I've had babysitting experience for the last 8 years with a variety of ages from newborns to teens. Most of my experience has been with newborns and toddlers, but I also have experience with teenagers. I also have babysitting experience with an autistic child. I have also mentored and tutored two third-grade students for over a year, so I have experience with a variety of ages and teaching (or implementing school work). I just graduated from University of Rochester, with honors as a premed student so right now I am taking time off before medical school. Also, I live on the UES. I love babysitting, and I started babysitting when I was in late junior high/high school. As a psychology major, I realize the early years and into adolescence are critical learning years for children, and I know how important it is to be trusting, reliable, and positive for children. Read more I am incredibly patient, active (I enjoy running in my free time), and most importantly friendly/easy to get along with. I think I'm a unique babysitter in that I enjoy being outdoors, taking kids to the park, and I believe in childcare without technology! Monopoly, parks, and writing with chalk outside are all fun things I am more than happy to do with your kids! I am also happy to implement technology into their lives through learning applications and such if that is something you would like!
