Introduction to families
Dear Parent, I am a totally committed and vastly experienced tutor/child minder with lots of common sense. I speak fluent English and Afrikaans, which is my home language. I am also a freelance artist/designer. As a single mother of three interesting and successful adult children, I can honestly say that I have been exposed to most challenges that a parent could face. My greatest attribute with regard to children, is that I understand and respect them. I believe a child will achieve a happy and successful future through feeling empowered and being inspired to enjoy knowledge. I most certainly do not underestimate the perceptive mind of a child. I try to give children the security to express themselves freely and assist them to develop their full potential with confidence and responsibility. I have a compassionate personality and a giving, nurturing heart. A bonus though, is my playful creativity. I am an out of the box thinker and enjoy stimulating a child's mind with play-acting or dramatising stories or songs and am rewarded by the development and growth such interactions result in and the joy we share. I have taught Afrikaans second language to teenagers in between au pairing and had excellent rapport with them. While taking care of my granddaughters in the UK, I was taken aback by how nonchalant some of the young care-takers were, how they were more interested in amusing themselves with chatting to each other, reading or studying, rather than focusing on the children and forever on their phones. When you leave your child in my care, I am 100% engaged in your child’s life. There is always a lot of happiness and warmth, care and play in the making when I am around. I am not merely a charge - I dedicate myself to a child as a developing human being and love and care for them as I would, and have done for my own. I would be an intelligent, confident, calm, practical and responsible caretaker of your most precious child. For the past year, I have travelled to Europe and Asia. Prior to that I au paired for my first family for a further two years. Yours sincerely Lunéll
I believe that my life experience, together with my various interests and my positive attitude, will benefit your child to the greatest advantage possible. I have an intuitive and heartfelt understanding of a child's emotional and educational needs and deal especially well with problem areas.
Literature, art (I paint myself), politics, nature, cooking. I have published 7 African Design books. I enjoy satire, comedy and a good movie, especially art films and a wide range of music, but classical music is closest to my heart. You are welcome to view my Facebook page as well.

I took responsibility for the girls from fetching from school until 18h00 every day, i.e. extra murals, feeding, playing, educating, creativity and love and support. These are talented, intelligent and active girls and they were a delight to au pair.

Lunell is an excellent au pair and took great care of my daughters. She is especially good at developing the artistic side of children through a focus on art, singing and reading. She is also experienced in working with the emotional side of children. I strongly recommend her

13, girl
I tutored most of the afternoons, but did school runs and extra murals. Personally I felt that my real function was to build up my student's confidence and self-esteem and to strengthen her social aptitude, but we studied really well together all year. She is a lovely, calm young lady with very good insight and a great sense of humour.
Yes
Lunell is a wonderful human being with great insight and vast experience in dealing with children - teenagers to babies. She is punctual, caring and lots of fun. Lunell is an artist and her artistic creativity comes through in the way in which she deals with children. She shows warmth, empathy and a genuine concern for the well-being of children. We have been blessed to have her share her time with us.
