Meet Emma

  • Comfortable with pets

Hello! My name is Emma and I am an aspiring pediatrician studying Biochemistry at Stony Brook University who is looking for babysitting opportunities for the summer. Working with children is my passion. I am the oldest of three children and first gained experience in childcare simply by looking after my younger sisters (which, to the disappointment of my 12-year-old self, was unpaid). As I have gotten older, I have gained experience as well through babysitting neighbors' children, working at summer camps, mentoring middle schoolers and instructing baby ballet classes for little girls ages 2-6. Seeing the looks on their faces when they finally understand something you teach them is absolutely priceless and brings me the greatest joy imaginable. Building connections with the children has also been an extremely rewarding part of my work. I remember first meeting my middle school mentees a few years ago. That group of boys and Read more girls definitely had rough exteriors as many young adults do (I didn't blame them, I remember how tough it was to be 13). However, after a short period of time, they began trusting and joking around with me and definitely warmed up. We even still keep in touch to this day and they always come to me for advice to get them through high school (yes, including with their girlfriend and boyfriend issues). Through becoming a pediatrician, I hope to have these types of experiences for the rest of my life and help children in the most ultimate way possible. What sets me apart are two things passion and compassion. This is what I love to do and I like not simply teaching or watching kids, but building mutual connections with them so that we become friends. My friends have always described me as the "mom friend" because of my caring and cautious nature. I know how all age groups of kids work and have had experience with extremely pleasant as well as difficult to work with children, I've seen it all. I hope that you will give me the opportunity to prove this to you as your new babysitter!
