Hello Parents, My name is Melissa Galarza. I am 23 years old and I do not have a full time job right now but I am a full time honor student at Queens College. I am studying Speech because my goal is to become a Speech Pathologist in the future. In addition to English, I am also fluent in Spanish. I have been the caregiver of 2 families and have been babysitting for over 4 years. I love children and being able to take care of them as well as teach them and make their days fulfilled with fun. Hope you consider me as your next babysitter. Thank you

Melissa sat for us on short notice one night - 3 kids: 5yo, 9yo, and 12yo. Amazingly - she was able to keep everyone happy and on schedule during a school night the very first time she walked in the house. Since that night we have had her sit a number of evening over the past couple months and the kids all enjoy her company. She is adept at meeting each child's needs where they are - more help for the kindergartener - gentle guidance for the tween.
