As Owner and General Manager of College Nannies and Tutors I have the privilege of leading an amazing team of nannies and tutors who have been providing customized childcare and tutoring since 2014.
College Nannies and Tutors has been a fun and rewarding journey and I enjoy working with our families, nannies and tutors to provide role models and exceptional care and tutoring. It is extremely fulfilling to be able to help restore balance to busy families through our partnerships, and to provide opportunities to our team for personal and professional growth.
I am a University Of Nevada Las Vegas graduate as of May 2015, with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Marketing. I was born and raised in Reno, Nevada where my whole family currently resides. I moved to Las Vegas in the summer of 2013 to finish up my schooling and to pursue a marketing position. I began my position here at College Nannies + Tutors in Summerlin, Nevada as a marketing intern, and while working as an intern I began to fall in love with what this company values and their value on education. Now, as Manager of Engagement, I oversee all of marketing and networking opportunities for our business to grow and become a larger part of our Summerlin, Las Vegas and Henderson community here in Nevada.
I am the Family Placement Manager at College Nannies and Tutors| Summerlin. I was born and raised in San Francisco and moved to Las Vegas in 2001. I have been blessed with a wonderful husband and a beautiful daughter. I love dogs and have two Boston Terriers named Sarah and Jiggs and a Pug named Edgar. A few of my favorite things are spending time with my family, going on walks with my dogs, exercising, and getting my daily dose of Starbucks. I have a long history of work experience -- much of which includes an extensive background in education. With my extensive background, I have found that education is the most rewarding for me.
The one thing I look forward to most about my job is meeting and working with the families to find that perfect fit/role model for their child(ren), whether they are looking for a nanny or a tutor, and ultimately establishing a long lasting relationship with the family. I believe strongly in our core values in helping families find their role model for their child (ren)’s happiness and academic success. The best part about working for CNT is seeing and feeling the energy of the families and kids. I truly have a passion for education and strong leadership. CNT has many areas to help a very busy family and I strongly believe that it is essential for every child to have a role model. As our mission statement perfectly says, we “build stronger families” by providing a role model based on the family’s needs.
My name is Cynthia I am attending The University of Nevada Las Vegas where I will be receiving a degree in Secondary Education. I have worked and volunteered in childcare and tutoring for four years. I wanted to become a nanny because I wanted to develop my child care experiences and because I love working with creative and energetic children. I find the positive impact that I may leave in a child's life extremely rewarding. I love working with families that are open minded, kind, and comprehensive. I am a person that is energetic, creative, and a great listener; aspects of me that are liked by the children I take care of. Some of my favorite activities I like to do with children are playing outside, playing challenging but fun board games, and activities that develop children's creativity like coloring and building.
I am an experienced and dependable professional who demonstrates outstanding performance in nursing, customer service, dedication to learn and grow and leadership.
I have recently completed the Certified Nursing Assistant Program along
with the Home Health Aid Program at Professional Medical Careers Institute and received my certification from the California Board of Nursing. While completing this program, I completed an internship at Ventura Convalescent Hospital Nursing Home, a long term care facility. I provided patient care in support of the nursing staff, taking vital signs, feeding, cleaning, bathing, turning patients, and changing bed linen. At Ventura Convalescent Hospital, I was additionally responsible for the elderly and bed ridden patients including Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. I feel the combination of my education, practical experience, understanding, and care and compassion, of my patients would make me a valuable addition to your team or nurses.
I am motivated, hardworking, and a determined professional who is dedicated in providing quality patient care and offers a background of success in customer and patient focused environments that require attention to detail.
My name is Karrie. I am currently a senior at UNLV majoring in Psychology and Criminal Justice. I eventually want to get my Masters in both subjects and go on to be a Forensic Psychologist or Psychiatrist. I also enjoy watching documentaries, volunteering with local children’s groups and working with local theater companies on my free time.
I have a 3.0 GPA. I am on track to complete two Bachelors of Arts degrees by May of 2017. I went to Faith Lutheran Jr/Sr High School for both Middle School and High School. I graduated High School in 2013 with a 3.35 GPA and several academic scholarships.
I wanted to become a tutor because I enjoy helping people and making them feel more comfortable in a learning environment. I know what it feels like to need help and to get frustrated because you do not understand the information therefore if I am able to give a helping hand I would love to. I have learned through trial and error which learning styles require which teaching styles and how people tend to learn and obtain information. I have also discovered many fun and simple ways to study as well as create good study and organization habits.
I enjoy tutoring for standardized tests and well as English and Science. In Math I tutor up to Pre-Cal and and in Science up to Anatomy. For Elementary students I am capable of tutoring children in almost every level of every subject.
I enjoy being able to help people out and see the look on their faces when they finally understand something they have been struggling with.
The most rewarding part of being a tutor is seeing the look of relief on a student’s face when they finally understand something they have been struggling with. I also love the look of excitement on a students face when they finally get their grade up or get the grade they have been working towards.
Students like best about me is how dedicated I am to their learning and their success. They also enjoy my adaptability and how I can teach using several different methods in order for them to understand. I am also very patient and understanding when it comes to teaching.
How I get the students excited about learning is typically we get excited by playing learning games or turning learning into a fun game or adventure. Many times I use analogies, stories and flash cards/games to get my teaching across.
My name is Robert I’m currently a senior at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. I plan on double-majoring in mathematics and education. I grew up in Pahrump, which is a tiny little place an hour’s drive from Las Vegas.
I have three siblings in Pahrump; one younger brother and two younger sisters. I’ve had an affinity for math since I was young, so my mother who was not very good at math pushed me in the direction of math. As the oldest, I also tutored my younger siblings with homework, most often in math. But I didn’t mind because I like math. Math has clear-cut reasons and rules for everything. The trick is to remember those rules and details moving forward.
I became a tutor simply to practice teaching. In the future, I plan on being a math teacher. If I cannot teach someone one-on-one, then teaching a whole class will certainly be a problem. The best part about being a tutor is the opportunity to work one-on-one with a student to truly help them understand. This ideal situation coincidentally makes it easy to see the moment when their face brightens up as they grasp an idea, which is probably the most rewarding part of tutoring.
I like to show students that math is not so bad and that anyone can learn math. I’m often told that I clearly explain things step-by-step, which really helps. I’ve also been told that my jokes are pretty bad sometimes, but people bear with it and learn a lot.
