1st March 2013 Dear whomever it may concern, Elena worked for us from August 2011 to March 2013 as an au pair and managing the home. She adapted incredibly well to life in England and embraced all opportunities to learn and develop during her time. The manner in which she integrated herself into our family was incredible and she truly became a member of the ‘Simms family!’ Elena has cared for and developed our children far above our expectations and has been successful in teaching both children Spanish and our 3 year old is fluent! Elena is very trustworthy and dependable, and has had no absence at all during her time with us. Being dependable and acting in a professional manner is very important to us as one of our children needs regular medication throughout the day at very specific intervals, which Elena has dealt with and maintained exceptionally well. Her patient nature has enabled her to deal with all situations calmly and overcome issues that have arisen with the children and get the desired outcome in the best possible way. In addition to this Elena is creative and fun and is always keen to ensure she provides great experiences for the children and facilitates learning. She plans days out and activities to engage and develop the children, never taking the easy option. When needed she has responded well to the children’s feelings and ‘moods’ adapting plans accordingly to work to their needs. She also has great networking skills and quickly became independent and established in the Liverpool community and has created a life for herself and created more opportunities to work and learn more about the language, business and the city. I really would highly recommend Elena and would be confident she could adapt to any role and situation in a professional manner and deliver to a high standard. Please don’t hesitate to contact myself or Adam Simms should you have any questions or require a reference (07725 564 640) or Adam Simms (07837 622 128)

Kind Regards Gayle Simms
