I am working toward getting my bachelors degree in special education to become a teacher for children with special needs. I grew up in a big family and enjoy working with children. I've worked at a day care during the summer of 2015, a pre-school during the summer of 2017, and was a camp counselor during the summer of 2018. I supervised children from ages 3-12 and assisted in fun indoor and outdoor activities, and helped with homework. I plan and teach English and math lessons as well. I also usually watch after my cousin (age 8) who has autism. I am currently a lead safety aide for SUNY Old Westbury University Police and provide numerous security services to enhance the safety of the college community during evening hours.

Shakima helped tutor my younger sister (age 10) as she transitioned to online learning. Whenever my sister was frustrated with a new concept, Shakima's patience and persistence pushed her to work on what troubled her in a way that didn't stress her out. Shakima is consistent and helped my sister develop schedule when working on homework. Months after having worked with Shakima, my sister still completes her homework around the same time. Shakima also provided a great deal of help with babysitting my sister. She is flexible with the hours even willing to work last minute, she is "COVID cautious", and she always kept me in the loop about what is going on. My sister would come back home and tell me the experiences she had from her day with Shakima always with delight in her voice. I highly recommend Shakima for babysitting and tutoring.
