Summary:
I have a passion for helping children  grow and learn. When interacting with children, I seek to support their interests and needs, encourage their creativity, and explore their world. I believe children need nurturing, consistency, and regular opportunnities to explore  things =)
  About me:
I have been a proffesional  nanny/babysitter for over 5 years, a lot of experience with: infants, toddlers, school-age, and twins. I have been babysiting since I was fifteen years old.I really enjoy working with babies/toddlers, because it's their stage of development and I enjoy interacting and teaching them new concepts, it is rewarding because your work is reflected in their day to day activities.
One of my first babysitting jobs was , babysitting on occasional weeekends. The girls are 11  and and 14now, they grew up with me and I treat them like my own little sisters. They are older  now so I hardly get to see them anymore with all the activities they have.
I am a very active person and enjoy engaging the children in new and exciting activities, I have a very positive attitude and dedicate myself in everything I do. I don't mind getting my hands a little dirty and going above and beyond to place the children first. My previous experiences have helped me understand the amount of attention and effort each child needs, as well a caring and loving environment to help them grow.
If my friends were to describe me they would probably say very energetic, cheerful, and responsible. I try to be flexible, outgoing, open-minded and responsible sitter. I have excellent references should you be interested
I am bilingual, fluent in Ukrainian. I also took 3 years of spanish high school. I can serve as a tutor for language, or math since I am a finance major, or any other homework your child may need help with.
I would be happy to provide my references, for privacy reasons I didn't post them directly. :)

Katie impressed both my wife and I. She wanted to know how we would like our kids to spend their evening. She is the first sitter in as long as I can remember that wasn’t interested in how to operate the TV or access the Internet. She seemed full of energy and has a natural disposition that enabled her to connect with the kids quickly.

Katie is a very professional sitter. She confirmed the day before, arrived early and greeted our 2 boys and us warmly. She followed my wife's detailed instructions to a Tee. Our boys reported back that "Katie is very fun" as she played games with them after she helped them get their homework done. All around, she did a great job for us!

Katie has sat for my family twice - both times were with little notice and she was willing and able to accommodate us. My children warmed to her right away. It was very reassuring to have a sitter like Katie, who was willing to dance around and play pretend but could also get them to bed on time. I would certainly ask her to sit for us again. Koren P.

Katie sat for my 13-month-old daughter and was great. She was really engaged with her from the start, and it was obvious she was very good with kids and knew her stuff.

Katie has watched our 14 month old twins for several months now. She has lots of experience and knowledge when it comes to taking care of multiples. She is really great with the babies and they like spending time with her. I always feel comfortable leaving the babies in her care and would highly recommend her as a sitter.

Katie babysat for our 3 year old son one night this winter. She arrived on time and was immediately engaged with our son, making it comfortable for us to leave. She was high energy and seemed creative in her approach. We would recommend her!

When I met Katie, she was the girl I wanted to hire for my family. Unfortunately, Katie was only available for weekends and evenings. However, she happened to know someone who was available, and she gave me her information. Now we have a wonderful lady who works for us and when extra help needed, I will call Katie. Thanks Katie!

Katie is amazing. I am a very busy physician executive and have hired literally hundreds of employees for my company. Katie ranks as one of the best employees I have ever hired! She is considerate, respectful, responsible, excellent with my children, and is willing to do much more than babysitting. She strikes a good balance between being playful with my children and teaching them to be caring and accountable.

I would recommend Katie to any parent who is in need of superb babysitter or nanny. You will happy you hired her.

Review of Katie

I found Katie in a pinch and needed back up care for 1/2 a day. I found her to be extremely professional and timely. She arrived on time and was super nice to my son. My son is 9 months and has started to go through separation anxiety. This did not phase her one bit. We were also in the beginning of our son "Crying It Out" for naps. She picked up the routine and followed it to a tee. I will definitely use her again.
