Meet Mary

  • Speaks English and German

My name is Mary and I'm currently a student at UIC and living in South Loop. I'm studying Art History and Germanic Studies. This past summer I interned at the Illinois Holocaust Museum in Skokie, in addition to babysitting 3 children (ages 10, 7, and 5) in Hoffman Estates. I've recently returned from working as an Au Pair in Germany. I was there for 2 years and over that time looked after 2 children on a daily basis (ages 3 & 7). This including getting them ready in the mornings, taking them to, and picking them up from school. I spent most of the day with the children and became quite used to taking them to the park and other after-school activities. In addition to looking after the children I handled the family's laundry and kept up with light housekeeping. In the past I have also done evening nannying to Read more a 4-year-old asthmatic boy and after school babysitting/tutoring to an 8-year-old. I have also watched many other children of different ages with sporadic babysitting jobs. I am energetic and enthusiastic about engaging children in games or activities. I also consider myself respectful and communicative, offering text updates to parents as often as they would like to hear from me. Additionally I am used to cooking nutritious meals for children as well as putting them to bed. I would be available most mornings before 9 and most evenings after 3:30. Thanks for your consideration!
