My name is Marissa and I am a 25 year old female living in Arlington, VA. I work in downtown DC for a government relations firm. During the school year, I volunteer every Thursday night as a tutor with the program, Community Club. The student I tutor attends a DC public school and is now going into the 4th grade. Once a month, including during the summer, I take my student and his two older brothers (ages 13 and 16) out for a fun activity. We often go to a Smithsonian museum, the zoo, bowling or miniature golf. I am originally from Upstate, New York and moved to the DC area after graduating from Syracuse University in 2009. I have a dual major in public affairs and political science. I also come from a large, tight-knit family. I am one of 26 first grandchildren on my father's side. With that Read more being said, I have babysat for cousins/family friends since 13 years old (when I took the Red Cross babysitting course). I also tutored part-time at a day care while in college. Although I am not up-to-date with my CPR/First Aid certifications, I was a lifeguard for six years during high school and college. If requested, I'd be happy to recertify. My interests include cooking, traveling, watching/playing sports and spending time with family and friends in the DC area. I also have experience babysitting for children with special needs. I'm looking to become a "date night" babysitter for weekends and weekday evenings. I have my own car and feel comfortable transporting your child (ren) to/from activities. I do not smoke and will not babysit for a family that smokes around their child (ren). I'd be happy to provide local references.
