Emma’s Bio

Hello!
I just finished my sophomore year at Oberlin College where I am a Politics and Law & Society major.  I also have a strong interest in education.  I’ve taken education classes, do teaching and tutoring, and hope to pursue a career as an educator.  (It’s just that we don’t have a big enough Education department to offer a major-- if we did, I’d definitely be an Education major!)  I began babysitting four years ago for a family with infant twins and a 2-year-old boy and a family with a 4-year-old boy.  Though I haven't been babysitting while I'm at school, I work with kids on a regular basis through the various education outreach programs that I am a part of.  I have more babysitting experience with younger kids (infant to 4 years old) and tons of experience with kids from ages 6 to 17 through my teaching and tutoring work.  I absolutely adore kids-- playing with them and listening to their stories—and would be so excited to care for your children this summer.
I have experience teaching Spanish and tutoring math and I would be excited to do such activities with your child(ren) if you are looking for educational support during the summer.  I have two years of experience as a Spanish instructor in the Oberlin elementary schools.  Through a program called SITES (Spanish In The Elementary Schools), I have co-taught a 4th-grade classroom and a group of homeschooled kids ages 6-10.  These classes are taught completely in Spanish and involve tons of motions and high energy.  (An article about my Spanish teaching work: http://www.morningjournal.com/articles/2013/04/22/news/doc5174a90741a08600470926.txt?viewmode=fullstory)  I am proficient in Spanish, and I am really excited to be studying abroad in Seville, Spain this fall where I’ll take all my classes in Spanish and work to achieve fluency.  I also have experience doing one-on-one math tutoring with a 5th grader and Fraction Club (an active after-school program) with 2nd through 5th graders.
I don’t have a strict babysitting philosophy or rules-- I would rather chat with you and your children to figure out how to incorporate the home environment in a way that will be most comfortable for you.  I definitely intend to interact with kids in a very positive and encouraging way.  I would love to do arts and crafts, cook and bake, run around outside, and/or teach Spanish to your children!  I am able to prepare nutritious meals for children and ensure their safety as they play.  Please let me know if there’s any more information I can provide to you.  I am more than happy to chat on the phone and figure out if I can be of help to you.  I’ll be living in Burlington for the month of June (beginning June 1) and would be delighted to start as soon as possible.

Emma was kind, on time, responsible and fun!! I threw her in with five little boys in the early afternoon and when I came home at night they were all asleep, house was clean and the boys were so happy the next morning telling me all about her! :)
