Babysitting two twins (Boston, MA)

A family is looking for a graduate student who is interested in doing some babysitting for two twins who are both diagnosed with ASD. Parents are a bit overwhelmed and hoping to find some babysitters for them to get a minute for themselves. Parents primary language is Mandarin, but their English is totally fluent and they can switch between them without difficulty so language needs aren’t a factor. For the weekends, it would only be for 1-2 hours, similar for the weekdays from 4-7pm.

Please contact Eric Wong at ewong2@bostonpublicschools.org  for more information.

Babysitter for 9 month old (Medford)

We are looking for someone who is willing to watch our nine month old at our house. We don’t need specific days, but the occasional afternoon/evening. We are a five minute drive from campus in Medford. It is easiest to get to our home by car. We are willing to pay for an uber in addition to the hourly rate of $20/hour. Responsibilities would include diapering, feeding, and general baby care. He goes to bed rather early, so it would mostly be sitting in our house doing homework once he is in bed! We also have a very calm, friendly dog.

Spanish-speaking Babysitter (Medford)

We are looking for a Spanish speaking student who would be interested in taking care of our 10 year-old twin daughters on Thursdays from 3 to 5pm approximately (3:30 to 5 if not available earlier), starting in September and throughout the school year. Our daughters had a Spanish speaking babysitter when they were younger, they fully understand Spanish and are able to communicate fairly well although they are not bilingual. They have been asking for someone who could help them keep practicing. Therefore we would like to hire someone whose native tongue is Spanish (or both English and Spanish), who is outgoing and would commit to only speak Spanish to them.

Activities would include playing various games with them -indoors and/or outdoors depending on the weather- and maybe helping them a little bit with homework. They will likely be back from school around 2:45pm but are old enough to go home alone, so arrival time for you is flexible. We live very close to Tufts, about 10 minutes walking on the Medford side.

Pay: $25/hour.
Non smoker please.
Experience with children a plus but not required.

If you are not available on Thursdays but are still interested, feel free to reach out all the same. Tuesdays 5/5:30 to 7pm could also be an option. Please email if you have any questions.
