Post subject:  Ankara Family Seeks Live-In Native English Speaker

Family of 4 (highschool and college-aged children) seeks a responsible and friendly native English-speaking WOMAN to live with them during the academic year (September-May) to help them with their English. No cleaning or child-care - just English. A teaching certificate is not necessary, but you must be a female Native Speaker preferably between the ages of 30-50. Room and board included as well as a stipend and airfare (depending on length of stay). The house is nice and new and in a very safe suburb of Ankara.

Contact Neslihan for more information:

*I am posting this for Neslihan (I am her current tutor) and can answer simple questions about the job, but all negotiations must be made through her.
