Meet Tamaka

I'm new to Milwaukee but I'm originally from Chicago, IL where I've been in the Nanny & Sitter field for over 14 years. I have worked in Chicago and many of the surrounding suburbs as well. I have immediate availability, a background check and great flexibility. I've met a lot of families with needs for one time care, short notices and backup sitter needs. I've done ad hoc sitting and been a nanny for over 20 families with three families being full-time, long-term nanny commitments. My last full-time position of 1 year ended in January of 2012, where I was a full-time... more
I'm new to Milwaukee but I'm originally from Chicago, IL where I've been in the Nanny & Sitter field for over 14 years. I have worked in Chicago and many of the surrounding suburbs as well. I have immediate availability, a background check and great flexibility. I've met a lot of families with needs for one time care, short notices and backup sitter needs. I've done ad hoc sitting and been a nanny for over 20 families with three families being full-time, long-term nanny commitments. My last full-time position of 1 year ended in January of 2012, where I was a full-time nanny for a mother with two small children whose ages are 5 and 3 years old. Before that position, I was with a family for 7 1/2 years where I was a live-in for a period of two years and also participated in a nanny share with another family that included a total of six kids at once ranging from newborn through eight years. I've provided the following duties to any family I'm caring for regardless if it's just babysitting or nanny: light housekeeping, preparing home cooked meals, children's laundry and sometimes the parent's too. I've been a nanny for a Northbrook couple with four kids and three dogs. The first time was for a week from November 1st, 2010 until the 7th while they were on vacation and there was another week from Nov. 18th, 2010 through the 23rd in addition to the other times. I'm a very nurturing, reliable and compassionate nanny that communicates well with a great outgoing personality who has lots of fun energy to share. I was involved with two families for three weeks for a temporary nanny share that lasted from March 1st, 2010 through the 12th and again April 5th, 2010 through April 9th, 2010. I'm someone who truly enjoys and adores children of all ages with a passion, and I always try my best to go the extra mile to provide the best care to the family I'm caring for. I also have extensive experience with newborns, infants, toddlers and children with behavioral disabilities such as ADD & ADHD as well. My newborn, infant and toddler paid experience includes: scheduled feedings through out the day, bathing, scheduled nap-time, tummy time, potty training, story time, listening to lullabies for comfort, getting down on the floor for playtime and going on outings when weather permits and anything else asked of me. So if you're seeking someone who's really passionate about becoming an important part of yours and your children's lives, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Nikia D. says:
I would really like to give her a good review because she was very patient with my son and he seemed to like her. We employed her for a long term open ended contract and for the six weeks that she was employed with us she did not work 5 days in a row. There was always something that prevented her from coming in and it was almost always on a Monday. My husband and I were having to negotiate days off between us... More

Tamaka K. responds:
I totally don't agree with this review for numerous reasons. I actually did a huge favor for this young lady because they were only offering $225-$250 a week for full-time care for her son which is $300-$400 less than what I'm normally paid for full-time care which is what I told her from the very beginning but I do have a good heart & try to help people in general if I'm able. I sympathized with her financial... More
Lei Lani M. says:
Had an interview. Eventually set something up weekly but unreliable (e.g., expected her to come over the day I needed her to find out she wasn't planning on coming anyway- I placed the phone call). Then decided to back out of the commitment over text. Fine though because I needed someone who is more professional and would communicate better. It's cut and dry. Saw the other neg review and took a chance. It... More

Tamaka K. responds:
Not A Good Communicator

I'm sorry you feel that way Lei Lani, but that's totally not true or the case for that matter because we never had a concrete agreement in regards to the day & the couple of hours you were seeking care for. You did ask if I'd be available on that certain day & I said yes, but once again we didn't actually agree to having me coming for that day & you didn't specify if it was a one time...

Maureen B. says:
Tamaka is a lovely, impressive and very reliable woman. In our communication, she was direct, kind and professional. Her experience is beyond impressive and if our immediate needs aligned better, we would be honored to have her care for our child.

Tamaka K. responds:
Very Communicative & Kind, Thanks Maureen for the positive review I really appreciate it, & it was such a pleasure chatting with you & I wish you & yours all the very best !!
Betsy F. says:
I scheduled an interview with Tamaka to come to my home and she never showed up. I did not even receive an email or phone call.
Posted: 08:18 AM, Jul 06, 2010 | Relationship: Tamaka messaged with Betsy
Tamaka K. responds:
I did actually send a message to this person's phone to reschedule the interview but whether or not it was a cell or home phone I'm not sure because it was never clarified with me. What Betsy should've done was check her messages & contact me to see if there was a problem & she would've known that I got sick. But I'm not upset about the review I just think she should've waited until she spoke with me & then... More
