Nanny in Vancouver

Hello, my name is Kristen, and I am currently living close to the UBC campus working on my Doctorate in music performance. A bit about my background: I grew up in Ottawa, close to my two younger brothers and my large extended family. I like to visit my family cottage when I am back home. I attended Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario for my undergrad in music, and then I spent two years in Boston earning my Masters. Part of my reason for choosing UBC was the appeal of the beautiful West coast. I am a big nature lover and I have enjoyed exploring Vancouver. I play the oboe at a professional level, and I currently play as a freelancer with several local orchestras. I also play piano at a grade 8 RCM level. As a private music teacher, I have worked with kids ages 5-19 in oboe, piano, and music theory. I feel comfortable speaking in French. I was a French immersion student from grades 4-12 and I have maintained my fluency. While in Boston, I worked as a French scribe with a physically-disabled PhD student as she wrote her thesis in French literature. My childcare experience has mainly been within my own extended family during summers home from university. I have worked extensively with my younger cousin who is high-functioning Asbergers, planning full-day activities surrounding his interests, preparing meals, and helping with his homework. I have also looked after another younger cousin with Downs syndrome for several unsupervised hours at a time. Growing up with two younger brothers, I was often given age-appropriate responsibilities. I am an experienced private music teacher to ages 6-17, which I think is a skill that transfers directly to childcare. In music lessons, it\'s important to be aware of the interests and limits of each individual child, improvising and guiding them into a positive learning situation.
