About Me

I am 43 years old and married with three children between the ages of eight and fourteen. I am NNEB Qualified and Level 3 SEN Teaching Assistant.

I am a full- time mum and I home educate my 14 year old autistic daughter part time. She is in a special needs tutorial centre for the rest of the time. In my spare time I enjoy reading, arts and crafts, swimming and cooking with my children.

My Experience

I am NNEB and SEN Level 3 Teaching Assistant Qualified. Currently I am home schooling my A.S.D. fourteen year old child two days a week, (she attends a special tutorial school for the rest of the week). I have also looked after an ADHD child in his own home and have experience looking after special needs children in a school setting and home setting. I have nine years experience working mainly in Day Nurseries Working in the baby room and two to three room. I love potty training children and the challenges that come with two to three year old children! I also worked as a nanny to a six year old child and to a nine month old. I can change babies nappies, make up babies feeds, cook simple healthy meals, read to children or help them learn to read, play with children both inside and out helping them to develop their large and fine motor skills, be kind, considerate and patient to the children in my care.

For the last four years I have helped out on a voluntary basis in my Church's toddler group. I set out and tidy away toys and equipment, I play with the children and read them stories. I also do music and movement with them using musical instruments. I talk to the parents and build up a good relationship with them.

From November 2015 - January 2017 I was a Parent reading support partners in Longlands Primary School where two of my children attend and I read with the year six children on a weekly basis.

Between February and June 2017
I have worked for Link Education in mainstream schools and nurseries looking after a cerebal palsy child in reception class and doing group work with a variety of special needs children. In day nurseries I have a nursery who asks for me by name to come back and work at their excellent French and English speaking Day Nursery.

We couldn't have asked for a better person when we needed help most! Ruth was asked to help us at very short notice and we had to leave for a wedding and she had a job interview at around the same time we needed her to be at home looking after our kids. But she managed to attend her interview and make her way back to us and did not disappoint at all. Not only are we so highly impressed - she conducted herself around the home the same way we would have done if we were around and for someone who we have never used before to be so much of valuable service to us was just very comforting and our children were well looked after and taken care of - so we are left with nothing but deep appreciation for this amazing lady who took her work so seriously that we will look no further for help as we know who to turn to when we need such assistance! Thanks ever so much for making our home yours!

Ruth looked after my daughter who is 9 months years old. My baby loved her! She came to my home and was very punctual and helped with all the different baby tasks (feeding, nappy changing, playing etc.). I very much recommend her as babysitter/childminder.

Ruth has been looking after our son who is almost 9 years old since September 2016. As both my wife and I worked in the city, we needed additional care for our child after school hours.
She has not only looked after our son but also engaged him with age-appropriate games, stories and activities, which we are very pleased with and she also keep a well documented daily reports which is great.
Ruth is caring,affectionate,polite and has lot of patience and our son has bonded well with Ruth and her daughters, who are also fond of Pari.
We thank her for all the hard work she's put in looking after Pari.
