Johanna S. - Seeking Work in Crystal Lake

20.00 / hour

Growing up with two sisters, I have a great deal of experience with homework help, mediating quarrels, and giving patient, loving care. I truly enjoy working and playing with kids, yet I know that it is not always fun and games. I have experience volunteering at church in many capacities with children, including supervising the nursery, teaching Sunday school, leading Vacation Bible School for preschool and grade school, and mentoring a small group of sixth grade girls. I have also tutored elementary, middle, and high school students in Spanish, which I speak fluently. Currently I am an au pair for a family with three young children in Spain. I also spent some time doing mission work in Mexico at children's homes and orphanages. Outdoor activities, bedtime stories, and healthy snacks are my specialties. I am passionate about music, and am willing to teach piano lessons or simply sing and dance with your children. If you're looking for a responsible, flexible, and fun caregiver, please contact me!
