Tutor, Nanny/Child Care Provider
Hi! My name is Lonnie and I am a tutor and nanny/childcare provider. I have a lot of experience working with children. When I was in high school and college, my mother ran a home day care. After school and during breaks, I would assist her with the children. During the day, she had 5 to 8 infants and toddlers, ranging in age from months old to 3 years old. In the afternoons, we watched older kids, ages 6 to 12, when they got out of school. My role was to provide snacks, help with homework, and play games with/read to the younger children. I also took a year off from school to serve as a student missionary, teaching kindergarten and preschool in the Marshall Islands. I taught 50 children, ages 4 to 7, all subjects. About 95% of my students did not speak English, when I started teaching them. I had to get creative in my means of communication. Routine was a huge part of my teaching structure.
