I have two children, both girls, One is two and the other turns one on the 22nd of June. Both girls will be accompanying, but I don't believe that will be a problem. My availability is Mon-Fri 8-3, but I am willing to negotiate on the hours if you have a different schedule. Sunday is a family day, so I will be unavailable to work every Sunday. I will be available for emergencies, however I do attend Church, so I would have to take the children with me if I was called to work on Sunday. I can tutor in English, Religion and History, I can also cook and clean. I do not have my license, but I hope to have it by this fall.
