Looking for German native speaker: We are a family who recently moved to Bethesda, Maryland. Since we spent five years in Vienna, Austria, our two kids (9 and 13 years old) speak German fluently. Therefore we are looking for a German native speaker to talk to them a couple of hours a day. In exchange we offer accommodation in an independent 'in-law suite ' (a fully furnished independent apartment, utilities included). If you are interested please contact Pablo Sanz: 929 389 8696.

Nanny Wanted in Arlington (near McLean) - Monday to Friday 9 am to 5 pm - We are looking for a Nanny for our 1 year old son. Both my wife and I are currently working from home and would love to have the support of a Nanny during the week. Our son is a great little boy who loves to laugh, read and play. Duties would include playing and supervising him, serving him lunch/snacks, bringing him to bed for his naps and some light housekeeping (dishes and his laundry). While we prefer a nanny with German language skills it is not necessary. If this opportunity sounds interesting to you, please reach out to Max and Hillary Hamm at We hope to hear from you soon :)
