Elyssa's Description

I am currently seeking a job as a baby sitter to successfully mirror my studies at university, as I am currently enrolled in a Bachelor of Primary Education at the University of Sydney. After completing a work experience course at the local daycare centre in Greystanes in April this year as a part of my University course requirements, I rediscovered my passion for babysitting. Before my job at the Outback Steakhouse in Wentworthville, I was a dance teacher at Dance Xpressions, Giraween, where I managed and instructed around 20 children ages 3-10 per class in various styles of dance in a positive, fun and friendly environment. Although having to resign after 6 months due to a back injury (herniated disc), this job allowed me to develop skills such as being able to connect to children, entertain them successfully, be responsible, use my creative side to occupy the children, develop patience and allowed me to be firm and authoritative, whilst still remaining friendly to students when they would not work in compliance to me. I personally believe I am great with kids as I am the opposite of intimidating, quite comforting, I can easily relate to children, and I have great time management, will stick to your schedule and will not be too lenient when it comes to allowing children to participate in activities that are not in accordance with your plan (unless instructed otherwise). I also used to baby sit for my neighbour, Rachel, at ages 14-16 in Merrylands and her two children Olivia (8) and Shanice (6), and I can provide her details if you would like to use her as a reference. In addition to this, I was also a peer support leader in years 10-12 for the new year 7's in high school. My university timetable is also changing in 3 weeks so my availability should be a lot better.
