About Me

*I AM NOW LOOKING FOR WORK TO START 7TH MARCH 2022*

Dear Parent/Agency,

Thank you for visiting my profile. I hope you are well.

I am an enthusiastic and determined First-Class Honours Graduate with teaching and childcare experience looking for a role as a Governess/Nanny/Tutor. I am currently based in Clifton, Bristol.

I have recently been working Full-Time (48 hours) week with a 15 months old Boy on a Sole/Share basis. Earlier this year, I worked with/helped mother to sleep train 6 week old twins along side working with a family in Clifton with an 8 month old. During lockdown, I spent some time tutoring/mentoring a year 6 in English via Zoom. I have previous experience working with reception, year 1 and 2 in a primary school in Bristol. I also currently training to be a Baby/Toddler swimming teacher.

During September last year, I returned from a trial in Geneva working as a Governess/Nanny for a VIP Russian family, G6, B4 and B2. The family offered me a contract but I chose not to accept due to hours being 24/7. Shortly after this I spent a few weeks with a family in Gstaad with a G3 and B5, this was more of a Housekeeping/chef role.

I have been working as a Teaching Assistant at a Primary school in Bristol. I have found this to be an extremely diverse and engaging role and through this position I have also gained experience working with children with speech, language and behavioural challenges. I started working one-to-one with a child with a tracheostomy fitted. I was her on-site carer, dealing with all medical needs as well as learning support. Due to the tracheostomy restricting her speech, I learnt to communicate with body language and facial expression, a process which has taught me great patience. These transferable skills have aided my development, allowing me to work effectively with children with Autism. I have gained an understanding of the importance of engaging the senses when working with Autistic children and have found art/play is a great way to incorporate this into daily activities. I have also been working with some of the youngest children (Reception class) including facilitating streamed phonics/group time and observing child development against the 'Statutory Early Years Framework'.

From the age of 14, I began regular childminding for families in Oxford with children of all ages with a variety of different needs. Responsibilities included daily/night routines, school pick-ups, help with schoolwork and delivering engaging creative activities. Due to my responsible, trustworthy nature I was recommended repeatedly to other families across the city. Since living in Bristol, I briefly childminded for a family nearby with children in year 6 and 10 who attend a private school. I helped the 9 year old with her Maths and English along with food technology sessions and craft activities.

With my positive, engaging and hard-working attitude I make for a good role model in and out of the classroom. I understand the importance of academic education along with the importance of learning through play and creativity incorporating this into my time spent with children. I am an open minded and creative individual and I can express myself through a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture, video editing, creative writing, guitar, singing, poetry, dance, role play, and enjoy inspiring others to do the same. I have independently set-up a small jewellery business, including establishing its branding, marketing and website design, and I also write a lifestyle blog on coping with anxiety and mental health issues.

I also have a passion for travel and exploring new cultures. Having had the opportunity to grow up in a small developing country, Samoa, from the age of 7 to 11, I have fostered an empathy for people from disadvantaged backgrounds. Since living in Samoa, I have travelled to a number of other countries (e.g. Vanuatu, Niue, Fiji, India, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia) and have become increasingly aware of the lack of education for many and the role education can play as a tool for social change as well as personal development.

I am currently looking for a full time/part time UK based role or travelling rota role, 1 week on one week off // 2 weeks on 2 weeks off // 3 weeks on 3 weeks off // month on month off but I am open to full time positions with the right family and salary. I am also interested in E-learning and teaching English online, for the time I am not with the family.

I enjoy working with families that embrace the outdoors and enjoy integrating outdoor play and exploration into early learning.

I welcome any questions you may have about my profile, CV or experience. Please contact me for DBS, passport copy, reference contacts.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards,
