About Me

Hi, my name is Sam, I'm 31 and i'm based in Harrogate. I am available to offer private tutoring to children aged 5-8, ad hoc child care, and babysitting from after 2.30pm Monday-Friday and I can be available weekends if booked in advance. I have 12 years of experience working with children and would love to chat more about your needs to see if I can help. I always recommend we (me, you, and your child) informally meet prior to tutoring or childcare to ensure you and your child feel comfortable before tutoring or babysitting and a further chance to ask questions.

My Experience

During the day I run my own online tutoring business teaching English as a foreign language with a focus on phonics. I have tutored online for 5 years, including mentoring and training new online teachers. I now also offer face to face tutoring where I can help guide students with their reading comprehension or help build confidence in the first 5 phases of phonics. I hold a BA(Hons) in Primary Education, with a specialism in Early Years (ages 3-7). I previously worked as a teaching assistant at Ashville Primary School before gaining experience teaching English as a foreign language overseas.

Ad Hoc Childcare and Babysitting:
I hold a level 6 childcare qualification and I am Ofsted Registered (DBS, Level 3 Paediatric First Aid, Liability Insurance) which offers parents the option to claim government support.

I was a Live-in Assistant House Parent at Queen Ethelburga's Collegiate where my responsibilities included; lead carer of 4 and 5-year-old siblings, creating a daily routine, and supporting their development. The role also included looking after 20+ boarding children aged 7-11; helping to get them ready for bed and for school, assisting with homework, managing fire drills, shared responsibility of school trips, laundry and cleaning duties, overnight duty, safeguarding, and more.

I was also a live-in Au Pair, providing 14 hours of support 6 days a week for children aged 1 and 6. Duties included childcare, cleaning, and daily activities. Previous job roles also include; Temporary Nanny for a fitness boot camp, Nursery Practitioner at Safehands Day Nursery, contracted babysitter and 12 years of experience working with children.

My Qualifications

BA (hons) in Primary Education (Early Years Ages 3-7)
Advanced course in teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL)
First Aid Level 3 Paediatric (25th November 2021)
Ofsted Registered (Pending)

My schedule is now almost fully booked but I have some potential availability Thursday or Friday afternoons for tutoring or Friday and Saturday evenings for babysitting if booked in advance. Thank you.
