Babysittter/nanny in Newton, MA

Live In/Live out Nanny/Babysitter Needed For 2 Children

Newton family needs a live in/live out nanny. Must love kids! I am a single mom with 2 school aged kids (age 12 and 7 years). I plan to keep kids home for virtual learning for fall so both kids will be doing virtual learning from home and may need some supervision. Some help with meal prep, homework help for younger kid and light tidying will be expected. Both kids are otherwise health and independent. Need some flexibility to help with school closure/snow days etc as well when that happens. You will have plenty of down time to pursue college or other hobbies.

This job is best suited for a college student who has flexible classes and is looking for free living arrangement with additional income on top or someone who lives nearby and is pursuing online school which can be done on the side as kids are independent. Having a work permit is a must. All payments will be on books. Separate bedroom/bathroom on a separate floor will be provided for live in option.

Salary for live in is 13-14$/hr and for live out is 18-20$/hr.

Please email monikasrc@gmail.com with questions or applications.

Weekday tutor in Somerville (possibility of discounted rent)

Pay: $15-$20 /hr and/or significantly discounted rent for room in Somerville home (to be negotiated based on specifics of situation)

I am a single mother of a rising 5th grade boy who will be either home this coming school year doing remote learning or part-time home, part-time at school (he attends a very small private special education therapeutic school that is considering a hybrid model for in-person return this fall). I work full time as an attorney and am currently working 95% from home.

My son does not need childcare, per se, but he would benefit greatly from a tutor who could help him stay on task for his online school and assignments and otherwise be available as a mentor. He is a very smart, creative, and sensitive boy who plays piano, tennis and enjoys video games and graphic novels.

Live-in part-time nanny in Andover

Pay: $15-$20 /hr (+ free room and board)
We are keeping our two boys (5 and 3) home from school this year and having both sets of their grandparents living with us. The grandparents can do some childcare, but doing full days is too much for them so we’re looking for someone to help. 


So we are looking for someone who would like to get free room and board at a beautiful house in Andover (with pool, hot tub, lots of land, gardens, etc.) and do 20-30 hrs/week of paid childcare / household help (meal prep, tidying, making shopping lists, etc.). 
Ideal profile is likely someone who is doing online classes or something like that in their spare time but would benefit from free housing/food and a part time job.

Note: Because we would be living with our in-laws (>80yrs old), we will be in STRICT quarantine (no going to public areas, restaurants, having friends over, etc.) until there is a vaccine, so you’d need to be comfortable with that. Huge plus if you speak another language!

Nanny in Medford

We are seeking a nanny to take care of our 3.5 years old daughter and 6 years old son in Medford (near Tufts) this fall/winter and potentially continuing into 2021. We are seeking 30-40 hours per week. Specific hours and days are somewhat flexible. Our daughter will be in half-day in-person preschool and our son will be in kindergarten (which we anticipate will be partly remote learning). Ideally the schedule would cover the times when either or both child is not in school in-person. We have some schedule flexibility and can accommodate your schedule, too, if needed. Anticipated after-tax pay is ~$20 per hour.

Responsibilities include playing, crafts, reading, preparing lunches and snacks and likely some supervision of remote kindergarten. An ideal candidate will have a driver’s license (not necessarily a car) to take the kids on outings (zoo, hikes, etc.) and perhaps do some school pickup/dropoff. Ability to travel to and from our home by walking/biking/driving (i.e. not public transportation) is preferred but not required.

We are a smoke-free, pet-free household and have been social distancing; we are seeking someone who has also been social distancing (avoiding crowds, wearing a mask; small outdoor meetups with friends are okay).
