I am currently a graduate student working on my Master's in Counseling Psychology at Santa Clara University. I have been working as a nanny/tutor for eight years now. As a nanny, I've worked for a few different families and have cared for up to three children at one time, ranging in ages from infants to teenagers. My responsibilities have included after-school pick-up, homework assistance, light household work, providing entertainment for the children when they're finished with their homework/chores, meal prep, bathing/bed time, etc. I've also taken them to after-school activities and appointments. I'm currently working for a school district and have served them in a number of different capacities for the past eight years. I've spent time as their homework center tutor and helped out where I was needed. I also work with a 8-year-old little girl with moderate to severe autism at the moment, and have been caring for her since August of 2011. In addition, I have been the nanny for twin 7-year-old boys since August of 2012. With summer coming up, I'm looking to pick up some more hours that will work around my summer class schedule.
I have a 4-year-old niece and a 2-year-old niece that I love helping care for, with a little nephew on the way. I've worked with at risk youth and special needs so I have experience with all ages and children who need a little more individualized attention.
