Job description:
Hello, to all! We are a family located in Stoneham, Massachusetts who are looking to hire an online tutor for our youngest daughter. She is in the 5th grade (which is considered middle school) and goes to school four days a week. However, she is remote on Wednesday's, which happens to be mostly asynchronous work. Unfortunately, my family's work schedule does not match with her new school schedule. So, we need someone who can be with her through zoom to ensure she completes the work that needs to be done, but also to ensure she understands it. Her classes you'd be assisting her with are math, science, social studies and ELA, so you must be proficient in 5th grade subjects. She does have fine motor skills so her typing will be slower than most, and she has ADHD so we need someone to help her keep focused. With this being said, the person who will be hired would work from 8 am - 12 pm on Wednesdays, and we may even schedule you for some after school help somedays. We can talk more about her and payment during the interview process.

Job description:
Hello! I am Haley, mother to three young kids, ages 6, 4 and 2. We are expecting another little one in early June. Our family is looking for a fun-loving, positive and gentle soul to be with our kids part-time while we work. Our oldest is at school until 3pm so I imagine whoever we hire will be with the younger two, depending on what time of day you're available to be with us. Our kids love to play outside (in all weather), enjoy arts and crafts, read lots of books and build Legos. Primary responsibilities would be just having fun with the kids, including taking them out around town. Tidying up after the kids, doing a load of their laundry and occasional light meal prep would be helpful to us as well. Ideally, whoever we hire would be available 2-3 mornings or afternoons each week and this would increase in the summer when we have a newborn. Infant experience/care is not required as I will be caring for the baby. Thank you for your interest, we look forward to hearing from you!

Job description:
We are two working parents with busy schedules (sometimes working from home in the basement office, sometimes out of the house all day) who have an 8 year old who attends remote school from home and a 19 month old in daycare much of the day.

We are looking for someone to help our 8 year old navigate through her afterschool activities and pickup/transport our son from daycare from approximately 2:00 - 5:30 M-F. There will be occasional weeks (ca 1 week every two months) where we may request longer hours if possible.

Responsibilities include
- Being present in the house while our 3rd grade daughter is finishing school for the day
- Checking that she has completed her homework and helping as needed (e.g. review her spelling words).
- Taking her to her daily, masked, outdoor playdate with 3 friends after school (and sometimes supervising the playdate).
- Helping her keep her schedule of online afternoon activities (violin class or math lesson).
- Prepping lunch and snacks for daycare the next day.
- Picking up our son from daycare (with your car) in the afternoon.
- Starting to prep dinner before parents come home at 530p
Since there will be time when kids are not present / occupied we also are asking for some household tasks, including laundry, vacuuming and basic tidying.
We are seeking someone who is COVID conscious (consistently wears mask outdoors, avoids indoor gatherings, avoids non-essential travel). Having a car, valid license and excellent driving record is important.

Job description:
We are a Somerville family looking for a part-time caregiver to watch for our 6-month-old in our home, near Magoun Square, starting in February. We also have a 3-year-old who attends preschool and will not be home unless for special circumstances.

We have some flexibility on days, but ideally 2.5 - 3 days (not Friday), for 20-25 hours weekly (could negotiate less though).

Some light tidying would be part of the caregiver's responsibilities, as would helping with baby laundry and light meal-prepping. We have 2 big dogs who are very friendly, but having comfort around dogs is absolutely necessary.

We are VERY COVID-cautious and ask that you only apply if you are too. Strict COVID-precautions and adherence to safety guidelines are required.

Thank you!

Job description:
Hi! We’re looking for a nanny for full days on Wednesday’s (approx 8am -6pm, though flexible) plus half days in the afternoons for 1-3 afternoons per week. It’s probably 15-25hrs a week but we can be flexible. Start date - February (again flexible as to when in February). Our twin girls are 2 1/2 and our son is 4 1/2. All 3 nap at the same time for 2+ hours and are in school / daycare half days in the morning (except Wednesday’s when they’re all home). Mom works from home during covid. The schedule might work well for a student, as the kids sleep in the afternoons we’re looking for someone to do meal prep (probably just for the kids) and laundry. We live in Inman Sq and we’re a super warm and welcoming family. The main thing we’re looking for is someone who genuinely loves being around kids and has so much fun with them! No allergies or health concerns.
Thank you,
