As franchise owner of College Nannies and Tutors, together with our great team, we have been providing customized childcare and tutoring since November 2004. Our 12 year old son and 10 year old daughter are regular recipients of our terrific nannies for date nights and our role model tutors for varying school support needs.
College Nannies and Tutors has been a terrific adventure and I enjoy working with our families, nannies and tutors to provide role models and exceptional care and tutoring. I enjoy meeting new families through our partnerships, and I learn daily from our staff, nannies and tutors.
My name is Allison and I am the Director of Services for multiple CNT locations. I graduated from North Central University in Minneapolis with a degree in Intercultural Studies and Teaching English as a Foreign Language. I began at CNT while in college working as a tutor and a nanny. Since then, I have held a variety of roles with the company including SES/NCLB Coordinator and Learning Center Manager. In my free time I enjoy volunteering at my local church, reading, playing piano, and traveling. I love working with families to see students reach their goals as well as help nannies and tutors build valuable experience for their future careers.
Lara joined the College Nannies + Tutors team in March of 2010. She currently manages the On-call Nanny Division for the Sherman Oaks & Woodland Hills offices - in addition to working for a handful of families as their personal nanny & tutor. Lara can assist you in staffing a role model nanny for that next date night, day off from school or any other big or small occasion. Lara grew up in Overland Park, KS and upon graduating high school moved to Lawrence to attend the University of Kansas (Rock, Chalk, Jayhawk!) where she obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and Theatre with Honors. Throughout college she was a nanny for a very special family, where the son and daughter ended up being the ring bearer and flower girl in her wedding. After graduating college, Lara moved to Los Angeles and began working at a large studio preschool with infants through pre-K children. She has also tutored children from kindergarten through 12th grade from a variety of backgrounds (low-income, public, private, Catholic, special needs, honors) in numerous subjects. She loves working with this company - helping to Build Stronger Families in the Los Angeles area.
I joined the College Nannies and Tutors of Del Mar team in June 2014 and serve as the Respite and Recruitment Manager. With a strong desire to make a difference in the lives of children and families, I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Sociology and Master's Degree in Public Policy and Administration from CSU, Long Beach. Professionally, I have worked for the school district with grades K-5, then transitioned to nonprofit higher education, credentialing programs, and government roles. In my free time, I try to stay active and take advantage of the wonderful city I live in. My favorite activities include rockclimbing, hiking, yoga, and a new addition - mountain biking.
At College Nannies and Tutors I work as the Nanny Placement Manager for our Seattle, Bellevue, and Redmond families. As the oldest of four daughters, family has always been the most important thing in my life. My final decision to attend the University of Washington allowed me to pursue my educational goals while maintaining a close relationship with my family. It also allowed me to continue to focus on my love for dance. I have been a Scottish Highland Dancer for over 20 years and am a certified instructor. In early 2014, I was given the opportunity to serve as President of the Seattle Highland Dance Association. In an effort to share my passion for Highland dance with others, my next goal is to pursue my judge's certification through Scotland and open a studio in the Seattle area.
From a career perspective, my experience working with families began when I was a teenager working as a babysitter in my neighborhood. I was quickly recruited to be a part time nanny for a family which I stayed with for five years. Ten years later, I am now a tutor for their three boys. Additionally, towards the end of university, I worked as Director of a tutoring center in the Snoqualmie area where I was first introduced to the idea of working with children and families on a professional level. After completing my college degree and working a short stint in IT sales, I knew my heart belonged back in a setting where I could continue to work with families.
Katherine is a burst of positive energy that can bring joy to any child and home. She has worked with all ages for 10+ years, including nannying newborns to school aged-children, coaching dance/physical activities to teenagers, caring for children and adults with special needs, and instructing aqua classes to seniors. She is a natural born caregiver and people person, which is instantly apparent.
Joy genuinely enjoys caring for children and brightening their day. She is full of energy and loves being playful. She's always on time, doesn't cancel and is extremely dependable. Families love her and fully trust her.
I am honest and dependable. I am also very patient. I am the oldest child of my family with three younger siblings and I help them with their homework and explain concepts easily and thoroughly. A Mercer Island High School graduate, Eric tutors Elementary and Middle School Math, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and II, Geometry, Trig, Calculus, Chemistry, and Physics.
