Patty K. - Seeking Work in Marion

17.14 / hour

I am a highly qualified and certified childcare provider. For the last three years, I worked as a lifeguard and swim instructor, where I taught children of all ages. I even facilitated a lunchtime music class at the center to expose the kids to age-appropriate, exciting songs. I was a babysitter throughout my time in the city, caring for children with special learning and psychological needs, kids who spoke English as a second language, and even a set of very rambunctious twins! I am a great tutor and I love to provide homework help as part of my babysitting routine if it is needed. I worked as a camp counselor at a ranch in the Texas hill country for 4 years, which has given me so many great tools to relate to children in fun, appropriate ways by engaging them in games and activities. Additionally, I am a certified Lifeguard/Professional Rescuer with special certifications in the use of AED/rescue equipment and wilderness rescue and first aid. I have been a disaster relief volunteer with the Red Cross of Greater New York for 6 years, and I have been trained in risk assessment and management. During my senior year of college, I worked as a classroom assistant. I am trained in test prep, classroom management, and literacy coaching with goals of improving comprehension and retention through the use of repetition, mnemonics, and educational games.
