Greetings! This sounds like a wonderful job that could be a great fit for me. I love kids, and have worked with them for a living for most of my life-- as an elementary teacher, preschool teacher of 4 and 5 year olds, toy-making teacher, and more recently as a reading tutor and Suzuki violin teacher. I love my tutoring work, and would like to continue doing it, but I'd also like a part time job working with kids. I have a M.Ed. in Reading Education and have been trained in 3 different phonics methods, so if your child would like extra help with literacy skills, I'm the nanny for them. And I've been trained in Suzuki Violin Books One and Two, so can also offer violin lessons for your child once they get to be at least 8 years old. For many years, I traveled from school to school Read more teaching a course called Artful Toys, so if your child would like to learn how to make balancing butterflies, air-powered spinning tops, tumbling dolphins, nodding cows, or optical illusion devices, I'd be glad to show them how. As my references will attest, kids tend to gravitate towards me, and I towards them. I should mention that I don't drive, so am hoping that it would be possible to use the T for this job. I could start in early September. Hope to hear back from you, and thanks for your time and consideration. Chris Mandell
