Hi! I'm Tara, a friendly, reliable junior at Hofstra University and also work part time for a valet company. I began babysitting around age 14 and have predominately worked with school aged children, but am also comfortable caring for toddlers. I'm a very patient, caring sitter and have additional experience babysitting children with emotional challenges. While I love playing outside with kids (weather permitting) or breaking out the board games, I also am comfortable and confident helping kids with their homework and taking them to various lessons (i. e tennis, piano). In my free time, I enjoy hiking, reading, and seeing live music. My main goal is to provide a safe and fun environment for kids to learn & grow in. I'm available all weekend(s), any day after 6pm, and usually one entire weekday depending on my schedule.
