Nanny in Montreal

I have been babysitting for a little over 6 years now. I have recently gained experience working with children on acquiring English as a second language, an experience I have loved. I enjoy encouraging children to get outside and exercise their imaginations, whether it is through crafting, reading, dancing anything active. I also enjoy experiencing the city with children and introducing them to new ideas, places, and communities. I am comfortable and enthusiastic about joining a household and aiding families in maintaining a happy, healthy home. Languages English, fluent French, working knowledge Education B.A. English literature, Concordia University Babysitter, Great Falls, Montana, 2006-2010 I was babysitting for multiple families while I was in high school, which was a time in which I realized my passion for teaching and working with children. Teacher, Second Language Acquisition, Montreal, Quebec April 2013-November 2013 In this position, I spent two hours every day working with Stewart, a two-year-old Chinese-speaking boy. I spent time with him both in the home and exploring the city. I learned how to become a part of the family dynamic, which I feel is essential to creating the comfortable environment necessary to second language acquisition, especially in young children. I also gained experience in communicating with children through my general disposition, as it took some time for Stewart and I to understand each other. I cultivated an even stronger sense of patience and cheerfulness to integral to childcare. Nanny/Teacher, Second Language Acquisition, Montreal, Quebec February 2014-Present In this position, I take care of three Francophone children (aged 7, 5, and 2) four nights a week for 3-4 hours. I assist in dinner preparations, feeding the children, cleaning up after dinner, and going through the before-bed routine: brushing teeth, bath time, etc. I also help the children with acquiring English as a second language. Understanding and fitting into a family routine has been very special to me with this job, as the part of the day I am in the home is one that has the potential be stressful, as the children can be tired from school and activities. I have learned to assume the role of diffuser in times of stress, and maintain a carefree environment for the children.
