World's Best Nanny/Babysitter/Tutor
I am the mother of 3 beautiful, accomplished daughters, and grandmother of 7 wonderful children. I have been babysitting for family and friends all my life (I am 66) and commercially for about 25 years. I am responsible, honest, dependable, have my own transportation, and a valid Florida driver's license. I currently work as a Tutor for an agency and privately for families in my community. Previously, I worked as a teacher for a Learning Center and a Supplementary Educational Services Tutor, so I have passed even the FBI's most comprehensive background check. I am in good health, have a clean driving record, have no criminal offenses in my background and do not smoke, or use alcohol or drugs. I live in Sanford and can provide excellent references. I am intelligent, not just with common sense, but I am also college educated. I speak, read and write English. I am First Aid and CPR certified, and inoculated against DTAP. English is my primary language. As a Nanny/Babysitter, I will cook for the children and I'm happy to read to and play with them---not just sit and watch TV. I love teaching them and inspiring them, spending time outdoors and engaging them in imaginative play, including dramatic arts, painting, drawing and crafts. I have many years of experience caring for children of all ages. Right now I am available to work EVENINGS AND/OR WEEKENDS, EVEN OVERNIGHT if given advance notice. I will be available for daytime work after May 23, when school lets out. My babysitting rate is $12. 00 per hour, which I feel is reasonable for the level of skill, excellent service and dependable care I provide. For full days as part of a weekly schedule, or an overnight or full weekend, we could negotiate a price. For tutoring, I charge $25 per hour. If you are interested, please contact me and we'll talk. Thank you for your consideration.
