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.

Hi Kesak7.
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!

Hello Anu.
Thank you for your kind words I enjoy working with you and your your family and your son is a delightful boy who I enjoy working with and seeing him progress.

I would also like to thank your sons grandma who has helped me with your son, by helping keep up the activities that I have set for him weeky I can see this has helped him immensely

I will continue to work with you all, until you find a suitable tutor in your area.

Due to a change in work commitments, my husband and I were in urgent need of a nanny to care for our 10 month old son early in the morning before nursery followed by dropping him off shortly after.

We were delighted to have found and met Charmaine who immediately came across as professional and positive during our introduction at home and at the nursery.

She made regular contact with us which put us at ease considering this was the first time we were leaving him alone with someone other than ourselves.

This job was for only a few hours, early in the morning and at short notice, but in spite of this Charmaine really went the extra mile. She arrived on time and even earlier and was very helpful with feeding, dressing and playing games with our son.

Charmaine gave us a good feeling from the start and on day 3 it was obvious from our son’s smile that he was happy too.

We would not hesitate to use her again in the future.

Thank you Jule279.
It was a pleasure working with you and your son, I look forward to working withyou again..

We had to find a nanny at short notice to care for our 2 small children whilst we did a weeks trip abroad. As soon as I met Charmaine I knew that she would be great. She made sure that she met the kids on several occasions before the job started, understood their routines and what they liked and met their teachers. She was really well prepared, and extremely experienced. She messaged me everyday while we were away and made sure the children contacted their grandparents daily too. She did their after school learning with them, and maintained their routines. She also did their washing and ironing, which was a huge bonus. I would absolutely recommend Charmaine and we will definitely be asking for her again and ongoing. Kids are talking about her all the time, which is great. I am so pleased with how it all worked out.
