Hello! My name is Ana. I'm a former high school teacher with more than 10 years of babysitting experience which includes newborns, toddlers and middle school children. I'm also a certified tutor and can help with homework when necessary. I am fully bilingual. I babysat full-time for a 4-month-old girl until she was a year and a half old. I also babysat a Russian speaking boy part-time from the time he was 3 until he was 5. I prepared meals for him, read to him, etc. My last babysitting job ended the week of July first. I had been babysitting a little boy from the time he was 4 months old until he was ready to enter day care on July first. have three granddaughters now 9 months, 13 and 18 years old. I'm loving and patient and love to engage the children in activities that are both entertaining and educational. I find similarities between teaching and babysitting. It is very rewarding because it allows me to become part of the child's daily learning and discovery.
