Overview

Becoming an Au Pair/Tutor in Italy is an affordable international educational experience that will enhance your resume through practical experience. And when you return home, imagine the kind of job you can get when you list this experience.

How is this program different from a regular au pair program?  Au Pairs take care of the children during scheduled hours.  They help the children with their homework and assist in keeping children’s rooms and play areas clean. They prepare snacks and meals for the children and drop them off or pick them up from school or activities.  Au Pair / Tutor participants take care of children and at the same time tutor them in conversational English for 20 hours/week.
