I have recently completed my first year of graduate studies in School Psychology and my undergrad is in Communication and Humanities. I have served as a Speech Coach at San Jose State University and a Writing Tutor. I can also tutor for grades K- 12 in reading writing and math. I have worked with diverse students with varying needs. Teaching is my passion and helping students succeed brings me great joy! My previous employers would describe me as kind, genuine, gentle, generous, patient and compassionate. Looking forward to working with you!

Friendly And Fun Babysitter.
Hello! I am 20 years old, I grew up with 5 siblings with me being the oldest. I would say my siblings gave me most of my experience that I have now. I later on took up babysitting jobs on the side throughout high school to earn money. I'm good with kids from infants to 14-year-olds, I am patient and hardworking, creative, and reliable. I was on my 2nd year of college majoring in Child Development, but I am taking a year off to earn some money to help pay for school.
