Hello everyone! My name is Alessandra and I am 24 years old. I am originally from Turin, but I am currently living in Siena to complete my master’s degree in European Studies.
I previously graduated in foreign languages, so I can speak English, Spanish, German and French. I also had the chance to gain to some working experience abroad as a kids entertainer: I have been working seasonally in Switzerland in a five star hotel as an animator and I enjoyed my time there. Thanks to this profession, I did not only improve my language skills, but I also developed new skills, for instance in the organisation of entertainment activities for children and handcrafts. I also have experience in homework tutoring and babysitting for private families. Moreover, I did a university internship as a tourist guide in Turin, where I had to organize city tours with classes of middle and high school students.
I think I get on well with children as I have a creative mind as children have: interaction, creativity and sparkle are key points to work with children in a harmonious environment. My work experience is mainly with children aged 6 months-11 years old, but I can easily work with children of any age.
I like cooking, travelling, visiting museums and everything related to the cultural an art world. I am looking forward to meeting you and your family and having fun together!
