Part-Time Babysitter with a Ton of Experience
I sat regularly for two families, through high school and college; daytime care and evenings. I was a summer counselor running a group of 6 to 9 years old for 2 weeks sessions, and groups changed every 2 weeks. I also worked as a camp counselor for the 8 week spring sessions. I lived on site with 9-14 year old boys and girls. I am responsible for organizing camp events, rock climbing, nature hikes, ran a soccer clinic, accompanied large groups on chaperoned trips, meals, etc. I've been refereeing youth travel soccer for 7 years. I currently referee in the East Hudson Youth Soccer League and tournaments in NY. I've privately trained players and I've run soccer clinics.
I also have experience with teaching children about media production and recently graduated with a degree in digital media production. I enjoy spending time teaching kids about the creative arts and how to use media to express creativity (SOMETHING THAT THE SCHOOL SYSTEM DOES NOT USUALLY TEACH). With that being said, I am way more than just a babysitter. Your children can learn a lot from me, for example I love showing kids the app vine that takes 7 second videos that you can cut together to tell stories. They tend to love this! Kids seem to have a great time with me because I find a balance between having fun and being professional. I am far from the lazy babysitter who just watches your kids when you're gone doing the bare minimum to entertain them. I want them to have a good time!
