Karen’s Bio

I graduated from UCLA with a science degree but my ultimate passion is teaching and being with children. After years of working in the healthcare/biotech industry, I realize that the happiest time of my life was when I was working as a Day Camp Leader at the YMCA. Despite the long hours, I had a blast being with kids all day. I'm looking for a way back into spending time with kids again as I'd ultimately like to open a day care someday.

I have experience as:
- a mother's helper to newborn triplets
- a day camp leader at the YMCA for kids ages 5-12.
- babysitting for toddlers to pre-teens.
I studied piano for 12 years and I played varsity high school tennis for 6 years. I can teach your kids these activities if they wish to learn. I love being outdoors and hanging by the beach! I am also available as a tutor for academic subjects.
I do prefer to meet the parents and children beforehand to see if we are a good fit for each other. I will not take offense if we meet and you decide to go with another sitter. It's important to me that everyone feels comfortable.

I had Karen helped me out with my genetics class. She is very knowledgeable, prompt, and reliable. She is easy to get along with, would go the extra mile for you, and knows what he's doing. I would highly reccomend her for any biology course tutoring.
