About Shabena

I am a 2015 graduate of a private New York City University. I have three degrees in Political Science, Philosophy & Religious Studies and Biochemistry and a current law school candidate. I have been inducted into the Young Teachers Program, where I worked on basic English and Math skills with second graders for an entire year. Moreover, while in college I was a paid peer-leader and taught biology 101 to incoming freshmen.

I am very patient and understanding when it comes to students struggling with a subject, and can adapt to different teaching techniques. Majority of the families I work with have been with me for years and I value the parent-tutor relationship. I have flexible hours, and am willing to tutor during the weekends.

Feel free to get in touch!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bible Studies

I was a religious studies major at my university, and focused on the Old and New Testament. Moreover, my thesis was centric to The Holy Quran. As it pertains to Bible Studies, I am well versed in the Holy Scriptures in addition to the annexes.

Elementary (K-6th)

Per my profile, I was inducted into the Young Teachers Program while in high school, and spent a year teaching a second grade class. Moreover, I have been tutoring for nearly a decade, and as you can see from my previous students and testimonies, I tend to work with mostly children aged 5-12 in a variety of subjects. I help with my students with incomplete classwork, regular homework, and state exams. In majority of my sessions, I print out and provide additional material to supplement my student's learning.

Public Speaking

I passed COM 101 with a solid A. I can help if students are struggling with anxiety.

Study Skills

Being a college student, I have used flashcards, made up songs, and have even become a pro at making, mnemonic devices.
