Hello! My name is Melissa Smith. I am delighted to have the opportunity to teach your child! I am an elementary school teacher with a Bachelor of Arts degree in elementary education and also certified in early childhood education. I have taught 3 years in STEM classrooms teaching 3rd and 4th grade as well as general education from K5 to 4th grade. I love teaching a variety of subjects and have over 10 years of experience with children. I have worked in multiple facets of education including public, private, and charter schools as well as in private day-cares. I am very dedicated to providing a hands-on learning experience that will nurture your child’s love for learning. My teaching style is kinesthetic and will provide engaging lessons that will foster inquiry and mastery. Please feel free to send me any questions you have and I look forward to having you in the classroom!

Kevin Khamneipur

Hello there! My name is Kevin and I’ve been in pet care for a few years. I’m brand new to NYC and I’m looking forward to sitting/walking your pets, and exploring the city while doing so!

Dylan Patrick

I’ve taught since high school, helping out friends with writing assignments and essays, and my enjoyment of teaching has only grown as I’ve tutored dozens of students for their SATS, ACTS, and standardized tests. I like to try to get to know my students, their individual learning styles and needs, what they’re looking to do in the future, and how I can help them to achieve those goals!

Application:

Each new referral sends in a resume and coverletter and then completes an in-depth application form outlining their experience and qualifications.

Interviews:

Successful candidates will then be invited in for an in-person interview which gives us the opportunity to connect with them as individuals

Background Checks:

We carry out background checks through the national criminal databases, sex offenders and terrorist lists, review of DMV records, SSN validation and review of previous addresses

References:

Multiple references provided by the sitter are then reviewed to confirm previous experience along with social media checks

Orientation:

Our service providers must all attend an in-person orientation depending on the service they are providing so that we can ensure a standard of care

Ongoing Trainings:

We provide ongoing trainings through our platform as well as in person to ensure our service providers are knowledgeable and skilled in the field of care they provide.
