I have experience with children with autism, ADD/ADHD, mild to moderate behavioral issues, speech delays, food allergies, and more. Since 2003, I have also been a self-employed academic tutor for children in elementary and junior high school. I have been babysitting since I was 13 years old and have enjoyed working with children my entire life and really can't picture myself doing anything else!

I do not have any technical nanny experience but I do have a lot of child care experience. I've done quite a bit of babysitting but there is one family in particular that I have been with consistently and take a high interest in. For 5 years I have been caring for a wonderful set of twins, a boy and a girl. I have been with them from the age of eight and still continue to watch them now that they are twelve years old. I would like to think that even though I do not have much experience, I excel in the little I do. I feel I teach these kids a great deal. With me they learn independency, creativeness, culture, how to entertain themselves without being glued to a TV or video game, and much more. I keep them active with homework, cooking, hiking etc. We go to interesting places and learn new thing all the time. We discuss music, life, and what it means to be an active citizen and play your part. I would really like to think I am making a difference in their path to adulthood. I would love to do them same with your children.
