Hello. I just recently returned to Canada from the UK, where I was living abroad with my husband. We are in the process of moving to Halifax so I am currently available for part time or occasional help until we are fully settled, after which time I could take on a more stable position. I am currently working in the mornings as an online ESL teacher, working with children 3-12 years in China. I have 7 years professional childcare experience with infants to 12 year olds, including twins. I also have experience teaching dance, yoga and theatre and volunteering with children with special needs. I have a BFA in Art History, performance background and am interested in dance therapy, child development and mental health. I love engaging with children, playing, reading and being creative.

Currently teaching English as a Second Language online in the early mornings to children in China, aged 3-12. I have a great deal of experience working with children of all ages, especially young children (newborn-6 years). I have worked for 5 families in the Montreal area with children aged newborn-12 (including twin infants, who are now 6 yrs old) and have continued to maintain strong relationships with the children, even at a distance. In addition to this I have worked as a travel nanny for a family in NYC. I have experience working with children from different cultural backgrounds, including French and Finnish speaking, with whom I have helped to develop their English. I also have volunteer experience with children with special needs (primarily with autism and Down's syndrome) and am comfortable adapting to each child's unique needs. Prior to relocating to the UK, I taught ESL for a company named Langmobile at various after school programs in primary schools in Montreal, as well as at their annual summer camp. In addition to this, I facilitated dance and yoga classes to daycare children for the same company. I have professional training in dance and theatre and am currently completing a 200-hour yoga teacher training, which includes trauma awareness. I am passionate about incorporating my love of art, movement and wellbeing into my work with children. I also love to read and encouraging literacy in children.
