LOOKING FOR A FRENCH SPEAKING AFTERNOON SITTER.  We are looking for a French speaking babysitter for our 6 year old son who attends a French immersion school. We are a non French speaking family and feel that one way to support our son is to surround him with French both at school and at home.  We will need you regularly in the fall, once school starts.  We would need you 4 to 5 days a week, typically from 3pm to 6pm. Duties include picking him up from school, driving him to soccer/baseball practice, feeding him a snack, helping with his homework (10 minutes) and of course, speaking to him in French!   We have an extra car for you to use if you do not have one.  We would like to hire you occasionally during the summer as well. We want to make sure he does not forget his French, but the schedule is flexible. Pay range is $15-$20/hour depending on your experience.  We have a spare bedroom and bathroom so we could consider a live in arrangement. Since we will only need help from 3pm to 6pm, this could work for a student or if you would like to work more hours with another family in the mornings.  We are looking for someone who is honest, trustworthy, responsible, mature, and fun-loving.  We want you to engage our son and play with him, get him up and running, and excitedly speaking in French.  If this sounds interesting, please give me a call at 415 690 3725 or write to
