Hi, my name is Maria.
I am caring, responsible, professional and absolutely love working with children.
I recently finished studying Psychology back in my home town: Buenos Aires, Argentina, from which I obtained my bachelor degree. I've specialised on children and teenagers since I'm looking forward to working with them and completely enjoy being around them.
I have been working with children for the last 5 years:
- I've done a year teaching english and helping with homework and general house duties for a family's 3 year old son, and 7 year old daughter.
-I've worked with a PDD 10 year old girl, lately diagnosed as a probable case of childhood psychosis, 3 days a week, working mainly on social skills, but also helping with homework and weekly activities such as assisting to catholic classes, park activities, museums, etc.
-The last two years Ive been working at a special needs school in Buenos Aires called CEA, with 4 children aged 6, 7, 10 and 11, as a school teacher. My students had different diagnoses: aspergers, autism, PDD, bipolar, childhood psychosis. We worked mostly on social skills, everyday rules and norms, reading and writing, and basic maths.
I am deeply passionate about children. I adore the non judgmental mind they have and the enormous capacity to learn and also to teach adults in so many ways.
I enjoy playing with them, and making every type of fun activities that you can possible imagine. I am really easy going and funny around children. Im also a professional when it comes to responsibilities and rules. I would be happy to get the opportunity to care for your children. I would gladly help with house duties, children's homework, outdoor after school activities, and possibly anything else that is needed.
I have a international drivings license and a car available if needed. As I'm from Argentina my original language is Spanish, but have fluent English, as Ive done my primary and secondary at St. George's College, a British school in Buenos Aires.
Hopefully I'll be hearing from you soon! Kind regards, Maria
