I am currently a professional dance instructor, and I am looking for one-off jobs throughout the next couple weeks in August before the school year starts at various studios where I teach.
I love working and playing with kids of all ages. In addition to providing occasional care for several families, last year, on a weekly basis I nannied an infant, and the year before that I nannied a 2-year-old who is now in preschool. I am happy to provide references. I have had over 10 years of teaching and childcare experience, including working with kids with special needs. I love playing active games with kids such as hide-and-seek, tag, dance games I use in the classes I teach, and theatre games. I also love to play board games, card games, and games that get kids to think. I have a strong background in performing and visual arts, so I love working with kids who like to use their imaginations. I think it’s really fun to come up with creative activities for kids, whether make-believe or arts and crafts.
In regard to my background, I graduated from Northwestern University with a strong liberal arts education, so I am capable of tutoring in a variety of subject areas. I currently teach dance at a variety of studios and after-school programs throughout Chicago. I have had experience as a camp cabin counselor, and I have worked as a Teaching Assistant at Northwestern University s Center for Talent Development. I also interacted with kids on a weekly basis as a performer and dance captain at Chicago’s American Girl Place Theater for four years.
Whenever I am in charge of taking care of kids, I do my best to actively engage with them, keeping them involved in fun activities and helping them to learn and grow. Kids are a huge part of my life, and I think that working with kids really is my calling.
