Filipino-American Teenage Babysitter/English tutor
From: Geneva, switzerland
About my service
My name is Patricia. I'm an 18-year-old student from California and I've been living in Geneva for almost 5 years. I can speak a bit of Tagalog and French but the only language I speak fluently is English.
My mother works as a teacher for primary school kids and I've always been surrounded by advice on how to work with children. I treat my kids like friends and my service is seen more like a playdate than being on watch duty. I provide books to read and sometimes even supplies to bake with the kids. I also work as an English tutor for international families whose kids are enrolled in the Swiss public schools.
I worked regularly with three other families with kids aged between 2-6 as an English tutor/babysitter/nanny, and was a primary after-school supervisor at the British School of Geneva.
