I'm a 30 year old qualified primary school teacher.
I am very active and have many hobbies such as: playing sports (American football, basketball, kickboxing, volleyball, football, badminton, table tennis), baking, gardening, reading, listening to and playing music, DIY, photography, painting and drawing and many other activities.
I am a cheerful, friendly, reliable, well-organized person, genuinely interested in helping children develop to their full potential.
I have worked as a live-in au pair for more than 2.5 years and as a live-out after-school nanny for 8 years. I did occasional babysitting as well. During that time I looked after children from 1.5 to 16-year-olds and worked for more than 10 families.
I have worked as an assistant instructor teaching children kickboxing for a year.
I also have volunteered to help out in 2 primary schools for a month. During my placements at university, I worked as a trainee teacher at local primary schools and after graduation, I worked as a class teacher for 6 months.

Dora (although goes by Dory, like the fish) is gentle and great with kids, and recall lots of fun times with various games activities, with a particular interest in Lego. Thanks for all your help!
Dory proved to be reliable, kind and patience.
She even come to meet us free of charge few days in advance.
She took care of my daughter for 4 days and they both had great fun: running in the park, playground, playing with dolls and doing a lot of art and crafts.
I would highly recommend her!
We rarely use a babysitter, relying mostly on the help of friends and family. I admit I was nervous at first about contacting someone we didn't know. We contacted Dory since she has a great profile and has taken the effort to invest in a premium profile which definitely adds a level of assurance and professionalism to the arrangement. Dory was prompt and polite with her reply and we spoke on the phone about her experience. She asked about any medical concern or allergies which was very reassuring and we spoke about my son's favourite TV shows and toys. Dory let me know when she was on her way and arrived in good time. My son can be shy with strangers but Dory made him feel at ease straight away, chatting and playing and, happily, everyone was very comfortable and getting along nicely. Dory kindly messaged me while we were out to let me know everything was ok and that my son was in bed. We were really impressed with Dory's babysitting, she was great with my son, patient with us, friendly, down-to-earth, tidy, attentive, and very reliable. Thankyou, Dory, our much-needed night out couldn't have happened without you. Hope to see you again soon!
