About this tutor

My tutoring service is an accumulation of experience with k-12 students at a local charter school in Boston, tutoring for a sociology course in college and my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. I have experience tutoring ESL students, reading, writing and editing essays for content and grammar. I will create an individualized plan for students to encourage learning and retention during COVID-19 and for the upcoming school year.

    Shayane remains calm and professional at all times. Her warm embrace makes it easy to grasp difficult concepts. Shayane is amazing and I would recommend her to anyone having difficulty with social science.

    I loved that she was extremely patient with me and helped me find effective strategies to study. I am confident that I will be able to take the skills I learned from her to succeed as I transition into remote school.

    Shayane provides a global perspective to everything she teaches. She challenges us to think about perspectives that we have never considered and include a variety of historical, cultural, and social factors that must be considered when studying social sciences

    Ane tutored my little sister for about a month and she loved it. Ane has great communication skills both in and out of tutoring. She had extreme patience while tutoring my little sister.


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

My process is to communicate with their guardian to understand what they would like to polish or learn. Then I would evaluate their skills based on MA standards and develop a plan to reach their goal. Activities would include reading aloud, writing based on a prompt or freestyle, editing grammar and quizzes without grades. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Emmanuel College in Boston. I have 5 plus years of elementary tutoring and summer counseling at a local charter school and church. I have a year of tutoring sociology at the college level and recently accepted a job to teach English to French primary level students. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My pricing system will depend on the socioeconomic status of the family to ensure equity especially during COVID-19. I start off at $25 an hour and will discuss other prices if there are multiple children in the family etc. 

What types of students have you worked with?

Students of color in a local charter school and church in Boston. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

To ensure that they can teach multiple subjects and has a growth mindset that can be passed down to their students. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

1. What they want to improve or learn 2. What level where they placed in before COVID-19 3. What may prevent you from learning information & how can the tutor help mitigate that?
