Hi. My name is Tiffany. I am a preschool teacher looking to do baby-sitting around Tokyo or Kanagawa area. I have over 10 years experience teaching students in U.S.A. and Japan. I have many play to learn lesson ideas and children books. I am also familiar with children songs. I enjoy doing arts and crafts as well as science experiments with children. I grew up raising two younger sisters ((who are 5 -10 years younger than me)). Diaper changing and cooking are also fine. I am OK with any kind of pet. Big or small dogs, cats and even reptiles are fine! I have experience caring for all kinds of animals.
A little about me: I am from New Jersey and NYC. My native language is English. I can also speak basic Japanese and read hiragana/katakana. I know just a few kanji. I have been living in Japan for almost 13 years. I love to teach children and I love animals. I grew up caring for two much younger sisters. So, I think I still have the big sister kind of personality. My main trait is patience. I train in Martial Arts. I like to try new cooking recipes. My Grandmother was Polish, so I like to make Polish food and cookies too. I look forward to the opportunity to work with your family!
I have over ten years experience teaching young learners in both America and Japan. I have experience with Montessori, Reggio Emilia and other teaching methods. I believe in learning through play. While I love teaching students, I am looking to switch to babysitting for flexible hours. I am also OK with pets and have my own.
I have taught from 9 months old up to 15 years old. I mainly worked with preschoolers( 2-4 and 5-6). I taught Mommy and Me classes and one year old classes which were really fun too. I have developed curriculums, lesson plans, bought classroom materials(books, toys, art and science materials), take general care of children, make sure they are safe, teach them to become independent(put on their shoes, toilet training, etc.), teach them to respect others and themselves, and learning through play. Learning through play activities: Art, Science, STEM, Sensory Boxes, Math and Literacy Games. Of course, I also did dancing and singing kid songs with my classes.
I train in Martial Arts.
I sometimes work as a volunteer at shelters or help animals on my own. I have raised kittens, have experience with an old cat giving sq fluids, taken care of dogs, a gerbil, a turtle, lizards and even a snake.
We ordered her to play with our 3 years old son. She is really a professional of the child education based on her long experience in preschool teaching.
At the beginning, we expected my son to learn English conversation, but actually she provided much more - basic things such as vegetables grow on the ground, fruits grow in the tree, etc.
It was very kind and the children soon became familiar with it.
Tiffany is a real sweet girl, very kind and understanding. She took very good care of my 6 year daughter. I would hire her again.
