Hello, I'm a individual, dedicated and responsible caregiver and Household. My ethnicity Hispanic/Latin. I speak Spanish & my second languages English. I love being a caregiver because I'm truly making a difference in the lives of Family. Because every day is different experiences. While we do have routines, I like flexibility to be able to go out on a new adventure every day. Learning and exploring the world through the eyes of a child are truly the best, and no two days of growing are the same. Clean driving record and criminal background check. I'm fully COVID-VACCINATED and influenza vaccine, immunization record, a good reference and First Aid/CPR EAD. My skills in childcare provision, along with my positive attitude and friendly nature, position me to excel in this role. I'm eager to accept a new opportunity and make a positive difference in your children's lives. The chance to offer more insight into my qualifications would be most welcome!

Sandra is a loving, energetic and strong hard worker mature lady, who's always punctual with an extremely good attitude, patience, care for children, problem-solving, creative, cooperative, flexible, responsible, trustworthy, reliable, honest, respectful, polite, good humored, and dedicated hard worker. We hired Sandra for the position full time Nanny Share since August 2020 ended April 2021. We terminated our employment contract Nanny Share for 2 toddle girls. We were so lucky to find and hired Sandra during the COVID-19 pandemic, she helped make sure the girls stayed safe, herself, others and social distancing and followed COVID-19 guidelines CDC. We are appreciated a lot and stayed safe with us. She helped parents work from home and provided good childcare and household to our toddler girls who are 2 years old. She is very clean and healthy. We are congratulated for fighting the pandemic and she got COVID-19 VACCINE!

Fun Sitter And Smile Creator

I have experience in taking care of children. I was a teacher's assistant in a Montessori Daycare. I am certified in several courses, CPR, AED & Fist Aid and others. I have good references as an assistant professor and babysitter. I have my own transport. I take good care of my health and I am careful with Covid19. For the past few years I have worked voluntarily with babies and young children in my country. I love children of all ages and I am available to take care of your child with love. I am currently learning English, and I speak Portuguese and understand Spanish. I think the most important thing for me is who knows how to take care of children safely and lovingly. The language is a matter of time, as I only have some months I live here. 1 - I am looking for a long term or short term job. 2 - I am interested in full-time or part-time work. Thank you so much for your time.

You know right when you meet Julieta that she is a special person who has a special way with children. Julieta cared for our two young children (2.5 yrs and 5 mos) for almost two months with total respect and so much wonderful energy. I loved how she truly listened to our children and met them on their level, and engaged both children in fun activities throughout the day. She knows how to create routines that children can thrive in and learn independence. My husband and I noticed a difference in our toddler within weeks - he has significant speech delays, so you can imagine our surprise when we realized she taught him how to count to twenty and say his ABCs! Beyond that, Julieta is super professional - 100% punctual, trustworthy, proactive, and completely reliable. English is not her first language, but we found good ways to communicate and it was never an issue. Any family would be SO lucky to have her in their lives. We miss her already!

Tutoring To Childcare, Happy To Help :)

Hi! I'm an avid swimmer and cook who recently graduated from Tufts University with a double major in Biology/Archeology and a focus in pre-med studies. I now work as a medical assistant in an Orthopedics office taking care of patients with varying muscle and bone injuries. I LOVE my job and I owe so much of it to the amazing teachers and mentors I've had growing up. I wanted to help others find their passion so I started tutoring some of my neighbors' kids during the beginning of the pandemic. I really enjoyed watching the kids succeed with their online classes and saw the benefit of one-on-one attention to help them stay organized and give them the opportunity to ask questions not in front of their entire online class. Plus, their parents appreciated the (well deserved) break! I have a car and am happy to help drop kids off at appointments/ activities or just look after them for a few hours if you need. Message me if you have any questions! :)

Haley was a true blessing for us last spring! During the start of the pandemic, my husband and I were both working from home and I'm honestly not sure how we would have managed the quarantine without her. She helped our two children, son in 7th grade and daughter in 10th with their online classes. She also managed to find amazing virtual activities to keep them engaged like a fashion design class for our daughter and a photography class for our son. She kept them both excited about learning even though it was all over zoom. I think they both really benefited from the one on one attention she was able to give them. She even helped our son with his end of term English project he had been complaining about since the beginning of the year when thy assigned it! They both still text or call her when they need help on an assignment and she always gets back to them quickly. She has been the best influence on both our children and we have missed her this fall since she moved back to Boston.
