Mariah’s Bio

Hello,

My name is Mariah, I am majoring in Business Management and minoring in Vocal Classical Music Performance at the University of St. Thomas, I am certified in CPR/First Aid, I speak German, I passed the Nanny Skills Exam and I love kids!

I am seeking occasional babysitting and tutoring positions during the school year and/or summer.

I am mom-approved and I am not a TV sitter; I will involve your children in age-appropriate activities. I was a full-time nanny for a family with 3 school-age boys in Fargo, ND during the summer. I transported them to and from their activities, we played a lot of sports, and we went on various "field trips" to places like Yunker Farm, the Red River Zoo, the library, etc. I don't think we spent more than a couple of non-consecutive hours a week inside the house.

I also tutored a Kindergartner in reading and math and an incoming third grader in reading, math, and spelling.

I am an active outdoors person who loves to play all kinds of sports (volleyball, tennis, golf, basketball, Frisbee golf, soccer, softball, football, etc.) and I love to play sports with the children in my care. I am a bit of a tomboy myself, so I have no problem with throwing a spiral or shooting hoops.

The fine arts also play a huge role in my life. I was involved in musicals, drama, and dance in high school and now I am involved in choir in college.

I have found that most children love to take part in acting games or sing-a-longs of some kind. Sometimes I teach them simple dance moves from a musical I've been in like Singing' in the Rain or All Shook Up.

Thank you for your time, and please let me know if your family will be seeking a sitter, nanny or tutor.

Babysitter

Mariah babysit for our family for the first time last weekend. She was on time, brought a basket of games and toys with her and my children loved her. We definately will have her back!

Responsible and fun

Mariah was very good with our son (5 yo), as we had a last-minute need for a babysitter right at bedtime. She communicated with us really well, and jumped right in to read him bedtime stories and got him to sleep. Will definitely be calling on her again!

Great Sitter

I have had Mariah babysit twice now for my toddler and newborn. We are very comfortable with her and think she's fantastic. Mariah came to the house both times with books and toys to keep our toddler entertained. The second time she came, my daughter was excited all day that Mariah would be coming with books and toys for her. No matter how many toys a child has, they tend to get pretty excited about anything new or different. We also noticed that Mariah picks up and does dishes. This is something I always did back in my own babysitter days, but I haven't found that to be the norm with our sitters. Another thing I appreciate about Mariah is that she sends out a text message with her availability. We have found Mariah to be dependable, flexible, and willing to do what she can to accomodate us.
