About Me

Hi! My name is Sophie.

I am from Cardiff and recently moved back home to Penylan after 7 years away - partly spent in London, where I studied BA Drama and MA Applied Theatre, and partly in Warwickshire.

My interests include music, dance, drama and art. I am an experienced Performing Arts teacher to children aged 3-17, and I am currently working as a Teaching Assistant/Learning Support Assistant to a child with ASD and ALD (summer term ending 16th July 2021).

If you would like someone to help your child with homework then this is something I'd be happy to do. I am a second language Welsh speaker and hold a full UK driver's license with no convictions and have access to my own car.

I will be offering my services as a babysitter and tutor (English and second language Welsh) via childcare.co.uk, cost dependant on service/number of children.

Babysitting/Nannying: £15 p/h
Tutoring: £15-£25 p/h depending on level

I look forward to supporting local families, and can take roles during the summer holidays. I am relatively flexible with my availability and will often be in a position to accept last minute work.

I am not in a position to care for children in my own home, however I would be more than happy to come to your home/do outings with your children if this works for you.

The following documents can be found on my Profile:

CV
DBS Certificate
Covid Vaccine Record Card
UK Passport
UK Driving License

I am in the process of completing the necessary training (Home-based Childcare Training, Paediatric First Aid Training and Level 2 Food Safety Training) to become a Registered Childminder/signed up to Care Inspectorate Wales.

If you think I might be the right fit for you and your family, then please get in touch!

Kind regards,

Sophie Nethercott

My Experience

I am currently working as a Teaching Assistant/Learning Support Assistant at a Primary school, in a mixed Year 5 and 6 class. As well as supporting the class teacher with general tasks and behaviour management, I also cover Welsh lessons and work 1-2-1 with a child who has ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) and ASN (Additional Support Needs). I also support the other two class groups with learning.

I am an experienced performing arts teacher and have taught ages 3-18 through Stagecoach Performing Arts, and through my own online teaching business Gemini Dance Company. I have also worked with children in a range of additional contexts, including nurseries, arts and craft clubs and more. I was the Pastoral Care Lead on “The Challenge”, a residential job with the National Citizen Service, where I worked with children aged 15-17 with additional support needs, including Autism.

My Qualifications

2:1 BA (hons) Drama, Queen Mary University of London
MA Applied Theatre, Goldsmiths University of London

My Availability

Sophie has looked after my three kids and a dog lots of times and I trust her absolutely to do her best for them. They all love her and are delighted when they know she is coming over. She is sensible, trustworthy and fun. She’s got loads of energy and loves thinking of fun things for the kids to do. She is flexible and will always help out at the last minute if she can. I thoroughly recommend her.

I would highly recommend Sophie to anyone.

Sophie has been babysitting for my son (now aged 15) for many years. She has always been prompt and has stepped in at the last minute when I've been desperate. Sophie is energetic and can always think of something fun to do - she even makes homework fun and the fact that she is a welsh speaker has been very helpful.
Sophie is trustworthy and great with children and animals, I would (and have) absolutely recommend her services to anyone looking for help.
