Meet Julia

Hi! My name is Julia and I am a 20 year old politics major at Oberlin College with a passion for working with youth of all ages. I am the eldest of four kids, so being a caretaker has been part of my identity for over a decade. I will be working in Philadelphia during the summer of 2018, and am looking a part-time babysitting opportunities within the city. I have worked as a sleep away camp counselor for children ages 7-11, a special needs day camp counselor for teenagers, and an assistant kindergarten teacher in Quito, Ecuador, and as a student teach in a 4th grade classroom at a public school in Brooklyn. I have also babysat children since I was 14 years old and have experience with everything from crafts, to homework, to sports. I would be happy to provide references upon request. I absolutely love working with Read more children of all ages, interests, and abilities. I am caring, compassionate, and patient, and always strive to engage meaningfully with the children I'm working with. My personal hobbies include: singing, knitting, swimming, and cooking. I am an intermediate Spanish speaker and currently volunteer as a tutor for Spanish speakers studying for the U.S. citizenship exam. After completing my undergraduate studies, I intend to pursue law school and go into immigration law/policy work. I am looking for part-time babysitting opportunities between the mid June-mid August. I am working part-time for the Pennsylvania Democratic Party, and am hoping to babysit 15-20 hours per week, and as needed on special occasions such as late nights and weekends. I am completely comfortable cooking dinner, running errands, going on public transportation with kids, and putting children to sleep as well. Please do not hesitate to reach out and ask me anything! I look forward to hearing from you.
