My Ayi, Yang Xian, has worked with my family for 2.5 years, since September 2015. We are soon repatriating (to Australia) and she will be looking for work as of February 2018. My family has loved having Ayi work for us in that time and I highly recommend her to any other family looking for such assistance.
Ayi has long experience working for expat families (previously worked for French and American families), and we’ve been really happy with her. She has worked long days for my family, helping with kids and taking care of the house. She drops off and picks up my little one at a nearby school, and meets his brother off the school bus. In between she does household chores and manages other things at home such as deliveries and repair jobs. She’s also an excellent cook and can do both western and Chinese food.
While she doesn’t ‘speak’ English she certainly knows and understands a few words and is familiar with ‘western families’. My kids took to her quite quickly and they all have no problem understanding each other even though none of them really speak each other’s language.
She has been supremely reliable and has been available to work extra hours as required. We have been living in the Gubei Area but Ayi could work in other areas in Puxi as she has her own scooter for travel.
