Consider Hosting a Male Au Pair.

Many host families prefer male Au Pairs because they are usually easy going, more flexible and practical and willing to do more of the housework. Kids love male Au Pairs because they are creative with game and activities, love sports and spend time outside, camping, cycling, playing with the kids.

Consider Hendry, 20 year old Au pair from South Africa. Hendry already worked as an Au pair in China, “I have lived in China for a while where I was a tutor to children. I loved every moment.”

“I started working in China as an English teacher four months after I graduated. I
first had to do a TEFL(Teaching English as a Foreign Language) course before I
could teach so I completed it and received an A grading. We used games to teach
the children so they are entertained during the lessons. The children were
between the ages of three and eleven so I also had to keep an eye on them the
whole time during the lessons, breaks and lunch times. I learned a lot about their
culture and traditions and I enjoyed the experience very much.”

When I returned home I took on two part time jobs. In the morning I worked at a
daycare center named Wielie Walie where I worked with babies between the ages
of 3 and 24 months. During this time I had to change diapers, bathe them, feed
them, give them medicine, play games with them and I also had to potty train a
child. In the afternoon I worked at an after care center where I had to supervise
over the children and help them with homework and studying. They were
between the ages of ten and thirteen. hendry

I have a lot of experience working with children from all ages including babes. I was an English teacher in China last year so my English is excellent and I lived in another country before. I’m currently transporting children to school and their after school activities everyday so I’m also a very good driver. I am responsible, hard working, mature, honest, energetic and most importantly very good with children. I enjoy to cook, read, working out, cycling, being outdoors and to travel.
I would love to become a part of your family and be an older brother for your children. I would also like doing various activities with them like playing in the park, going to the library, baking and also to look after them”.

Hendry is looking for a host family in Pennsylvania state, if possibly in or near Philadelphia.

I was super exiting! I am crazy about traveling and Mexico was always one of the places  I always wanted to visit! So I contacted Go Au Pair agency and sent them the DS 2019 form to stamp for my trip.  The agency sent me the form back very quickly and I was ready to travel.  Who knew that I will spend one week in a real paradise?
