I am very passionate about teaching Arabic and Translating/ Interpreting Arabic/ English, not only because of the joy I receive from helping others, but also because it is my cultural background. This in itself gives my client an experience they would not receive in a formal setting from a others who has only studied and/or visited an Arabic-speaking country for a small amount of time. My services include Official or Formal Middle-Eastern Arabic from the basic level to advanced level. My experience and services include communicating, reading, writing, spelling, comprehension, grammar, and speaking of Arabic. I can also assist in tutoring for Arabic language arts, improved literacy, and homework/schoolwork.
I teach students of all ages, particularly grades Pre-K, K-12, Undergraduate, and Graduate students. Aside from the teaching of Arabic, I also tutor in the translating and interpreting of Arabic. I am a motivated, experienced teacher who can help you truly learn the language. You won't leave me having spent hours in a desk and still not knowing the language.
