This month, Go Au Pair is featuring our Au Pairs from the country of Ukraine. I would love to share the profiles of two young ladies already in the country and seeking to match with American Host Families. These are more short-term placements than the usual, but both are already familiar with America, making the transition and homesickness issues less of a hassle.
Alona is available immediately and can provide affordable, live-in cultural childcare until mid-May, 2017. She is a 25 year old college graduate, trained in teaching, who speaks Russian, Ukrainian and English (rated 4 of 5). She has been living near Toledo, OH, caring for two children. She is hoping to find a traditional married couple or single mom with kids over 24 months.
Alona considers herself pretty self-organized, creative, responsive and positive; she says she enjoys volleyball, different sports activities, reading, cooking and doing handicrafts. Former employers have called her smart, kind, responsible and reliable. She is ready and willing to provide loving care to your children, while sharing her Ukrainian culture and learning more about our American culture.
Maybe you don’t need someone right away, but want to make sure the rest of the school year is covered. Consider 24 year old college graduate (TV and movie directing and production) Svitlana from Ukraine. She speaks English (rated 4 of 5), Russian and Ukrainian. Available for a nine-month placement beginning the first week of November, she is currently living in NYC, caring for 2 children. She would love to learn more about the American culture and another part of our beautiful nation.
Svitlana is hoping her new Host Family will be either a traditional married couple or single parent of either gender with kids 24 months or older. Svitlana can swim, cook, drive (since 1/2015) and doesn’t mind if you have pets of any kind. She says she loves film and anything associated with it, including cartoons, writing scripts and photography. She also enjoys bike riding. She says she wants to realize her childhood dream of visiting the country she has seen in so many movies and practice speaking with “natives.” I know your kids would love to teach her some American words and phrases!
