I was my neighborhood's babysitter from age 11 and proceeded to add tutoring services to various families in the district as my high school career showed an affinity for teaching and homework help (I qualified for the gifted and talented program with an IQ of 157). As a teenage babysitter, I engaged the children in my care with board games and outdoor activities to stimulate their minds while letting them just be children. When I went to the University of Buffalo on a scholarship, I became a nanny for 3 years to a family of 3 (ages, 3 [boy],5 [boy] and 7 [girl]). I dropped off and picked up the younger two from their nursery school, made them lunch before picking up their sister from . She would get a light snack and dinner would get started. During my off-hours with this family, I tutored high school age students for their Regents exams and various studies. Except for housework and heavy cooking, there was not a request I could not perform as a nanny.

Last summer I was a full time nanny for two girls (6 and 9). I was with them Mondays-Fridays 7am-6pm and it was a great experience! I formed great relationships with the girls and am eager to find another family I can help this upcoming summer! I also babysat for a family in my neighborhood all throughout high school and are still very close to the family today!

While in college, I volunteered at a xx where I worked with elementary aged children. I also volunteered at a local day care center where I worked with younger children, ages 4-8.
