Hello, my name is Ana, 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 assist with homework when necessary. I'm fully bilingual in Spanish and have studied French and Italian in college. I babysat full time for a 4-month-old girl until she was a year and a half old. I also baby sat a Russian speaking boy part time from the time he was 3 until 5. I prepared meals for him, read stories and engaged in playful activities. 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 21 months old and ready to enter day care. I'm loving and patient and love to engage the children in entertaining and educational activities. 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 experience.
