Since I was a teenager I have always volunteer at the church nursery. I have helped out with all ages from infants to older children. when I turned 18 I became an au pair in Essex, England for a fantastic family and really enjoyed the experience of living with them. While in college I became a reading tutor for low income families in the state of South Carolina. I taught children reading techniques and new vocabulary. I also had to communicate in Spanish to their parents their process. Most parents of theses homes didn't speak English and were unable to help their children read. I also worked as an after school nanny for a family. I worked for them for 3 years. I helped with homework, car pulling, teaching him Spanish, helped out with the pets among other responsibilities. I am well educated and well mannered. I know how to live with a family and to contribute. I am helpful, flexible, willing to help in any way. I am also reliable, and committed to my work as a nanny.
