I'm an English Teacher and I'm currently learning the Japanese language. I've been providing supervised care to children ranging from 7-months to 14-years since 2008. I care about children's safety and well-being and I'm First Aid certified to provide primary emergency care. I can plan and engage children in both fun and educational activities. I like reading with and to children. I also enjoy simple DIY science experiments (if permitted by the parents) such as using water, oil and honey to build density towers. I can also provide homework help and tutoring in English and Mathematics. I can care for dogs and cats too while babysitting. Feel free to contact me about a potential booking.
I've been providing supervised care for children ranging from 7-months to 14-years-old since 2008 as a babysitter and a Sunday school teacher. My duties involved preparing bottles and meals, changing diapers, taking children outdoors for free-play, homework help and doing the bath and bedtime routine. My Sunday school duties entailed storytelling, music class, preparing snacks and playground supervision. I've also worked with children in the classroom as a Mathematics and English teacher. When I'm babysitting, I follow the parents' rules. If permitted, I typically use crafts and activities to nurture children's creativity and curiosity but I also allow time for free-play. I like to read to and with children. In addition, I can provide homework help in Mathematics and English. I also provide the usual babysitter duties such as meal preparation and cleaning up. If required, I can also do the bath and bedtime routines. For babies and toddlers, I prepare bottles and baby food, change diapers and help with potty training.

We were so fortunate to have Kay look after our children (two girls, 8 and 10). Once we had interviewed her remotely, we knew right away that she was the sitter for us, and we wanted to make a job offer before her schedule filled up with other families.
Kay planned outings for the kids and activities with them at home, including math games.
I would not hesitate to have Kay look after my kids anytime and I would not hesitate to recommend her to other parents. I only wish we were staying in Kyoto longer or that she lived near us.
What a lovely, on time, reliable, considerate, kind and intelligent person. Highly recommend.
Kay was so lovely. She was flexible as well - I asked her to come 30 minutes earlier on very short notice and she was right on time. She was very sweet with my boys 😌
she is very kind and helpful.
she knows how to treat my children.
Katyusha is very friendly and confident. As an English teacher and Sunday school teacher, she is very creative with her students. She can engage her students in both fun and active games, as well as educational games. If you are looking for a First Aid certified babysitter, Katyusha will make a perfect addition to any CareFinder family.
