bathroom. They were often making me meals and I appreciate anytime I don't have to cook myself! overall this has been one of my best experiences so far I'm so sad I could only stay 2 weeks :(

Después de pasar 4 semanas compartiendo con la familia Ramírez, despedirse fue difícil.
Desde el primer día que llegué a su hogar me hicieron sentir cómoda y a gusto, nunca sentí que estaba en la casa de extraños.
Maternales está compuesto por un equipo de personas muy rico, profesionales y abiertos a cambios para prosperar como negocio, lo cual facilitó mucho mi labor y fue un honor ser parte de ello. Me siento muy agradecida porque nuestros caminos se hayan cruzado y me llena el corazón saber que gané una familia a 5000 km de mi casa.
