I grew up in a home that also doubled as my mother's child care center for 16 years. Throughout those 16 years, I developed relationships with kids that I will remember forever. It began as coming home from school and interacting with them; then as I got older, I began my job as a "mother's helper." I've always loved children and helping them to grow and learn new things. I've enjoyed babysitting for the past few years, but now I'm looking for a full/part time nanny position. The children I've watched have enjoyed things like making an Earth Day t-shirt, creating a calender with finger paints, coloring coffee mugs for Father's Day, and making their own puzzles. I love not just babysitting, but really interacting with the kids and making their day as enjoyable as possible. I love spending time outside and would be excited to take day trips. I've visited zoos and many parks; trips to local libraries and spending time reading with children has always been fun to me. I'm open to new ideas for things to do to keep your children entertained! I'm a college student with reliable transportation and flexible hours. I've worked with children of all ages and personality types. It's something I've always loved doing! I'm also available for tutoring. I tutored through a program during high school and would like to continue helping younger kids. I'm available for any elementary school subject as well as middle/high school math, English, history and most sciences.
