Hello! I’m Elyssa, a fourth year student at Waseda University. I was born in Japan but raised in Hawaii, in America, so I am bilingual in both Japanese and English (but more native in English). Since high school, I have been babysitting friends and family members’ children, therefore giving me over 6 years of babysitting experience. Additionally, I have been working as a private tutor in Tokyo for nearly 4 years now, so I have no problem helping with homework or just supporting to create an English environment for your child. I would love to share my passions for drawing/arts and crafts, reading, and baking with your child! Looking forward to the opportunity to take care of your children!
**PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM ALLERGIC TO ALL CATS AND SOME DOGS & CANNOT BABYSIT CHILDREN FROM THESE HOUSEHOLDS**
I have 6 years of experience babysitting for family members and friends between the ages of 4-10, as I have been babysitting since I was 16, in high school. I also have 4 years of experience teaching English to children between the ages 3-14, ranging from teaching the ABC’s to high school level homework support. Although I have experience with children from all ages above 3, I enjoy younger children because I love seeing the world through their eyes. Even simple activities like reading a book or going to the park is always a different experience with every child and I love children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for almost anything.
For these reasons, I love to constantly be around children through either babysitting or tutoring.

We’re are very thankful that kids had a wonderful time with Elyssa. Our daughter said that Elyssa was really fun and that she can’t wait to see her again. Elyssa really knows how to interact with kids in a natural way! Thank you so much!!!
Elyssa is a super amazing sitter. Her cheerful and fun atmosphere made my kids have a wonderful time. Thank you for the lovely time.
My daughter loved spending time with Elyssa.
Great babysitter with amazing personality. Our daughter loved her!
She was very friendly so that my son could play with her so naturally. She ran a lot with him and played actively with him as I requested. Also, I am glad she gave us some pieces of advice to brush up my son’s English.
She is cheerful and bright. My son immediately liked her. She is also a good English teacher as she spoke a lot of English to my son. I would like to ask her again.
