Hi,

I'm Mrs Tamara Arnold, from NY, United States of America. I'm writing you on behalf of the entire family (my husband, our 2 children and I). Here is little about us. With us you find a family where unconditional love, peace and understanding reign. Our family do not like to judge a book by the cover or take gossip to determine who will be around. We always try to stay positive and find the best in anyone or any situation including the worst ones. My profile: I work as a sales manager at a walmart while my husband work as a civil engineer. How old? I'm 35years old of age. Why do we need your service? Due to the nature of my job, am not always around. I'll thereby need your service as a nanny for my kids. We are a social and fun to be with family looking for a enthusiastic aupair who adores children to spend their days enjoying their company. I will appreciate your response to know if you are interested.

Hello dear

I am grateful for your positive response. Allow me to explain more
about your assign duty and also about us.
At first, we reside in 131 South Ave, Staten Island, NY 10303, United
States. A nice, quite and calm city. Where we live is just about 25
mins drive from the big city of New York. I am blessed with two lovely
kids namely Ashley (she is 9 years old) and James (he his 7 years old)

What you are assign to do or I say your task as a nanny are as follows.
You'll be working 5 to 6 hours a day. You are required to prepare the
kids for school and take them to and from school. (that is, take them
to school and later go and pick them from school in the afternoon).
Care for and stimulate the children both mentally & physically, to
ensure their intellectual, physical and social development. Look after
their physical well being, encouraging proper use of everything - wash
and bath them, help them on how to dress and undress. You are required
to spend time with the child, running errands, house cleaning and
light cooking is a possibility, but not really a requirement. We
prefer someone who will reinforce our desire to teach our children
responsibilities and do not expect to undertake the children assigned
tasks but instead to find ways to encourage them to complete tasks (I
mean not to spoil the kids by doing everything for them).
On weekends (Saturdays) you'll take them out to new places such as
beach and other recreational places (You are fully free on Sunday).

When we want you to start and how long.
We did not have a specific date or reference to when you can start.
You can start anytime. We would like to have you for not less than two
months. It will be nice if you want to stay longer, even if you want
to stay for more than a year. Your happiness with us during your stay
is more important.

What we plan to offer.
We will be giving you $400 per week (I hope that is enough since we
will cater for your feeding. I mean you don't need to buy food from
outside). You and the kids will be going for shopping once in 5weeks.
We have internet facilities in the house for your use, a private room
with your own bathroom. A private car for you in taking the children
to and from school provided you know how to drive or willing to learn
driving. Getting you a driver's license will not be a problem.

Our interest as a family.
Our interests include the zoo, doing yoga, watching soccer, water
skiing, snow skiing, a walk in the park, play dates with friends,
arts, literature, traveling, shopping, cinema and taking good care of
our children. We love adventure, arts, traveling, soccer, literature,
laughter and our wonderful children. My kids are very active wanting a
partner to bounce and spin with them. I would want you convince me
that you are capable of doing this job to my satisfaction. In a
nutshell, we agree to be responsible for the purchase of your plane
ticket. I will like to know if you have a working permit and a valid
working visa that allow you work legally in Usa? I wait to read back
from you soon

Hello dear

Thanks a lot for your interest yes that is my house. I am so delighted to know of your
quality and willingness to take care of my children. For the faster
and quicker processing of your working permit document and visa you
would have to contact the traveling company that helped my last au
pair from Austria. They will process your traveling document very fast
and durable. You can contact the traveling company's agent at

E-mail : [email protected]
Agent Name: Mrs Brenda Cole (Agent)

Immediately you contact the traveling company's agent, they will
process the document in 15-20 working days and will be dispatched over
to your residential address. They will also book an appointment for
you at the embassy. They will instruct you on how and when to take the
document send to you to the embassy with your passport for your
working visa stamp. I got some questions for you which I think will
help in having better knowledge about you. Please don't hesitate to
answer all the questions below.

What are your academics qualifications?
Do you have certificate to back up your Aupair/Nanny Career?
Do you have any allergy?
Do you have any eating disorder?
Do you have pet(s)?
Can you send some photo?
Do you have any criminal records?
I would like to see, if possible your Curriculum Vitae (CV) or references.

I will really appreciate if you could answer those questions about
yourself. Hope to read from you soon.
