Introduction to families
Hello. I recently graduated with my Honours in Applied Psychology. I intend on studying further, but I have chosen to take this year as a break away from my studies. I have known studying and learning my whole life, and I would like a change of scenery for a while. I have a great amount of experience in a variety of child-related spheres. I have been a tutor for 4yrs, an au pair for 3yrs, and I have also done ad hoc school facilitation, for students with learning difficulties, for the past 3yrs. During COVID-19, I also started home schooling. For the past 6 months, I have also been a volunteer lay counsellor at an NPO called LifeLine where I offer free counselling to individuals from all walks of life. I would prefer a position that requires more tutoring/home school assistance, but I am not too picky. I am happiest when I am helping children learn than merely being a form of transportation. Thank you!
I do believe I have the necessary experience and qualifications to be a wonderful au pair. I am very soft-hearted and calm. I pride myself on my ability to be extremely patient in any circumstance. As an individual who has excelled academically from primary school all the way through to my Honours, I know the level of effort, dedication, persistence, and resilience that is needed to achieve. I like to use this to assist children in achieving their best, academically, and also to remind myself to give of my best to these children.
I am a huge animal fanatic - especially horses and dogs. I love being around animals 24.7. I love outdoor activities or anything hands-on. I am also an avid sports/fitness person, and I spend about 5-6 days a week exercising. In my spare time, I enjoy doing crossword puzzles, drawing, journaling, spending time with my friends & family and catching up on my favourite TV shows.

Chelsea was very patient with Emily, encouraging Emily to remember tricks that she had been taught previously. Thulani relates with her very well. He enjoys his lessons.
