Hello, my name is Emily! I am half Japanese and half British. I was born and raised in Japan and have been in the UK since 15. I am fluent in English and Japanese.
In Japan, I have worked as a summer camp leader for 4 years, where I taught sports to children aged 6 to 12. I have also worked in after school care for children (aged 6-12), helping homework and organizing outdoor activities. In England, I helped out in a Japanese kindergarten (aged 3-5), teaching children Japanese, as well as organizing and playing games.
My hobbies are playing sports and arts & crafts, and I am more than welcome to do them with your kids! I love to move my body and would love to take your kids to the park or enjoy some outdoor activities! I can also take care of your cute pets at the same time, as I have a pet dog as well. Online services are welcomed too, so I can still interact with your kids even if we can't meet in person! Such services include; reading books to your kids, helping their homework, singing and dancing together, or even teaching sports that your kids can do indoors/outdoors!
Feel free to ask any questions, and I am looking forward to having the opportunity to take care of your children!

Emily did a great job of bonding with my 6 year old daughter. First she got her to complete her English homework. Then she brought some art supplies, and encouraged my daughter to draw nice pictures. She also took her to the local park. I will hire her again. Highly recommended.
