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 and I live in Las Vegas, Nevada, in the Summerlin area. I have various Associates Degrees in Education and Business. I have extensive experience in childcare ranging from numerous jobs and also education. I have worked my way up from a babysitter to working in the management of childcare company’s staffing events across the country. I have managed on site childcare events for years now and have experience with all different ages. Some of my hobbies are reading, making jewelry, sewing, trying and making new food, and spending time with friends and family. I love to experience and see new things.
I love children and am focused on being a positive influence on children and anyone I come in contact with lives. I love being around kids and seeing them grow and develop. Seeing them learn new things really makes me happy.
Some of my favorite activities to do with kids are reading and/or writing stories, playing board or card games, singing songs, making up games, and teaching them new things, as well as them teaching me new things.
I believe what sets me apart from other nannies/babysitters is my belief in doing the right thing. I don’t cut corners or do things I don’t think is right. This attention to detail and strong moral base really give me full confidence that I can be a great influence in any child’s life. I also pride myself on being able to really connect with a family. I want to be close to the children and the family because I believe this is really important and will help me be a better care giver.
My name is Connie...
I have been involved in childcare for over 20 years. During most of that time I have been a nanny.
I began working with children in my own home daycare, (1980-1985) when I pursued certification in early child development and went on to obtain certification as a Primary Childcare Provider. That certification taught me how to plan a child’s day and activities that were for each age and also taught me the laws surrounding daycare. It also enabled me to run my own daycare out of my home.
Once my child was in school I spent time working for daycare centers and even for social services as a childcare provider, (1985-1990).
I was very dissatisfied with the quality of care these places offered and so I began to look for a better way to provide the sort of care that would nurture a child physically and emotionally.
Beginning in 1990 I began working as a nanny and did that until the present, except for a short break working as a teacher‘s aide in a Montessori school. During this time I received a diploma as a teacher’s aide completely my knowledge of a child’s developmental stages through their school years.
I enjoy being around children because of the great energy they have. They are never predictable, and I love the challenge to be one step ahead of them. Because life with a child can be unpredictable from moment to moment I like having to be resourceful in dealing with changes, moods, and plans. They are great conversationalist even when they can’t put words together yet!
My name is Christina and I'm a born and raised Las Vegas native. I'm the mother of two boys. I have been a high school math and science tutor for 4 years. I am actively pursing my Clark County School District teaching license,
I am currently pursuing my bachelors in education with a focus in mathematics.
I wanted to become a tutor at first to earn some extra money and teach something that I was good at. It quickly became a passion of mine as I saw the excitement in my students as they saw their grades improve and gained confidence in their ability to do math. This motivated me to return to school to become a teacher.
I specialize in high school math and science, such as chemistry, physics, and biology.
When I hear a student of mine say "I get it now" that is the best part of being a tutor to hear those words.
The most rewarding part of my job is hearing my students tell me they couldn't have gotten to where they were without my help is beyond heartwarming. Because they will always look at me as a support system and that is worth every moment I spent with them, helping them to succeed.
My name is Natalie I am currently majoring in Philosophy at University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I went to high school at Horace Mann School in New York City, attended Boston University for the first year and a half of my college tuition, and then transferred to UNLV in Spring of 2016.
I wanted to become a tutor because I want to share my love of learning and the knowledge I’ve acquired in both academic and extracurricular settings. I specialize in ACT tutoring, as well as tutoring in English, Physics, and Math. I love helping students find new ways to look at challenging subjects and I love seeing the excitement in students when they understand something new.
I think that every student sees each subject differently, and each aspect of the learning process should be catered to the student’s individual perspective. When we find a way to approach a more difficult subject that focuses on the student’s strengths, learning becomes much more enjoyable.
