Introduction to families
Dear Host Family My name is Tiani, I am a 21-year-old female. I come from a family of 5: My mom, Landi works at an auditor’s firm as a tax administrator while my dad, Schalk is self-employed as an electrician. My eldest sister, Tinese is a SAICA clerk at my mother’s work. My second eldest sister, Tinitha is also a clerk at a auditor’s firm in Pretoria. In about two+ years I plan to pursue a bachelor’s degree, but I am yet to make up my mind concerning my future area of specialization. So, at the moment, I would like to take some time out of academics to have a different life experience, and to have time to calmly reflect on my future academic/professional orientation. My first language is Afrikaans, but I am fluent in English as well. I started speaking English at a young age and have also have a certificate to teach English as a second language/foreign language. I am currently studying Korean and Mandarin and am at beginners’ level but would like to become fluent in the next 2-3 years. I am otherwise interested in learning other languages as well. When it comes to childcare experience, I have looked after children in informal contexts. I often babysat for family members. The children I babysat were as young as a few months old and up to the age of 17. Regarding older children, I played an au pair roll, which included taking and bringing back from school (1+ year of driving experience), driving them to extra activities, doctor visits, helping with projects and schoolwork and tutoring in subjects when needed. Regarding younger children, it was mostly everyday care, if the children where a bit older (<1 year), I would look for stimulating activities to help with development. I also helped a few times at my friend’s mom after school centrum (age 7+). As someone that would often babysit for family members and the little formal experience I had, I can comfortably say that I sincerely enjoy spending time with children. For the last year (2023) I have worked with an amazing family, who has a 5-year-old son and a 14-year-old son (grade 8). My duties included transportation, helping the 5-year-old with any homework from school as well therapy. For the 14-year-old I took over academics, including helping with homework, projects, exams preparations, studying and communication with his teachers regarding his academics. I would be happy to have the opportunity to speak with you: to answer whatever questions you may have about me or my childcare experiences; to learn more about your family; your interests and to know more about what you expect from the au pair arrangement. Thank you very much for your interest in my application! I look forward to hearing from you. Yours Sincerely, Tiani
I often spend time with children virtually as an online TEFL teacher, and someone that babysits for family frequently, I really do enjoy spending time with children. I love teaching and I find that babysitting gives me the opportunity teach the children. I enjoy spending time with them and being involve in their day-to-day activities. Driving the children around when needed (3+ of driving experience), helping with school projects or homework, tutoring in subjects when needed, would help with any challenges that may present itself to the best of my abilities. Would help young children with activities that could develop skills, like reading or writing. I believe that I would be a great fit for your family because I will go more than the extra mile when or where it matters. I believe that becoming an au pair will allow me to combine my love of learning, teaching and children.
I've always had a strong interest in culture, music, and the arts. I speak Afrikaans (Native) and English (Fluent). I'm currently learning Korean (Beginner) and would love to further learn Japanese, Mandarin, Vietnamese, Spanish, and French. Different cultures have always attracted my interest, especially Asian-culture, because I find their culture, history, and mythology extremely interesting. Overall, I do enjoy learning about others and am very open-minded towards adjusting to and trying out different experiences. Music-wise, I enjoy a wide variety of genres and like exploring songs from different languages. Currently, I'm listening to a lot of Japanese and Korean artists. I myself play some piano and guitar and would love to learn how to play violin and cello.   I'm an avid reader and writer, and I do enjoy some good literature. After my time as an au pair, I would like to take on a role that would allow me to travel and continue to learn about the different worlds out there. I believe that true wealth comes from knowledge, and I love learning. I like to think that the perfect job for me would be volunteering as a teacher. This will allow me to travel and meet new people while helping others and teaching them new and exciting things.
