Hi! My name is Melissa. I am 23 years old and recently graduated with my Master's in Elementary Education from Quinnipiac University. While I look for a full time teaching job, I am substituting and babysitting. I absolutely love children and have a lot of experience working with children of all ages. In addition to over 7 years of babysitting experience for the past 10 summers I have worked at Stonybrook Swim Club as a lifeguard, kids camp instuctor, swim lesson instructor, and dive team coach. When I am away at school in CT, I work at a nearby gymnastics club. I work with the mom & tot class, preschoolers, and children up to age 15. I have experience babysitting infants to teenagers, including experience tutoring and helping children with homework (especially in math). I am certified in CPR, Lifeguarding, First Aid, and Water Safety, have a clean driving record, Read more and my own car. I am looking for a  babysitting/nannying or tutoring job in the afternoons. I am also available on the weekends. I am also more than happy to do errands, help clean around the house, cook, and do laundry etc.
