Introduction to families
Dear Potential family, My name is Martha. I really value family and my family have close relationships. Why I would make the perfect au pair, I would make the perfect aupair for your family because I have such a love and passion for kids. I would make the perfect au pair because I am a very caring and soft-hearted young lady so I would be able to take good care of the children/individuals, paying attention to their specific needs, wants and feelings. I am a student, studying so I am constantly gaining new knowledge and skills and am actively learning so am open to always learning and expanding my abilities, skills and knowledge. I think because of my family, I know how important family is, what it needs and thrives on and how to be part of a family. I was always a good student at school so I am academically strong and will be able to provide proficient skills, knowledge, etc. I am also into keeping fit so am open to being active with the kids, in whichever way they prefer. I can also be very assertive when it comes down to serious business to ensure that all tasks gets done and to the best of our abilities.
I have been working with children ever since. I have been helping also with special needs kids. I have also been working at pre schools. I have a lot of patience and I am a very caring, loving person.
Teaching children with their homework, cleaning, dancing, listen to music I enjoy music, making meaningful connections, playing instruments (piano, trumpet and more), health, beauty and fitness really interests me, so going to the gym and keeping fit is one of my hobbies.

I mainly baby sat her and helped her with her homework. She needed remedial help so I would spend a lot of time making games that would make reading and writing more exciting, including doing things like bedtime reading and acting out the story lines to increase her interest.
