Michele and Bishara Shbat have been tutoring Elementary School, Middle School, High School and University students in Math, Science, English and the Humanities since 1990; including in Washington, D.C. for ten years, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia for four years, and now in Doha since 2004.

Michele Shbat tutors English, including English as a second language, the Humanities, and Economics (at all levels including Honors, AP, IB, and IGCSE programs), and she is a published writer relating intercultural experiences between the Arab world and U.S./west.  (You can read her blog, “Arabian Musings,” and view her published articles at http://www.arabianmusings.wordpress.com .) Michele is also an Economist, Ph.D. (ABD), and has worked as a Finance Manager and Financial Planning Specialist in Washington, DC; Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; and with United Development Company and Shell-Qatar in Doha.

Bishara Shbat, who is a civil engineer and has worked as a contractor for the U.S. Navy in the Washington, DC area, as well as for major engineering/construction companies in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and in Doha, tutors in Math and Science, (including Honors, AP, IB, and IGCSE programs), and in Arabic as a second language. Bishara specializes in assisting/tutoring students with ADD and ADHD, and other learning disabilities, and has had very good results.

In addition, we provide support in preparing students for the SAT, ACT, IELTS, and TOEFL, and assistance in writing Personal Statements for college admissions.

We are currently providing “bridging services” for those students who wish to prepare for school admissions tests.

We are available for summer tutoring.

Skype tutoring (for which we have a proven track record) is also available.

    I am looking for private home tutoring for my son Jonathan in IB Math.
