I have had childcare experience with children ages 5 to 14 for the past 6 years, additionally being a rhythmic gymnastics instructor at a community youth center. Both as a babysitter and gymnastics instructor, I am well aware of the importance of the child's safety, something I always put in top priority. I am CPR certified, and will always pay close attention to what your child is doing! Whether it is a 5-year-old or 12-year-old, I can get along with any child, and love to see them learn and have fun. As a babysitter, I will engage in games and activities, making sure they are doing something fun and productive! I can provide my own transportation, and do any pickups/drop-offs that are needed for your child. I will prepare snack and meals and will make sure your child goes to bed on time. I am looking to save up some money before transferring to UCSB in late September, and thought it would be a fun summer job to babysit and be around kids which I love! I am also coaching in the evenings, so morning and afternoon jobs would be ideal! I was born in Russia and moved to the US when I was 2 years old, and can speak fluent Russian. I have 3 siblings, as well as a dog and cat, so I am very comfortable with pets. I love children, and am looking for a summer job!
