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 Jillian I am currently a nursing major with an interest to continue onto DPN school. I have a particular interest in trauma medicine. I have taken many psychology and biology courses that have further helped me understand milestones for children. I enjoy working with children. I feel it allows you to "re-live" as a child and escape the everyday stress. I love working with children who enjoy activities and playing together. I love to take the kids outside, play board games and do arts and crafts. I feel this allows them to use their imagination along with stimulating their brain. I also enjoy teaching them new things.
My name is Nicole, I am currently attending the Nevada State College and have recently been accepted in the Speech Pathology program. I have been working with children since I was in high school, baby-sitting for neighbors in my complex. While attending the University of Nevada Las Vegas I worked at the UNLV/CSN daycare. At this daycare I was able to work many different age groups as well as receive training in childcare. The daycare allowed me to interact with different families, many whom I would continue to work with for many years. I originally started working as a nanny because it was an easy job to have while going to school. However, later I realized that I enjoy working with children. I love listening to their world and how they experience it. I enjoy when I get to be there when they learn something new; to see that light that goes off in their eyes. I do not believe there is a typical day when you work with children, especially in the setting of childcare. Each child is different and will respond differently to different activities and people. I like to work with families that enjoy the type of care I give and allow me to express my creativity. I do enjoy doing arts and crafts and science experiments (vinegar volcanos, corn starch and water) with children. I really enjoy talking with children, it is amazing some of the things that a child can say and think. One of the things that children enjoy most about me is that I can be a big kid. I like to get messy, love face painting and have no problem with a child decorating my face. I also believe the fact that children see me as a big kid, but parents find me a trustworthy and responsible person makes me a special caregiver.
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.

I wanted to become a tutor because several of my peers had previously stated that I would make a good teacher. I thought about it and also figured I would enjoy tutoring as well. I have tutored my peers and younger, The best part of being a tutor is the pride associated with teaching something to someone. The sharing of knowledge is good for those being taught, society, and it feels good to be able to do it. I also teach a class of martial arts which consist of adults, children and children with disabilities.
My students that I tutor like the way I explain things very well. I get my students excited about learning by showing a passion for the subject being taught. If the teacher finds the material interesting so will the student.
