New jobs posted by families:
My daughter is completing Senior Supplemental to replace grades in Algebra 2 second semester and Geometry. Since this is largely units completed on her own and tested at school she needs someone to go through the lesson and teach/explain. I anticipate 1-2 hours weekly.
I will pretty much just need someone to watch my 2-year-old during the morning and early afternoon hours. It would just be for appointments and errands and workout classes that I have. Maybe an occasional date night. Additional needs include being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker. Looking for a caregiver for my 2-year-old daughter, 7-year-old son, and 10-year-old daughter. Flexible start date. My schedule may vary.
