I recently worked with an Australian family as a baby-sitter/nanny for two years (2014-2016). My responsibilities included after-school pick-up, taking kids to activities, setting up playdates, preparing snacks, monitoring homework and music practice, asking the kids to tidy up their rooms and bathe, and light tidying up around the house as I saw fit (e.g. running and unloading dishwasher, folding laundry, and organizing). When the children were done with their responsibilities we would hang out together and talk, bake/prep dinner, play games and go out.
I have also worked as an occasional babysitter with children ages 7-13 prior to the above mentioned position that entailed similar responsibilities such as after-school pick-up, activities and appointments, playdates, prepping light meals and snacks, and playing with children.
Additionally, I have worked as a music instructor with children ages 5+ for the past eight years. I commenced elementary tutoring with children ages 6-12 in January of 2015, and have also helped preteens with the high school admissions process.
Other relevant experience with children includes volunteering as a swimming instructor for the xx Camp program in LIC, Queens, NY during senior year of high school and volunteering to teach English to the underprivileged children in Monterrey, Mexico through the International Youth Foundation. Both experiences proved to be very rewarding! This summer, I worked as a camp counselor and music instructor with children ages 3 and up at the xx School in Sunnyside, Queens, NY.
