During my time as a tutor, I have worked with students of various ages and academic levels. I have provided one-on-one or tutoring sessions tailored to the specific needs of each student. My main goal as a tutor is to help students understand and master challenging concepts, improve their study skills, and boost their confidence in the subject matter. I have tutored ages 5,8,10,12. I have 3 years of tutoring experience. I believe in creating a supportive and encouraging learning environment where students feel comfortable asking questions and seeking clarification. Throughout my tutoring experience, I have witnessed significant improvement in students' academic performance, confidence, and overall motivation to learn. It is incredibly rewarding to see students overcome challenges, grasp difficult concepts, and achieve their academic goals.

Introduction to families
Dear Family, I would like to introduce myself to you and let you know a little about me so that you will understand why I would be a good choice to have working for you and your family. I live in Gallo Manor, Sandton and have lived here for the last 15 years. I matriculated in 2013 at Crawford College Lonehill. In 2014 I completed my first aid certification and thereafter studied to be a basic life support paramedic. In 2015 I started studying a Bachelor of Education at the University of Pretoria, and graduated in 2019. `I love to learn new things and further my education and I am currently studying Project Management and a few other childcare related courses. I am part of a very close family. My family is important to me for different reasons. First, it is the place where I belong to. Literally, at the end of the day, I return to my home where my family lives. My family consists of my mom, dad, sister, grandmother and two older step siblings from my father’s side. Family is the most important thing to me, and I am so grateful for them. I consider myself as an open-minded, hard-working, easy-going, dedicated, trustworthy, helpful, patient, and responsible person. I am also a friendly and enthusiastic individual who loves working with children. I have always been drawn to helping others, and being an au pair allows me to combine my nurturing nature with my desire to explore different cultures. I have experience working as a babysitter, Tutor, Aupair and Home school teacher, where I gained valuable skills in child care and building strong relationships with children. I am excited about the opportunity to become an au pair and make a positive impact on a family's life while immersing myself in a new cultural experience. I have always enjoyed being around kids and find it incredibly rewarding to be a positive influence in their lives. I have helped with children’s daily routines, engaged with them in educational activities, and created a nurturing and fun environment. I have a strong understanding of child development and enjoy creating engaging and educational activities. I have also completed courses in first aid, CPR, and Basic Life Support to ensure the safety and well-being of the children under my care. I have valuable skills in communication, problem-solving, and creating a positive and inclusive environment for children. I am excited to have the opportunity to care for your children and help out around the house. I believe that I can provide a loving and nurturing environment for your children, and I look forward to becoming a part of your family. Yours Sincerely, Ashleigh
You should choose me as an au pair because you can absolutely rely on me. I am faithful and helpful. And I am a person who loves working with children and I perform my work with great dedication, commitment, and ambition. Due the fact that I worked the with children I feel confident and secure in dealing with them. Another positive aspect through my work is that I am subjected to different kinds of personalities. I know how important it is to provide children with individual attention and I am happy to spend that time with them. The safety and well-being of the children is my priority and I have the necessary skills to keep children safe, having experience in first aid, CPR, and basic life support training. I have a good combination of work experience with children so it would be no problem for me to help children to reach their full potential. I think varied activities are very important for children. I am an active and creative person who is always motivated and helpful. Even in all kinds of situations I am patient and cordially. Two of my strengths are that I am open-minded and adaptable. That is another reason why I would be a good aupair because I can accustom myself very fast in new situations. I am adequate to the task to be an au pair because I am mature and reliable. While I have developed a level of expertise in organization & time management, managing schedules and providing homework support, there is so much more I want to explore and learn. I believe my skills and work experience are ideal for this position and that I can truly be an asset to you and your family. Through my Teaching Degree, I have necessary experience on planning and implementing child care activities that are both fun and educational. My 5-6 years of experience has taught me how to create a good relaxed environment in which children can grow and thrive. I have a flexible work schedule so I can be available when needed. As an Au Pair, I have had the opportunity to work with children of all ages and abilities. I am patient, reliable and trustworthy. I have experience in taking care of the children's daily needs, homework, educational support, transportation, household duties, lesson planning, communication, adaptability, organization and time management. Over the years I have developed multiple skills and abilities to help me perform my duties as an AuPair. I have also learned to be calm under stressful situations.
Hobbies are a good way of spending time. It makes a person productive and stimulates growth. My favourite hobbies are Sports and Fitness such as going to the gym, swimming or just enjoying the outdoors. For me being outdoors is not only enjoyable but also beneficial for physical and mental well-being. I love being in a go-kart, on a quad bike or simply just enjoying nature. I love to cook and explore new recipes as well as one of my favorite hobbies is travelling because I love discovering new cities and places around the world. I also love spending time with my family and friends and enjoying the simple pleasure’s that life has to offer.
