Experienced Tutor And Teacher Available In The Summer
Hello! My name is Jeanette. I went to ISU and am currently an academic interventionist for Des Moines Public Schools! I work with kiddos from kindergarten-5th. I am Orton Gillingham certified. OG is a multi-sensory approach to teaching phonics that was created for individuals with dyslexia, but is an amazing approach to teaching foundation skills in literacy to ALL kiddos. Aside from my passion for teaching- I like to play volleyball, paint, cook, watch Disney movies, and spend time outdoors. I love arts and crafts! My home is full of art and crafts I've done with friends. I m very outgoing, laid back, kind-hearted, but down to Earth. I love being silly with kiddos and building strong relationships that extend beyond the school hours. Throughout high school I mentored younger students. I also spent a lot of my time tutoring elementary aged kids while in college. I am interested in tutoring. However, I am also available to babysit, pet sit, clean, cook, and run errands.

Hello, I am a pastor's wife with 30 years experience of both paid and volunteer senior care (both in home care and within care facilities). I have my certification for both CMA1 and CPR (updated 2018), and have completed recent in-home care training through my previous employer. References are available upon request. I just moved back home to IA and am excited to take on a new client and help you provide your loved one with the quality care they deserve. Looking forward to hearing from you! Deanna

Our family is looking for someone to help us two days a week. Tuesdays and Wednesdays 8-5 (can be flexible with the two days if needed? Wednesday's and Fridays? Tuesday and Friday?). We have one toddler and two school aged kids. I have an event planning/design company and a flower shop, my husband is a construction project manager. Our girls play hockey and we have a ice skating rink in the front yard! We are flexible, creative, and work a lot (if I had to sum us up! Ha) It's really important to us that the person who fills this job should be safe, responsible, and on time. Finding the right fit could mean more of a full time position as both Grandmas will fill the opposite days but not long term. Happy to negotiate pay.
