Maritza L. - Seeking Work in Forest Hills

10.60 / hour

I am Maritza from Forest Hills. At the present time I am working with an 83 year old lady on a part time basis since 2012. Previous to this, I worked for a lady from Italy taking care of her 8 month old baby girl. The family won't be needing my services any longer since she has a relative from Italy to take care of the little girl to learn the Italian language. Previous to this employment, I worked as a transportation/sitter for two boys 9 and 11 year old boys commuting from Long Island City to Jamaica Estates. My dates of employment for this position were November, 2014 until June, 2015. The family bought a new house far away and my services were no longer needed. At the present time I am looking for a part/full time position as a care taker/babysitter/nanny position within the Queens area. I can provide you with excellent references and my resume. I am respectful, considerate, very clean, organized, cheerful, and most of all I love working with the elderly/children. My background previous to being a care taker/nanny was within the Social Service field for many years, as a Bilingual Case Worker. I worked with various types of families and their children solving difficult situations such as health care, diassabilities, life learning skills,immigration issues, and served as an Interpreter/Translator (Spanish/English). I can be reached at xx. It is best to reach me by cell phone since I am not always on my computer. Looking forward to hearing from you and perhaps we can both find the right fit to the present situation. I thank you kindly for your time. Respectfully, Maritza

Over the years I have regularly baby sat for families in my neighborhood. I have experience with children from the ages of 9 months to 10 years old. For two years I was a water safety instructor, and I taught children from the ages of 2 years to 8 to swim in various levels. I was also a lifeguard for three summers and was certified in CPR. While I am not currently up to date with my certification, I am still able to perform first aid and CPR. I just finished a year of volunteering as a teacher's assistant in an elementary school in Israel. I absolutely love children and have about as much fun with them as they do with me which in my experience has been a lot on both sides.
