Ive always had a maternal instinct, although I havent always felt like I could lean into it professionally. This is because on a societal level there is a devaluation of women, which consequently means a devaluation of things associated with womanhood, including motherhood. In my family I was encouraged to go to the best schools in order to become a doctor or a lawyernever a teacher or (gasp!) a nanny. But I have since learned the power in womanhood and the vitality of motherhood and mothering. I enjoy motheringit feels like my gift to the world, which is why Ive consistently sought out opportunities to do it.
I have been tutoring children since I was fifteen. This past August, right before I turned twenty five, I left my last tutoring job to travel the world. That makes ten years of lessons and laughter, ten years of projects and joy. Ive tutored reading and writing skills, English speaking skills, led a fashion club, and conquered the homework blues.
Now Im hoping to expand into a more holistic role where I can form a relationship that goes deeper than school life. Ideally Id like to find a family I can grow with and really get to know.
Depth has always been important to me, and I understand that it takes time to understand a system, and what is a family unit but a tightly woven system?
I work intuitively but also analytically: I observe through feeling, feelings which I then process into tangible thought. This way of being helps me intuit the needs of others and the needs of a given system.
So Im basically always asking myself: how can I help?
