Natalie W. - Seeking Work in Prospect

8.57 / hour

I've grown up in a big family, always helping out and caring for my younger cousins. This alone taught me a lot about responsibility and child care. Beyond that I've babysat for several families, sometimes up to six or seven kids at once, for date nights. This past summer specifically, I nannied part-time for two young girls, ages 7 and 10. My responsibilities included driving them to swim practice, preparing lunch, working with them on school work and overall keeping them entertained and being responsible for them while their parents were at work. On the occasional weekend night, I would watch the two children and their friends for about 8 hours usually until about 1 a.m. when the parents returned. On these nights, I was responsible for cooking dinner and getting everyone to bed. I also have a 3-year-old nephew whom I absolutely adore and have been helping to care for since he was a newborn. Having a little one around all the time has shown me how much work kids can be but also how much love they can bring to a home! Additionally, I've had years of experience tutoring kids and peers, ages 6- 20 and providing volleyball private lessons ages (7-15).
