My name is
Hi, I’m Alvaro. I’m from Valencia (Spain) and I’m looking for a family to live with.
I am full of optimism for my first as an au pair.
I have to confess, I describe myself as a shy person at the beginning. I guess like most people at first. However, when I get some familiarity I think I’m more talkative, agreeable and cheerful. I like to spend fun times and laugh. Above all, I believe I’m a sociable, active and open minded.
Furthermore, I consider I’m polite and responsible, knowing how to behave depending on the situation.
I’ve just finished my degree studies in mechanical engineering. Now that I have ended it, I consider it’s the time to go away and learn and live new experiences.
Regarding to work experience, during my two firsts years of university I work as a teacher of private classes to high school children. I usualy tried to help them with science subjects, above all mathmatics.
Then I’ve worked as a trainee engineer during something more than one year.
I would like to be au pair for different reasons. Firstly, to learn and improve my English knowledge. Secondly, because I consider it a perfect opportunity to exchange thoughts and see different habits than in my country. Another point it’s to get a great experience and know new people.
I wouldn’t have problem to do some housework, pick up the children from the school, play with them, practise any sport with them or do any other task to help.
I would like to be in a family where I could be more than an invited with the time, becoming their friend.
Unfortunately, although I like them, I have to confess I haven't got a lot of experience taking care of children. Above all I like to play with them. When my cousins were little I usually play with them, making them laugh and taking care of them. However, if I was chosen by a family I wolud be more comitted.
