My name is Zoe Sharp and I am a 25 year old Canadian woman currently living in Leiden. I grew up babysitting kids of various ages and learned a lot over the years. I have a great affinity with kids and have always enjoyed babysitting and tutoring work immensely. I did continual work with one family in particular for many years. They had two older daughters and one younger and autistic son. I enjoyed dreaming up crafts and activities to entertain the kids. I also worked as an assistant director and camp counsellor for a children's musical theatre company for many years. This catered to children from ages 5 to 18 years old. I taught these kids drama skills and kept them entertained with games in the downtime.
I then went on to obtain my Bachelor of Science with Honours from Queen's University in Canada. During this time I did some babysitting and also volunteered for Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE). This organization supports girls entering the fields of math and science. I volunteered at their Women Appreciation Day event doing face paint and scientific demonstrations for kids. As I furthered my scientific career working in a lab, my passion for caring for and teaching kids only increased. I volunteered for Let's Talk Science visiting classrooms and giving scientific demonstrations to kids. I also helped administer the Let's Talk Science Challenge to kids from schools all over Victoria.
Since arriving in Leiden I have been looking for babysitting and tutoring jobs. I am a deeply compassionate and caring person. I am intelligent and I work hard. I have had unique experience working with kids of various ages and stages of development and wish to continue this work in Leiden (and the surrounding regions).
