Hi there, I’m Kara :) I’m just a college student looking to earn supplemental income to make ends meet! I figured tutoring, babysitting & petsitting would be ideal with my schedule. I have 3 younger brothers and I’m the oldest of all my cousins. Needless to say, I was born into a position of caring for children. My youngest brothers are five year old twins and I’ve mastered the art of having them fed, bathed, teeth brushed, in bed before my family gets home from an outing. It’s always nice my mom getting to come home to a relaxed environment after her time out. My youngest brothers have a severe peanut and chickpea allergy, thank god I have never had to use an epipen but I know how to if needed. I have taken CPR training in the past but my certification is not up to date, as it costs Read more money to renew each year. I have worked in the healthcare industry the last 5 years with elderly and special needs patients. I have no issues helping children with special accommodations, anything I’m unsure of I am willing to learn what works best for your family. Let me know how I can help! Im a student at EMU & I love science homework. Anything else, I will gladly help them google it until we find the correct methods and answers lol. I’d love to spend some time with your children & see if it’s a good fit for them. Feel free to message me with any questions you may have, I look forward to meeting with you!!
