Hello! I am a Licensed Master's Social Worker (LMSW) at a New York City Hospital on the Upper East Side with several years of experience providing child care. I have my Master's of Science in Social Work from Columbia University School of Social Work with a concentration in Advanced Clinical Practice: Health, Mental Health, and Disabilities. I have experience as a babysitter and nanny for children ranging in ages from infants to elementary school age children. When I am not working as a social worker, I enjoy the arts including music, dance, and singing. As an undergraduate I studied creative writing and enjoy poetry. I am also very active and enjoy yoga, running, hiking, and bird watching in Central Park.

Tamara is warm and responsible and always does a great job babysitting our 2 children. I know I can count on her and would recommend her to anyone looking for a fantastic babysitter!

Tamara babysat for my toddler twins on a weekly basis during the last school year. She was engaged with the children and very reliable. I continue to employ her as an occasional sitter for all three of my children, including my infant.

Tamara is a remarkably mature, extremely kind sitter. Her calm demeanor and creative personality are wonderful additions to our home. Our 16 month old twin girls absolutely love her- she engages with them fully, makes them nutritious meals and sings and plays with them. She is really easy going and happy to add extra hours as needed, as long as her class schedule allows. We absolutely love Tamara and know you will, too!!
