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 Sarah I was born in Harlingen Texas.
I am one of eight children, 3 sisters and 4 brothers.
Mother to two children Abigail 30 and Abraham 27.
I am a Grammy to two beautiful grandchildren Payton 5 and Nolan 4.
I have worked in various types of jobs. I have worked as a Medical Receptionist in the Medical field and also as an EKG Tech. After ten years of working in this field I changed my career choice to a Flight Attendant for an Airline that flies small airplanes and by traveling all over the U.S. it gave me the opportunity to meet people from all over the world. As as Flight Attendant we wore many hats while on duty. Having children on board our air crafts always brought joy to me. Their curiosity always made it fun especially as they are getting ready to say goodbye once we've arrived to our destination... a picture with the Pilots is one exciting thing they look forward to as well as receiving a pair of wings. In our long flights we provided coloring books and games and their favorite snack cookies or peanuts. Speaking of peanuts, there were times when a parent would bring to our attention that their child has a peanut allergy so this would mean that as Flight Attendants we made sure no one would open a pack of peanuts. After 7 years of flying I decided to stay on the ground as I am still working in the Airline Industry but am now working at the airport as a Customer Service Agent at McCarran airport providing service to passengers whom are traveling out and as they stop at the ticket counter to check their bags allows me to meet people all day every day.
Having the opportunity to care for children brings great joy to me and by doing this I feel in my heart that I am giving back by demonstrating the life experiences I have had the pleasure in caring as a Mother and Grammy with my children grandchildren and to people I have met along my journey as a professional.
My name is Kayla and I am a sophomore pursuing a Special Education degree at UNLV. I started babysitting as early as my freshman year of high school and have loved it ever since. I want to be a nanny because I have such a love for seeing children grow and progress with their accomplishments, which is the most rewarding part of childcare in my opinion. My days typically consist of arts and crafts, board games, reading, and playing all sorts of outside games with the kids I care for and I love doing them all. What the kids tend to like about me is that I'm willing to try all varieties of new games and activities and can always come up with new crafts to do. I put my all into every child I care for and believe in giving everyone included the best experience possible.
My name is Melanie Tomita-Cadavona. I am a first year undergraduate student at UNLV. My hobbies consist of reading, spending quality time with my family, watching movies, baking, and learning something new every day. I graduated from Maui High School in Spring 2014 with a 4.0 GPA with honors. I am currently a freshman, soon-to-be sophomore, at UNLV. I am a dual major in English and Secondary Education.
I specialize in tutoring Reading, Writing, and Math (up to Algebra II). I particularly enjoy tutoring Reading and Writing the most. The best part about being a tutor is being able to share my knowledge with a subject I am passionate about with another individual who may not grasp the subject as well as I have. I love the thought and action of helping others and, to me, being a tutor allows me to show my greatest potential as well as help students fulfill theirs. The most rewarding part of my job is being an eye witness to development and change, in a positive light. There is no greater feeling when I am tutoring than when I see a student understand a concept they have struggled with prior to getting help.
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.
