Meet Alexandra

  • Speaks French and Spanish
  • Comfortable with pets

I've been working as a nanny and tutor since 2005, and have worked with infants to pre-teens, as a sporadic, part-time sitter all the way up to a full-time traveling nanny. I worked as a first grade teacher at Saint Ann's in Brooklyn last year, but I didn't resign my contract as I gave birth to a son in July. I would love to be able to bring my baby to work with me---for a lower rate of course, and I could potentially only bring him for part of the time. If that isn't possible, I understand. I went to undergrad at Barnard College studying literature, and have an MFA in Fiction Writing and an MA in Literature from Columbia University. I love to write and read, and I tend to focus on reading and pretend play when I'm with kids (unless they're the more active kind, in which case Read more I'm up for anything :)) I'm proficient in both French and Spanish. My main priority is perfecting that blend of respect and fun, and keeping kids safe!
