Growing up as the second oldest child, I was the one who took care of three of my younger siblings when they were young. I still have a 6-year-old sister! The experience I had and the skills I acquired during those times make me a perfect fit for this job as a nanny and tutor. Not only did I cook, clean, pick up the children from school, and run errands, I also took time out to study with them and assist them with their homework. It was hard work, but I had fun doing it. I also had a better opportunity to bond with my sisters.
All in all, I have a little over 6 years of experience with working with children, and I am still a tutor with experience in SAT & GRE prep, calculus, chemistry, and high school courses. The students I've worked with so far have showed improvements in their academics.
I've learned to be patient, compassionate, and understanding.
