Part Time, starting ASAP

Upper West Side
1 child1: 9 1/2
$20/hr for for 14 hours per week

I am looking forward to finding a sitter who wants to do after school pick up five days a week on the Upper West Side. I have an amazingly witty and fun 9 1/2 year old son (not that I'm objective!). He's a social and engaging kid, an avid reader and not much of an athlete. I work full time and need someone to pick him up after school, help with homework and give him dinner (only cooking skills required are reheating food in small oven). I'm thinking I need about 15 hours/ week of help. I can sign my son up for after school activities to accommodate your exact schedule. I would like to hire someone who is committed and eager to be a role model to a fourth grade boy. I would like to hire someone who ideally is available for the whole school year. In 9 1/2 years, we have only had two sitters and each is now a part of our small family. I would like to continue this great pattern. If this might work for you, please let me know.
