    The Ideal Sitter for this Job

    The family is looking for someone very trustworthy who has a lot of energy and experience with kids this age. They are looking for someone who can bring their experience as well as to easily assimilate into the families' culture and structure. The kids are both great and they have always had glowing reports from school etc, but they find, particularly after school, that when they are tired or hungry they get cranky and whiny and mom and dad need someone who can navigate tantrums, moods, sibling fights, etc. in a firm but loving way. They are also looking for someone who is a good communicator and can easily navigate subway and NYC streets without getting flustered. The person needs to be able to keep up with minimal but consistent text message communication. Spanish language would be a plus since both kids will be taking Spanish in school this year and neither of the parents speak it, however this is not essential. ***If you have early learning or literacy tutoring in your background, the family can offer 2 hours/week of tutoring for $100-150/hour.***

An open and flexible approach is best as they learn the flow of the family.
