My name is Karina, I'm 30 years old. I'm from Chile, I speak Spanish (Native), English (Intermediate), Portuguese (Intermediate).
I'm the oldest from a family of 4 girls. Since my younger age, I was helping my mother to look after my sisters and cousins.
I've also worked as a babysitter in Chile, Brazil and most recently in the UK. I was working with kids from 1 year old to 12 years old.
I’ve been babysitting since I was 11. During this time and take enough experience I carried out childcare at home and outside, helping with homework, animation (games, activities). I’ve kept kids from 1 to 12. I love the kids, play with them and take care of them. I will be able to accompany children in their leisure time, help with homework, manage meals, baths, naps, and bedrooms, help with household chores (dishes, laundry, cleaning). If you like, I will also be able to teach your children phrases in the Spanish language.
My true love is working with children. I excel at remaining calm and composed in challenging situations while demonstrating superb active listening, organization, and communication talents. Additionally, I have complementary experience as I mention
previously provided overarching support with various household responsibilities, including cooking, cleaning, errand-running, and transportation.
I am eager to accept a new opportunity and make a positive difference in your children’s lives.

2019 Housekeeper, Paddington, London.
I had the opportunity to work with a British family with two wonderful children of 4 and 7 years with whom I lived for a period of 4 months. I had the chance to share pleasant moments, such as having fun activities (going to the park, movies, having lessons of dance and singing, etc..), teaching them about my culture and the importance to learn from others and also teaching them Spanish. During my time, I've performed tasks such as housekeeper, babysitter, maintain order in common areas, cooking diner and learn to the children the discipline in terms of schedules and studies.
