After school sitter (Winchester, Lexington/ Burlington)

Hello Tufts Students!

I am looking for an after school sitter for 3 children (12, 9, 6) who can pick the kids up from Winchester and drive them to their parents’ homes in Burlington or Lexington (depending on the week) or to appointments in the same general area.

The kids are neurodiverse and twice-exceptional (and sociable and fun) so experience working with 2E kids is a huge plus!   I’m a PhD student at Tufts in mechanical engineering and HRI, and the children’s father is a software engineer.

The right candidate is vaccinated (COVID-19 and otherwise!), a safe driver, reliable, and a good communicator (I prefer text).

Proposed pay is $30/hour with a 3-hour minimum per day, and could be weekly M-F 3-6, or fewer days or alternate weeks, depending on your availability.  If you don’t have a car, we can potentially work something out for you to use mine for driving the children.
