The Ideal Sitter for this Job

Experience with tutoring or education with these ages as homework and school has become so important and challenging with the virtual learning. Education is so important for them and they really want to focus on this. Someone organized, reliable, and punctual. Familiarity with Google Classrooms. Pushing the boys to excel at their school work. Allowing the boys to have their free time when it becomes available to them. The boys have always connect to their au pairs in the past really well. They like people who are friendly and fundamentally nice and kind. Someone who can connect with them, but also hold them accountable and maintain a boundary. The boys can sense when they can get away with something and they will push against doing things like homework, so someone who can establish the authority with them. A native french speaker would be fantastic! Mom is French and they've previously had au pairs from France, so they are hoping to keep their french in tact.


The core schedule is Monday to Friday, from 9-6 PM. If school reopens, there may be a shift in scheduling, though the family is happy to guaranteeat least 40 hours/week.
