Meet Tamara

  • Speaks English and Russian
  • Comfortable with pets

Hi! My name is Tamara and I am a mother of 2 grown sons. I started being a nanny in 2001. I have over 12 years of nanny experience and previously taught elementary school English for 6 years. I am extremely comfortable being with newborns and older children. I also speak native Russian and if you'd like, will be happy to teach your child Russian language. They say I am a reliable, exceptionally caring, responsible, honest, very patient, attentive and easy-going person. I love to spend time with kids, especially outdoors in the park, playgrounds, museums, etc. I love to take kids to classes (music, art or sports) and can arrange play dates with other children from your neighborhood. It gives me great pleasure to work with a child to build their skills and see their improvements over time and share in their amazement at discovering something new. I find Read more the entire process rewarding and enriching. I am CPR trained and would love another infant to care for. I am extremely flexible in terms of hours and can provide suggestions about baby products, activities, etc. I prefer working with younger babies and helping new parents.

Tamara started caring for our child since he was 2 months old for the past 2 years. We couldn't have survived without her! She was extremely patient not only with our son but with his new parents who needed guidance along the way. Tamara was always there to encourage his development from crawling to walking and talking. She always went above and beyond and is extremely flexible and generous with her time. She loves bringing gifts for our son, whether it's something he needs like a teething ring or something to bring comfort like a soft stuffed bear. We've been blessed to have Tamara as part of our family and is sad to part ways. She will make a great addition to the next lucky family who needs her expertise and care! Evelyn, Alfredo and Storm.
