I have over 20 years' experience in teaching the Arabic language and culture to college and university students, government and private institutions. I designed a year-round Arabic intensive course that ran for seven years. In the course, students registered with no knowledge of Arabic and finished the course with an advanced level. As an Arabic language certified language proficiency tester, I applied foreign language teaching principles that reduced the time to learn Arabic and increased proficiency when compared to other institutions.

In addition to Modern Standard Arabic, I provide instruction in various spoken variants to include Iraqi (and other Gulf variants), Levantine (Syrian, Lebanese, Jordanian and Palestinian), and Egyptian. Language skills include listening, reading, speaking and writing, as well as, grammar, culture and Middle Eastern humanities.

I am currently caring for ailing parents and have a flexible schedule suitable for the circumstances.

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.

Arabic

Arabic is my native tongue and I have been teaching the language to adult learners for over 24 years. My experience covers teaching in academia, government and private colleges and universities. I have also been certified as an oral proficiency tester in Arabic by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages, though not currently active. As well, I have conducted numerous oral proficiency interviews for government employees using government language skill levels.
