Luana D. - Seeking Work in Jackson Heights

Hourly rate17.14 / hour

Hi, My name is Luana. I have lived in NYC since April this year. I'm student of ESL. I'm looking for a part-time nannying job with American families, because it will be part of my learning the language. I'm Christian, honest, polite, smart and dynamic. I have experience caring for toddlers, young children, and teenagers. I am more than happy to plan a summer tutoring in place and regimen to your liking and also engage children in a wide range of activities (cooking, outdoors, crafts, museum visits, etc.). I think that the summer can be a wonderful time of fun and enrichment for kids and I'd love to help your family! Additionally, I am more than happy to engage in housework while working as a nanny. I do not mind doing laundry, cooking, cleaning, or running errands. Also, I've cared for a lot of different animals and would be open to some pet care, if desired. I look forward to hearing from you! Luana

In my past childcare experience i had work with families that had childrens from 5 to 10 years old . I also had taken care of my nephews and. I have a little more advantage and experience on that I'm also good at helping the kids with homework and feeding them, entertain and have fun by playing. Games ,reading telling stories or taking them to the park more than a nanny I like show that they could trust me like a sister or that I'm part of the family.

I babysat for twin boys age 11. I loved them dearly but both had anger issues and would constantly try to hurt the other. They never hurt me but I soon learned that the parents were abusing them. I had to anonymously notify Social Services and end my job with them. We left on good terms but it broke my heart having to leave the boys. I also babysat and still occasionally baby sit twin boys age 5 and their sister age 4. These children are well behaved and just a blessing to take care of. They are fun and creative and whenever the parents call me last minute because they have a chance to go out, I never hesitate to cancel any of my personal social plans to take care of the children. I've always been very good with children, always volunteering to help out any family or any family event I always will watch and play with the children so the parents can have a good time. I love being around them because they have such unique views on the world and it's always fun to experience a child's world.
