Hi, there! *I am based in Brentwood, LA Since age 13, I've been happily sitting and caring all kids--infants, special-needs toddlers, rowdy twins, and, yes, unenthused teens. My work at numerous summer camps has given me experience in working with groups and making sure every child is not only accounted for, but ensuring that they are given attention to, in activities such as outdoor exploration, cooking, crafts, and dance. I also tutor elementary/middle schooler, and privately teach beginning Japanese and ballet/creative movement. How do I bring fun into the equation? I love to set the imagination free with "pretend" games, sports, trampoline-ing, face painting, reading, watching movies, yoga, crafting, and more! I go with the flow and play fair. Children can be our greatest teachers, and it is my passion to learn from their brilliant souls, and teach them, too. My experience ensures that I am a reliable, adaptable, intuitive, safe sitter, and that your child will be well-supervised.
