We are looking for a great babysitter for 2 children in Arlington at least two afternoons per week from about 2:30 - 5:30/6:00 pm. Schedule is marked as varied because we can choose which days of the week, however once we do choose, it needs to stay that way for the rest of the semester. We would prefer a babysitter who has their own car as the kids might need rides to after school activities. They mostly like to play with friends at the playground or just want someone to let them lead the activity. Hours would include after school pick up at 2:30. Please feel free to email or text with questions!

Job Description

Hi there! We’re a Tufts Fletcher family living on campus through Summer 2023. We’re looking for weekday afternoon help with picking up our 6 year old from kindergarten at West Somerville Neighborhood School (by walking, three blocks away) on most days at 2:25 pm, bringing her home, helping with snacks, and keeping her occupied while mom works remotely from home and dad is at Fletcher. The job potentially would include driving (no more than 15-20 min each way) our child to afternoon sports/activities and then back to home afterward. We will provide a car with a car seat installed.

We also have a 4 year old who needs to be picked up around 5:15 pm from daycare, by walking, two blocks away (by this time mom will probably be done work so you wouldn’t always have to lug both kids).

We may be interested in having you work additional hours if you’re interested/available, such as on school days off, when the 6 year old has early dismissal on occasional Wednesdays (school dismissal noon), or an occasional evening babysitting session, but we can discuss those needs later. We are also open to two caregivers splitting the duties throughout the week–ideally, two individuals who already know each other so it is easier to coordinate/back each other up. Again, we’re only here for the current academic year (possibly to June/July). If you’re potentially interested, but not sure of all the details, please feel free to reach out to us so we can discuss!

$25 per hour (or potentially more with significant experience/qualifications). Bonus for fluent Mandarin Chinese and/or Korean speakers if you use it with our children.

Job Description
Hi!  My wife and I are looking for a Tufts SMFA student to provide drawing lessons for our 7-year-old daughter.  She got into drawing by copying the lines shown on Art for Kids Hub’s YouTube channel, and she goes at it for hours at a time at this point.
We are hoping for someone to help her go beyond copying other people’s lines and to start learning to develop her own eye for sketching the basic shape of objects, while making sure to have fun along the way.
The primary consideration for objects drawn will be Hazel’s interest. She currently likes to draw cartoon people and cartoon animals. She also is very much into The Lion King, and may like to draw those characters. The objects drawn could be physical things brought in for a lesson (like baby dolls, stuffed animals, or toy animals), or objects from a printed page or screen (like Disney characters). She also may be interested in sketching printouts of real animals as well.
One paid 60-minute lesson per week, from 5-6pm on a weekday. $20-$30 per lesson, depending on experience. Preferred location of the lesson is my house in Roslindale. However, we do not have easy access to public transportation, and so if needed we could look into the possibility of lessons on the Tufts School of the Museum of Fine Arts campus.
If interested, please text Jesse to schedule a phone interview: 802-535-2335.

Our son will be 1 years old by then. We prefer 4 days a week, from 9 am to 3 pm, but could potentially negotiate the time schedule a bit. We are a short walking distance from commuter rail, so a car is not necessary, though preferred. The sitter’s job will be to carry out tasks associated with caring for the little one; diapering, playing, and feeding (light housework directly related to infant care such as his laundry and cleaning up after meal time, etc). We are looking for someone who is fun and enthusiastic about childcare and who will provide an enrichment environment for our son via age appropriate games, talk, play etc. (no screen time). We are a very loving and fair family and would like to find someone who is responsible and health consciousness as I am immunocompromised. We therefore require that the sitter is vaccinated for Covid-19 and up to date with the latest booster. Experience with my son’s age range is a requirement. CPR, First Aid Certification, required. An interest or educational background in early education and/or ability to speak Spanish, Portuguese and/or Cape Verdean creole is a plus.

[If the candidate does not have infant CPR certification we may be willing to cover the costs, if we find the right match.

Additional details: My husband works from home and I will be home at times, so there will always be a parent present. The sitter will primarily stay downstairs in the living room area where we have a play station/baby station set up for our son. We live in an area that is walking distance to several parks. We also have space for the sitter’s car. Thank you so much for reading this add! Please contact us if there’s interest; We will offer competitive pay that is commensurate with experience.

Job Description:
Hello! We are looking for after school help for our three kids (ages 3, 6, 7) starting the first week in October. Mostly, we need help coordinating school pick up and drop offs at after school activities. And snacks. So many afterschool snacks. The eldest loves Harry Potter and math, the middle one loves crafts and games, and the baby is a third child, so she just wants to do whatever the bigs are doing.

If you can get to our house (we are a little over a mile away from campus) and have a clean driving record, we can provide a car with carseats, etc but most everything is within walking distance. Hours are M, T, Th, F 2:45 -5:30 and Wednesday 12:30-5. The little one gets picked up at 3 every day and the bigs get picked up most days at 3:40 but Wednesdays at 1 because of early release days. We understand that most likely one person can't take all five days (though that would be great!) but let us know if you are interested in any of the days. After the summer, the children are very bored with us so they are excited to have literally anyone but us come and hang out with them.

Looking forward to talking to you!!
