Hello, my name is Alison and I am the General Manager at College Nannies + Tutors in Summit Livingston, Basking Ridge & Morris Plains, NJ. I received my Undergraduate degree from Muhlenberg College in Business Administration concentrating on Marketing & Finance, and my Masters degree in Media Studies from The New School. For the past ten years, I worked in New York City in the Media industry within various financial roles.
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.
I try to be the softest, most kind person I can be. Children are very innocent and easily impressionable, so I try to show them as much kindness and patience as I can. I am very big on honesty and fairness. For example: I babysat a brother and sister, and the brother would sometimes torment his younger sister. Instead of getting angry, I would ask the brother to explain why he treated his sister like that, often reaching a point where he hears how unfair he was and he apologizes. Siblings fight, and I understand that it's somewhat natural, but reminding them to treat each other kindly and fairly is very important to me. I am very much a mediator when it comes to my role while babysitting. I try to be their friend as much as I am their babysitter. I make them forts, watch their favorite movies, and play with them, always being sure that they are having fun. I've never been the kind of babysitter who sends the kids off so that I can play on my phone. I have a younger sister, and I never let her out of my sight, growing up. Children are people, too, and they deserve attention and happiness.
I am currently a Junior at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. majoring in mathematics and minoring in philosophy. At Georgetown, I work about 15 to 20 hours a week tutoring Calculus I, II, and III, Linear Algebra, and Ordinary Differential Equations. I am also a member of Georgetown's club soccer team and work as a part-time musician in D.C.
I live in Summit, New Jersey and graduated from Summit High School in 2012. I graduated Summa Cum Laude, played 4 years of varsity soccer and also served as co-captain of the varsity soccer team my senior year. I was also fortunate enough to be a member of the 2010 State Championship lacrosse team at Summit my sophomore year.
With experience in academics, athletics, and leadership positions associated with both, I look forward to working with you in order to achieve whatever academic goals you have in mind!
Aside from tutoring, I genuinely enjoy hanging out with kids and giving them the opportunity to better themselves. I am heading into my senior year at the University of Pennsylvania majoring in Economics. I am the philanthropy chair of my fraternity at school, and helped found the DREAM mentorship program, which pairs Upenn students with struggling, low-income elementary school and middle school students in West Philadelphia. Before college, I did a great deal of volunteer work at the local elementary schools, being named a "Peer Leader" by our high school's social workers. Aside from philanthropy, I was the captain of my soccer team in high school, and director of the school's comedic production, "Friday Night Live."
