    About Me

    I have multiple years of experience working with families and educating children. I have studied family dynamics, child psychology and the art of communication and emotional intelligence. I closely follow the Love and Logic platform which, in my experience, provides healthy habits for ultimate growth and connection between parents, their children and their caretaker. I am patient, assertive, flexible and value fostering independence with children. My passion is creating art (playing music, drawing, dancing, painting, poetry etc) and this is often involved with my care taking. My top priorities are being safe, healthy and happy! Working with young, new minds is a beautiful privilege that has changed me in amazing ways. I am looking for a family with a similar focus on nurturing emotional growth and encouraging education and the arts.

    Education

    Education is a life long pursuit of mine, I am a very self motivated learner. I have taught myself a variety of skills including nutrition, sewing (pattern and costume making), photography and a variety of musical instruments. I have recorded, designed and released my own albums and a book of photographs. I am well versed in the arts, natural horsemanship, British history and simple mechanics.

    Experience / Qualifications

    3+ years of tutoring in all general academic studies as well as art, cooking, crafts, plant identification, emotional intelligence and communication and life skills.
