Maya’s Bio

Hello, my name is Maya. I graduated from the University of Illinois in Chicago with an BS in Biology. My plans were to apply to medical school, but soon after I graduated I realized I wanted different things from life. So, I worked in Phase 1 Pharmacokinetics as a project management assistant in Miami. I recently moved back to my hometown and am in the process of deciding my next career move--maybe behavioral therapy or physician assistant--which led me back to sitter city.

While I was a full time college student, I worked professionally with a family of twins for two years. However, my experience doesn't end there. I have a six year old sister who is conquering Prader Willi Syndrome gracefully, a brother who is three, five younger cousins (15, 14, 4, 3, 1). I have a lot of patience and understanding when it comes to children. I believe the best way to deal with them is to use reason. I believe I'm a very energetic, fun, and happy person. If you give me an opportunity to work with you, I assure you that you won't regret it.

Side-note: I have a reliable car with no bad driving record. I have all my necessary shots. Homework will definitely not be a problem as I have tutored several times in the past.
