Hi I am a mature woman with many years of nanny experience, in New Zealand and overseas. I also have a daughter who is now 27, living in Sydney. I love dogs and polite cats! I have lots of experience (and success stories, references available) in supporting children with their homework (not doing it for them!) and helping them become independent young people ready to take on the world. I cook delicious, nutritious nourishing meals (one meal for the whole family) and happily prepare healthy lunch boxes for school. I won't do anyone's housework, as I have my own house to clean and keep tidy, but will happily fold washing if time permits. I love to read to children and assist them with their reading or play games to assist with their reading and comprehension. I am a compulsive reader myself plus a writer. I don't let children waste time on television or computers in an afternoon unless homework is completed on the computer, but I supervise carefully to make sure homework only is being completed. I don't tolerate rudeness, lack of respect or bad manners from children (big or small)!

I love to assist with reading and comprehension... and reading to children. My own daughter has a BA in English Literature and I am a writer. I am a Massage Therapist/Reiki practitioner with my own corporate and private clients. I am interested in food, nutrition and cooking as I come from a Croatian family of great cooks. I have been a teacher aide for a child with severe special needs and spent many years doing reading recovery and reading with children in primary school.
