I've been working with children since I was 16 years old, starting out as an Assistant Instructor at my dojo. Over the past 8 years I have been working with children in various capacities and steadily growing my experience. I have had extensive experience as a nanny, caregiver, dog and cat sitter and reading and writing tutor. I have had experience with infants and toddlers, but the age group I have spent the most time with is 6-12. I especially excel with boys who love to be active! I am a very active and athletic person and love to play sports, games and run around with the kids! I also have significant experience with special needs children which I gained while helping my mother teach a special needs classroom when I was in high school. I also have a lot of experience helping kids with ADHD. This is something I struggled with myself when I was younger so I have my own personal experience to draw from. My most recent care job was nannying for a 10 year old boy who lived in Manhattan, picking him up from school, taking him around Manhattan, cooking and cleaning and caring for their puppy.
