Hi! My name is Mayalyn and I am known for being very passionately engaged with the children I care for, reliable and punctual, and very flexible in scheduling.
HOW DID I GET STARTED ? I first realized that my approach to babysitting was unique since I naturally love to teach and always maximize child development from classes I've taken on the subject. This stems from being home schooled and in private schools leading all the way up to UCLA where I obtained my BA. My family also hosted foster care for ages 0-4 and I learned how to communicate in nurturing ways, while teaching. I do this in a loving and subtle way where the children don't even notice that they are learning, they think they are simply living and having fun. So I began helping younger kids with Foreign Language, Spelling, Reading and Writing, and the older ones with homework. I fuse all of these attributes together when I am babysitting to make the kids super excited for me to come around! I also prepare healthy meals, care for family pets, and keep things very organized and tidy around the home.
I'm a sitter who makes the experiences with me fun but also always a learning opportunity since I started off as a tutor. My tutoring includes homework help and fun science experiments, guaranteeing grade improvement, and teaching skills your student will need for the rest of their life. I even create vision boards and goals, its important to start at a young age, but the key ingredient is fun, fun, fun! And I love to teach Spanish and observe children catch on so quickly to the language! I hope this was helpful in sharing a bit about me and I can't wait to meet you and your family soon!
