GBGrace Bolton

Hi I’m Grace, founder of Grace’s Sitters. I have been running Grace’s Sitters since July 2016 and I love that it has been so well received by the Marlow community! I have 8 years babysitting experience and I really enjoy getting to know different families in and around Marlow. Growing up in Marlow, I attended Danesfield School and Sir William Borlase. I graduated from the University of Nottingham July 2018, with a Bachelors in Mathematics and Economics. At University I was a Student Ambassador helping out on open days as I enjoy interacting with people. I have also been a keen rower and attended the European Universities Regatta in Serbia Summer 2017, rowing for the University of Nottingham as part of the GB Universities Team. As your babysitter I have experience in tutoring children of various ages, so as well as playing games I am happy to get stuck in with homework help!

Hi, I’m Joe and I am 17 years old. I am in my final year at Shiplake College studying Drama and Business. Outside of my studies I am currently doing my Duke of Edinburgh Gold award and I have just completed my Lamda Drama Grade 8. I also volunteer at a local St John’s Care home. I have a 12-year-old brother Theo, who I often have look after when our Mum and Dad go out. I also enjoy helping my brother with his prep and reading at home as well as playing a range of computer games and activities. As a prefect at the Oratory Prep School, I had the responsibility of helping with activities and games at the Nursery School. As your babysitter, I am happy to help with homework, reading, games; whilst of course keeping the children happy and safe.

Hiya! I’m Clara and I am 17. I am currently, studying English, Maths, Biology and Chemistry at SWBGS and I am also fluent in Mandarin. I am very comfortable working with children and have tutored students up to GCSE level. Last summer I spent a week teaching several classes of children as young as 4 years old in Uganda. I greatly enjoyed sharing my (regretfully basic) dancing skills and children’s games, keeping them entertained and learning for hours. In my spare time I like to do art and play my violin. At university I’m looking at taking Medicine, Philosophy or Veterinary Medicine so I would love to take care of pets as well as your children!
