I tutored a Grade 1 girl for a while and I really enjoyed it. I have also work at Midstream college aftercare and at the baby house I have a lot of experience at different schools including Tomorrows people college, so I have experience with remedial learners. In 2021 I au-paired 2 year old twin girls, so I have experience as an au-pair.

I would make the perfect Au pair because I am good with children and it is my passion to work with children. Since I study through UNISA, I can adapt my study schedule around your child. I have been working as an Au pair since 2021, and I am still currently an Au pair for a family I have been with since 2022. I have years of experience in childcare, and I have my own teaching resources that I can use for educational play.
I enjoy art, I paint, and I am creative. I also enjoy baking and being outdoors. I crochet and sell crochet items for extra money. I enjoy making teaching resources and designing lessons.

Drive the children to their various extra mural activities and from school. I developed many educational activities and play to help in their development. I helped with teaching them home chores and with school work. I focused a lot on educational and developmental play for the youngest daughter. Creating fun lessons that aided in her development, she enjoyed these lessons a great deal.

Melissa is the most devoted, responsible, aupair we have known. She gives my girls love and attention. She is punctual, mature, and loyal. Melissa never arrives to our home empty handed and always has ideas of ways to engage with my girls in a fun way. She has been essentially home-schooling my youngest daughter for the past two years and our youngest has now started preschool with confience and excitement. Melissa has handled my older daughters transition to big school and is more than competent helping with homework as well and helping her practice for speeches and any other projects she has to complete.
