Ruth Rose Rae

Language Coach and Nutrition, Dance and Fitness Coach of BBrainy Smart School – Outdoor Learning

“To tell you a little about me and my background, I am half British, half German and grew up part of my time in California (US), part in the UK. I have worked as a nanny, babysitter, and children’s teacher for many years, as well as a dancer, certified yoga/Pilates instructor, nutrition counselor and wellness coach, and massage therapist, (and here and there as a personal assistant) but my favorite thing besides dancing has always been working with children. With the onset of the current pandemic, work as a dancer I do not foresee being active for a long time, at least until next year, and I do not feel working as a Massage therapist is safe or will be safe for a couple of years (other than perhaps with one family I work with, if that or any of my other skill sets are of interest – although this would have to be entirely separate from any nanny agreement).   I actually love working with children the most, but my other work started to take off in NYC and the little girl for whom I nannied for went to school, and I was touring internationally often such that being consistently with a family was not possible. My wellness business took more time in the last year or so, but given the current circumstances I am happy to return fully to childcare for the next year or two (if I had an amazing match and situation with a family perhaps longer).
I have many experiences in life that combine together to help with working as a nanny or tutor (or both): I have a diverse education in both the arts and sciences, so can help with all school subjects (science, math, English, dance, elementary music, etc.). With my science background I have also been certified in nutrition; if a family wishes for help in this way, I can make sure children eat healthy food (Or if they have preferred foods or traditions this is of course fine as well).  I have had many years of experience working with children: I have been dancing since I was 2 years old and began teaching young children (and later all ages) dance when I was a teenager, and also began babysitting at that age as well. I worked first as a baby-sitter for many children, then as a nanny. I also have taught after-school science classes and worked as an after-school tutor, helping students with all subjects (science, math, history, English, etc.), worked in after school enrichment programs, eventually helping design one for children, incorporating interactive creative activities in the arts and sciences, and even worked for a short time as a teacher for teachers, helping them teach science in more interactive and creative ways (combining my creative arts and sciences).  As for the arts, in addition to dance, I love fine art, music, and culture. I used to play the clarinet and the piano and studied singing a little bit.  I additionally worked as a professional house-cleaner in college, so I also am good at keeping order and cleanliness and have an eye for such things.
I had been dancing and working in the United States in New York City until February, with trips in between to the UK as I am a citizen there, and have traveled to Italy 2-3 times a year to dance/perform. I have danced at many performances in the Veneto and for Carnival in Venice every year since 2016.  If things open, for a long term position I would request two weeks to go to Venice to perform during the weeks of Carnevale, however this year is very much in question as to whether it will be safe or even possible. I have studied Spanish and Italian, so can speak these a little bit -I would love the opportunity to practice them more and become fluent, and would be very much open to an international nanny position in Italy.  Since English is my native language and I have taught English to non-English speakers before, I can help non-English speaking children learn the language, or help native English speakers with their grammar.
I am young at heart, and I love to help children find joy with each day and in life, and help them find their innate creative spirit and intellect. I study the work of Isadora Duncan and she used to teach children to work with “the highest intelligence and freest body” – this sentiment applied mostly to dance, but it is also something that can apply to life in general. I love to watch children learn and grow and find their personalities and help them develop their fullest potential while simultaneously having fun. I’d like to live in with a family in part to help with my transition to another country but also to be part of the family dynamic at some level. I find working with one family of children consistently over some time is most rewarding (as compared to working with many for a few hours a day or week). “
