I'm sorry for the lack of professionalism, after the first day she raised the rate to 25 per hour. even though she knew the distance. I paid 20 for the first day, unnecessarily. My friend, I raised the hourly rate so much after we agreed everything. Im realy sorry

I emailed Marta and explained that it is safe for me to come to the house and show both parents my certificates and spend time with their child who is under 2 years ild. Even with both parents present the baby cried most of the hour. I left and they were both pleased with me they asked me to come back. However I did tell them my price. So I don't feel bad as I always say to prospective clients to be careful who comes into your home without getting to know them first.
Sorry Marta if your not happy. I am a qualified mature lady who would not give any person false prices.
Thank you and I hope you will find some one.
It was very difficult for my wife and parents-in-law to make my son to sit and read etc. As a professional, she was able to mould my son and he seems to be much better. Unfortunately, we had to say thank you to Charmaine as he has moved to a different continent. We would have continued using her services provided my son would have remained in the UK.
She's helped him with listening , reading, writing, story telling etc,
I only hope we will be able to get somebody with her caliber. Thank you Charmaine for the all efforts.

It was a pleasure working with your son. I could see from my notes that he has improved remarkably. He also had a bond with me as he knew when I came to the house it was learning time and would go and sit on his chair ready.
I wish you all the best and thank you for appreciation me for my hard work with your son.
My daughter is working with Chairmain since few months. She jumped up on reading by two levels during that time. Chairmain teaches maths, writing, reading year 1. Chairmain is very organized. Keen to understand the schools requirements, gives feedback to areas we can work more, recommends sources we can buy for more improvement areas. You can always trust her, she sets the expectations right & ensures the child understands well.

Thank you Gosken. It is a pleasure teaching your daughter she has really improved in all aspects of the curriculum.
We have an 8 year old non-verbal autistic child. Charmaine has been looking after him on every Saturday since July 2017. She is a reliable, loving and hardworking special needs nanny. She has a very good understanding of various special needs of our child and she is warm and responsive to our child. Sh has always brought a professional and organized approach and our child likes her very much. I would highly recommend her as a special needs nanny.
Charmaine has been tutoring my son who has speech delay for the past 1 year .. he is 4 years old now.
She's helped him with the following : fine and pincular motor skills - ( rolling pin , using scissors, threading and holding a pencil with a firm grip) , Phoenic sounds, recognising numbers, reading,potty training etc.
She's helped him with listening , focussing and attempting to for longer periods of time . We've moved but because we've been unable to find a tutor like Charmaine I've decided to travel to make sure Harrison can continue to see her.
I highly recommend her she's fantastic!
