Hi, I'm an actress which means my work is often seasonal and there are often periods of time where I become free. I've had to make my life quite flexible for acting so am often available at short notice.
I've worked with children with special needs in many different capacities. I've nannied a teen with Down Syndrome, cared for children and teens with Asperger's and Autism, tutored and minded children with learning difficulties and ADHD, babysat children with extreme allergies and have looked after my own cousin who is developmentally challenged many times.
I have been babysitting and nannying for decades - the eldest of 5 children, the youngest being 11, I've been babysitting from quite a young age. I love children and like to actively engage with those I am minding. You will never find me putting a child in front of the television. I have some knowledge of child psychology having studied some education at university, am a performer so have an active imagination that children love and have a natural affinity and ability with children. I've looked after children of all ages, with varying needs including those with extreme allergies, autism, ADHD, Down Syndrome, learning difficulties and more. I have worked with children in varying capacities including tutoring, child minding, live in nannying, directing, performing to and with, teaching, leading group activities... the list goes on and on.
I have tutored a handful of children with home work and exam preparation for maths, English and science and have been an acting and vocal coach on set and in a classroom setting so would be able to tutor or help prepare for auditions easily.
