Hi, my name is Catherine and I am the Nanny Program Coordinator at College Nannies + Tutors of Summit, NJ. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Connecticut in Sociology and Human Development and Family Studies. While in college, I worked at a day care both in the classroom and in the office and was involved in numerous leadership positions on campus. Today, I am fortunate enough to pair together my childcare experience and leadership skills to do the same for College Nannies + Tutors. I work behind the scenes in the office and as a nanny for some of our wonderful families. I truly believe in the mission of Building Stronger Families® and am currently pursuing my master's degree in School Counseling at Montclair State University.
Hi!! My name is Jaclyn Lepore (I normally go by Jackie). I am 22 years old and am currently a student at Kean University with an Early Childhood Elementary Education major with a minor in English Writing in hopes of soon becoming a second grade teacher. A couple of thing about me I love animals! My dog is the best and I could play with dogs all day. Also, I love music and going to concerts is a summer time favorite! I love to be outside. Playing sports outside is definitely something I love to do while I'm babysitting. I've had about 7 years of child care experience between being a camp counselor, to babysitting, to working in an elementary school as an aide. I realized a long time ago that taking care of children is what u love to do! I can't wait to continue on with more experiences with children to better myself as a future teacher.
Hi, I'm Olephia Williams and I am 30 years old. I was born in Jamaica and permanently moved to the United States at the age of ten. While attending school, I've studied various areas of the Health field and Criminal Justice. I like to stay active in all type of sports. I'm creative and self motivated. I'm a married woman and I am also a proud mother of a 3 old baby boy. I've work with newborns to the ages of adolescents to grow positively within themselves and others. The same passion and drive I have for my own child is the same I have for the child or children that are in my care. I'm organized, clean, efficient, punctual, and a respectful nanny.
Suzanne has had a 30-year career as a language school director and then a corporate trainer of ESL, Business English and French. A Millburn High School honor student herself, she settled in New Providence where she raised her own three honor students. Not only them but their friends were fostered to use proper grammar and rich vocabulary when in her home or car!
That’s when Suzanne’s love of tutoring verbal skills began: she was asked by other parents to tutor their college-bound children, which she continues to do with creativity, patience, and humor. By teaching the tips and tricks of test taking in addition to reading, writing, and reasoning skills, Suzanne has coached many students to achieve their personal best scores and to gain acceptance into their top-pick colleges.
