Hello, lovely parents in my neighbourhood, I moved with my partner and our youngest son last year in March, just before lockdown from Germany to New Zealand. As we have already three grown-up boys currently studying in Germany and Japan, I am a experienced mother, but also since I can remember, I love to be with children, to listen, to share and to help them. I studied Roman and Slavonic Linguistics and Literature, as well as German as a Foreign Language. And I especially love to teach children the languages. Currently, I am leading a course for bilingual English-German kids, most from Steiner School in Christchurch. I am very sensitive to the challenges for bilingual kids and their parents. It was a central topic in my studies, and it was and still is also my own experience. If you feel somehow connected to what I am writing, I would love to care for your small loved ones. And I would like to offer this at my home as well as in your home. We live near the Old School Reserve, and our household strives to be organic, zero waste and eco-friendly, where we live with our two young buddgi. At school hours, our son Nick is happily visiting the Nova Montessori School in New Brighton. I would love to find a part-time permanent role and to contribute my part to the household or garden if you wish. I hold a certificate in whole food nutrition and hooked on plant-based nourishing and nurturing food. I also will be available flexible and with short notice for some hours day- and night time Thank you so much for your time, and I hope to meet you soon! All the best Tamara
