Helen’s Bio

   Hi, my name is Helen Kiernan and I am seeking new clients for occassionally sitting in Chicago. I am current free some evenings and most weekends. I am a student in an Ophthalmic tech program and currently working with patients as a student. I am CPR and first aid certified.

  I have been working with children since my teens, and have worked with large families, infants and toddlers, and children and adults with special needs in that time. I am willing to do light housework and basic cooking, as well as tutoring and homework help. I don't smoke or drink, and I love animals.

I believe it is important for kids to have a healthy diet, a regular schedule including lots of sleep & lots of time for active play. I am strict about safety, health, & respecting others, but I think it's good to be flexible and easy-going in other ways, like giving kids creative outlets and choices. I use the time-out method and positive re-reinforcements to encourage good behavior, working with the parent's established rules & methods. I do not believe in spanking. I have worked with many families, including kids with emotional issues amd disabilities and I like to engage the kids in a variety of fun, creative, and educational activities.

I have previously worked as a freelance journalist & researcher in my spare time, and done volunteering for organizations that help the homeless. In addition to reading & writing, I also enjoy creating art (ie painting) & music.

I do not own a car; I find using public transit is easier in the city anyway. I am not interested in positions thst require driving at this time.

Feel free to call or message me with any questions.
Resume/References available upon request. Thanks! -Helen
