About Me

{ Weekend Babysitter / Tutor } - Hi there, my name is Karen and I am a 23 year old teacher from Northern Ireland. I am moving over to Southampton (SO17) on Sept 1st - 31st July 2021 to take up a full-time position in a special school in the New Forest area. I have a keen interest in special educational needs and the early years and passionately advocate for multi-sensory teaching and learning. I enjoy hill-walking, reading, baking and self-studying languages. I believe myself to be a compassionate, enthusiastic, honest, adaptable and hard-working individual.

My Experience

I have taught mainstream children across the age range (4-16) and also have completed placements in special schools and specialist units. I worked as a full-time classroom assistant in Primary 1 (Reception) for the 2015/16 academic year. I also have experience in baby-sitting a number of children including a 10y/o boy with ADHD, an 8y/o girl with some severe allergies and a 4 y/o boy with non-verbal Autism. I have also taken care of two children under the age of 3.

My Qualifications

I hold a Bachelor of Education (BEd Primary) with 1st Class Honours. I have also completed a series of courses related to mental health, grief and trauma in children as well as SEN training (e.g. Makaton, Attention Autism, TacPac, PECS, Sensory Circuits). I have TEFL certification and 6months of experience teaching English language to international students aged 7-14. I completed a 5-week First Aid course in Oct 2019 and am qualified to practice until Oct 2022. I recently completed a DBS check (July 2020) and am registered with the update service.

My Availability

I am available for babysitting on Friday evenings and all day Saturday. I have my own car and am willing to travel up to 20minutes.
