From Private Family (1): ZH has been with us this whole year, I can double check the exact dates if that’s important to you. She is home schooling my 3 kids. (Grade 6, grade 1 & preschool). In this time, she has gone above and beyond her duties. She communicated well, made valuable suggestions with regards to additional learning material and books. When she recognized learning difficulties, she arranged for the relevant tests and put a lot of time and extra studies into the relevant remedial courses. (She has the support of another private school with experts in the field). I’m sure this (remedial courses & experience) only adds to her already excellent resume. She is very driven and always ready to learn more to advance in her career. She arranged educational field trips with other homeschooling parents and always has something fun planned for the kids. She supervises my kids making their own lunches or makes them lunch among other fun snack and baking. She communicated well with regards to the time she need off for her exams and around other things. She is very sympathetic and a bit soft, yet manage my children well, especially my teenage daughter, and very very busy youngest son. She did not leave, she is currently still with us, but we will be relocating at the end of the month (late November/early December 2023). I won’t mind if she has to leave before that to start somewhere new.
From Private Family (2): ZH is a total sweetheart. She is great with kids and Instructions her. Her duties was to look after the kids and be the assistant teacher she worked for me for a few months wish I could have employed her for longer, but it was just a short contract. Her communication skills are on point she does what is being asked of her. With ZH, there is nothing to worry about; she is a lovable kind-hearted soul and I trust her very much with the kids. I always knew they were safe in her hands. ZH’s reason for leaving as I stated it was just a short contract. I would highly recommend her she would be an asset to the job.
