Hello there. My name is Tutu, for short. I'm just a very nice & smart person with a lot of love in my heart. I graduated at the City Colleges of Chicago and have been a teacher for 6 years and a caregiver for an estimated 10 years. I first started by assisting my grandmother with her home daycare which sometimes went to on to overnight. I have worked at two Montessori schools, one of which was accredited. As a classroom assistant and the French language teacher (after-school activities), I cared for up to 26 boys and girls at times. I especially love singing and reading with children and doing creative/artistic activities. Personally AND educationally I love things, such as games or puzzles, that stimulate and challenge your mind intellectually. I look forward to working for you! Thank you for your time.

Olatutu was an absolutely reliable sitter who always came up with interesting activities to do with my 4 year old. He was always relaxed and happy about how his day had gone when I got home. I recommend her wholeheartedly.

Tutu has been great with my kids, 3 and 1year old and they are comfortable with her. She is fun loving. Has been consistent and handles them well. I feel comfortable when she is with them. She has been available on short notice in picking them from school, that was really appreciated. I highly recommend her.

Tutu was a very good provider for my son, Victor who is also Nigerian. She cooked a familiar meal for Victor, for which has been very helpful for his adjustment back into the states.
