I am an Education and Psychology major with experience working with and caring for children ages newborn to 13 years old in a childcare/daycare context and ages 5-17 in an educational context.

make friends with my dog

I am looking for someone to come spend time with Petey, our three year old chihuahua terrier mix. Petey is not aggressive but he is very shy and afraid of strangers (aka anyone not us.)

We are not looking for you to walk him or dog sit him. We are looking for someone to spend an hour a week simply hanging out with him and allow him to get used to being around humans that aren’t his parents :)We will be present in the house at all times.

$30/hr. We are located in Claymont DE but will reimburse gas.

Moving help needed on Friday 06/14

I am a faculty member looking for a group of ~4 students to help execute a move in the Philadelphia area. Your tasks will include packing and lifting boxes and furniture at the first apartment, loading items securely into a Uhaul, and then unloading them at the second apartment. The apartment is a 1-bedroom and contains a bed, desk, bookshelves, a couch, a TV, etc.

The loading site is a 3rd floor walk-up in Media. The unloading site is a large apartment building with a cargo elevator in Center City Philadelphia near Jefferson Station.

I will give you a ride from your residence to the apartment in Media. I will also arrange transportation for you from Media to Center City. I may also be able to give you a ride back home; if not, you should be able to take the Media/Wawa Line from Jefferson Station to Swarthmore station and I will reimburse you.

If you have any SEPTA fare expenses, you will be reimbursed. Note that you will *not* be driving the moving truck.

The time commitment should be 4-6 hours, and I will suggest a timeline of 2 PM to ~6-8 PM. Depending on how many hands we have, it could take shorter or longer. You will earn a flat rate of $80, via Venmo or (if you prefer) in cash.
