About Me

I am currently a student at the Stern School of Business at New York University studying Marketing. I have a deep love for childcare and tutoring, a profession that I did throughout high school. I truly enjoy teaching kids of all ages and making every day a learning experience! I am the middle child of three girls and grew up as one of the oldest of 16 cousins, so I’ve been watching over children of a variety ages since I was very young and am very comfortable with tea-parties, dress up, and great imaginary adventures. I have a very fun, high-energy, and outgoing personality but safety is always my first priority.

I am completely fluent in Spanish and am always glad to teach a little Spanish to whoever is willing to learn. I also know conversational French, having taken it in school for four years and considered a minor in it. I have participated in many theatrical productions and been singing since I was ten, so I am always willing to help any aspiring entertainers put on shows (even if the stage is a bed and the audience stuffed animals). I love playing sports and being outdoors as well as making tons of arts and crafts. I love interacting with kids of all ages and getting to know their amazing and unique personalities and love forming strong bonds with the kids I work with!

I have professional childcare experience with…

Toddlers, Pre-school aged children, Elementary school aged children, Middle school aged children

I will be SmartSitting while…

Activities & skills I love to teach & share with children…

I love going to parks and playgrounds with kids and I also love to make arts and crafts with them. I think that there are great lessons that kids can learn from doing arts and crafts, such as paying attention to detail, that patience and hard work can go a long way, and that everyone is different and can create amazing things that reflect their personality!
