Babysitter – College Ave – near Tufts

We live right near Tufts (on College Ave between Powderhouse and Davis) and are hoping to find a babysitter for date nights. We would also love to find some local students that would be interested in watching our son in the early evenings and when we occasionally get stuck working late.

Our son recently turned one, and is super curious about the world. He loves music, walking and bath time.

We’d love to meet some responsible students in the area that would be interested in last minute babysitting opportunities, as we don’t have any family in town to help out when our schedules get crazy.

If you’re interested, we’d love to chat.

Seeking Tutor for Sixth Grade boy – Somerville

Seeking a tutor for our sixth-grade son, Liam

Basic responsibilities

  • Though much of this can be done by phone/computer/Skype, ideally, we’re looking for somebody to also meet with Liam in person once a week for an hour or so.
  • In-person meetings can be used for longer homework assignment reviews and provide an opportunity to connect.
  • We’d like the tutor to work with Liam through the end of the school year (mid-June), and over time also serve as a mentor. If schedules permit, we’d continue the job in SY2019-2020.
  • Starting rate is $20/hour.

Background Info

Other than math – which he excels at – he’s averaging a B-/C+ in the other academic subject areas of science, social studies, and English. Liam is very bright, but neuro-psych testing has shown his executive functioning skills are low, especially compared to his other cognitive skills e.g. memory, articulation, and analysis. What holds him back primarily is lack of focus and organization. His writing skills are also lagging – perhaps due to inadequate lessons in grammar and spelling at school – but a lot of it also related to Liam’s challenges focusing and staying patient.

We’re not really worried about his grades, but he’s stated he wants them to be better. We’re hoping to hire somebody whose main job would be to check in with Liam on a regular basis to help him stay organized.  Also, to help him with revising/proofreading the longer written homework assignments. As part of his Individual Education Plan, I get emails a few times a week his school’s Resource Specialist, who updates me about what assignments are due in the coming days. I can also access the school’s homework e-portal to see what assignments are coming up, and/or if they are overdue.

I would forward the Resource Specialist’s emails, and information from the school’s portal to the tutor whose job would include checking in with Liam by phone, Skype, or voice discord chat a few times a week to help make sure Liam’s done the work. Occasionally when there’s a bigger report/paper due, the tutor would proofread/edit with Liam.

We live in Somerville just west of Teele Square. If interested, please contact Laura at

Babysitting Opportunity – Winchester/Arlington MA

We are looking for someone to drive our 7 year-old son home from his after-school program on Mondays and Fridays at 5:45pm, and possibly to and from other activities on other days. This is a short drive, from Winchester to Arlington. There is a definite possibility for this to become a larger and long-term gig, especially once I return to work after maternity leave.

We are looking for someone with their own car and a clean driving record.

If interested, please email Letizia Allais at

Student caregiver – Bedford

We’re looking for a caregiver to pick up our son from his preschool at 11:30 a.m. in Bedford and watch him in our home in Bedford in the afternoon until 5 PM. We’d need coverage 2-5 days per week (number is negotiable per your schedule). A car is a requirement, as we need you to pick him up from school. We would provide the car seat.

We are in the process of getting him diagnosed, but we suspect he has one or all of the following: ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder and/or ASD. He is an adorable and charming boy with lots of strengths, but he can be challenging, so we’d prefer a caregiver with special needs interest and/or experience.

We also have a 4-month-old, typically developing, daughter. She will likely be in daycare all day long, but we could ask for you to care for her too on occasion.

Since our son will likely be napping for most of the afternoon while you’re watching him (he usually takes a 3 hour nap), we hope for someone willing to do light housework around the house (laundry, dishes) while he’s sleeping. But when he’s awake, he is obviously the higher priority.

Interested candidates can contact Courtney at We look forward to meeting you!

Babysitting Opportunity – West Medford

We are looking for a babysitter to care for our son James occasionally. James is an energetic and happy little one who loves legos, books, imaginative play, and music.

We’ve had babysitters from Tufts in the past and have typically had them care for James 2 to 4 times a month, usually on Friday or Saturday evenings/nights, but hours could include weekend days or occasional evenings during the week if available. Salary is $15 to $18 per hour.
