Lena M. - Seeking Work in Farmington Hills

11.42 / hour

I'm 25, married, own a condo, I have my bachelor's in Psychology and Sociology. I've taken several child development classes, and have a good background in special needs as well. I have been a tutor for 2 years now. My little is 9 years old, and I make sure she learns every day she spends with me. I have been a full-time nanny for three years, and have several years of baby-sitting experience. My whole life has revolved around children, whether its learning about them in college, or working with them. I''m organized, clean, and am a good listener. I like to be on time, and like it when the family I work with is communicative. Usually when working with new families I like to get to know what the parents do normally with their children. I follow the family rules to a T. If they have a certain style of praising/punishing I like to be respectful and do the same. In general I am a no no-nonsense kind of person. If the parents are strict and expect that from me, then that is what I will do. If the parents want a more relaxed atmosphere for their children, then I can do that as well. I'm big on manners, and constantly teaching children new facts about the world we live in. It's unbelievable how much you can teach someone just by talking about normal everyday things.

After I graduate in May, I will have a free summer before I start graduate school in the fall. I currently have student teaching experience a preschool (K1 and K2) classroom as well as in grades 1-4. My experiences have been in an urban school, a catholic private school, a suburban public school, and an international school. I also have 2 years of experience as a camp counselor at a Montessori school. Last summer I was a nanny in Bloomfield Hills for two elementary school aged boys. A few years ago, I was a summer nanny for a family of three all under age 6. During the school year, I babysit families with children of all ages and have experience and pedagogical training in working with children with disabilities.

Hello! My name is Jessica xx. I am 20 years old from Farmington Hills, MI. I attended Eastern Michigan University for 3 years, but am taking time off, as I was unsure about my major. I have had plenty of experience with children for about 7 years now. I first started out working with children that had special needs at a facility called "The Friendship Circle". I taught them how to perform and improve basic life and social skills, and most importantly I was caring, loving friend that they could rely on and look up to. I have tutored a couple of Japanese children as well, helping them learn English as a second language. I have also babysat (and looked after pets) for many different families over the years. I like to involve the children I babysit in multiple (safe yet fun) activities such as board games, crafts, sports, singing and dancing, etc... I really like to encourage kids to play outside rather than being on technology most of the time. My rate is $10-$20 an hour. Contact me if you're interested! Thank you:)
