I was born in Japan and grew up in the US and Canada. I am currently working as a freelance interpreter and translator. I like to read, doodle, cook, spend time outside, and run, all of which I also enjoy doing with children. I grew up playing sports and love to play with children outside while moving about. I also play the violin and ukulele and would love to enjoy music with children as well. In the past I babysat for two elementary school kids on and off for a year, worked as an assistant at an international nursery school in Tokyo for 3 years, spent 2 summers as a counselor at an international summer camp, was an after-school tutor teaching elementary school level english and math for 4 years, and also have certification to teach English as a second language. I look forward to spending time with your children!
-1 year babysitting two elementary school children ages 6 and 8, around twice a month.
I helped them finish their homework, ate dinner with them, played with them, and put them to bed.
-3 years working at an international nursery school in Tokyo with children ages 4 to 7. I mainly helped the teachers with whatever they needed, and ate lunch with the children as well as did some activities with them.
-2 summers working at an international summer camp (3 week-program) for kids ages 4 to 10. I helped welcome the kids being dropped off by their parents and did activities with them.
-4 years as an english and math tutor. The student was 8 when I started working with her, and around 12 when I left. I worked with her once a week for two hours.
