Experienced Babysitter - College Student Available For The Summer
I volunteered at the Boys and Girls' Club for four years and worked one-on-one with kids to help them with their reading skills. I also worked as a basic skills assistant for the youth group lessons, assisting kids, ages 3 - 15. Last summer, I was a camp counselor and worked the youth figure skating and gymnastics camps. I am currently a volunteer in a program through which I mentor and tutor a 7-year-old girl every week. From these programs, I attained several paid babysitting opportunities. I have worked with kids as young as one to as old as 13 years old. With one family who I have babysat for, for about 3 years now. I have driven the kids home from activities (I have a car), cooked them dinner, played games with them, helped them with their homework, and helped them take baths and get ready for bed. In general, I really enjoy working with kids and will not only watch over the kids when needed, but also will put in the effort to interact, play, and bond with them. I am looking for a babysitting opportunity for the summer (specifically weekdays but I can be available sometimes on the weekends) in the afternoons / evenings.
