Presently I am seeking a part-time position in education to continue my dedication to encouraging learning, and because I greatly enjoy working with both with children and adults.
I have assisted adults with essay writing, school applications, organization, etc.
Recently, I worked as an after-school nanny with two children (now ages 7 & 11) for three years. I assisted them with homework, especially math because that is my best subject and they requested help. Other teaching positions I have had include:
Future Stars, Art Teacher, White Plains, NY, (2004)
Brooklyn Art Program, Assistant Teacher which included art and homework help, Brooklyn, NY (2003)
School of the Future, team taught a class Stand in the Place, to all ages, Brooklyn, NY (2010)
In addition, I was a camp counselor for Elementary aged girls Summer Trails Day Camp (1995-2001)
I lead children to figure out as much as possible on their own, getting them to do any "challenging" work along with me and then on their own "without training wheels". I am aware of the child's experience and needs from my work as a nanny. I am very patient with youth and can work with both introverted and outgoing children.
I am in my early 30s, have two BAs (Visual Art & Sociology) and an MA (Contemporary Art History, Criticism & Theory) and have attached my resume. I can offer my enthusiasm, gentleness, creativity, great organizational skills, love of service and high expectations.
I look forward to speaking with you about this position. Excellent references upon request.
