Hi, everybody,

My name is Cynthia D. Here's a little bit about myself... I just moved from Virginia to Colorado. I am originally from Lebanon. Right now, I am enrolled in an online program for translation- Arabic to English at New York University. At the same time, I would like to find a teaching job, because I enjoy it and ... I need it! :)

In Virginia, I worked as an Arabic instructor for over 2 years and 9 months in a private language institute that was contracted with the government. I taught government and private students -often individually- Modern Standard and Levantine Arabic at levels ranging from 0 to 4. I developed individualized curricula for my students and trained them for FSI, DLPT and OPI tests. I also conducted and evaluated FSI-format tests in Levantine and Modern Standard Arabic. In addition, I developed translation testing material, and evaluated Arabic to English translations. After thorough training in advanced teaching methodology (communicative approach), advanced speaking, listening and reading, FSI and DLPT tests, I received a tester certification.

Also in Virginia, I worked for an NGO, in a program for survivors of torture and trauma, as a French and Arabic translator and interpreter in legal, social, psychiatric and psychological settings.

I have a Certificate of Advanced English Proficiency from Georgetown University. Right before I came to the States, I earned my B.S. in Nutrition and Dietetics.

In addition to Lebanon, I have traveled to Egypt, Jordan, Syria, France and Monaco.

Alright now the fun stuff... I love languages and I truly enjoy teaching. But I also think of it as a serious responsibility to make full use of the student's money, time and energy. Therefore, I am committed to my student's progress. The student has the right to professional, honest and productive instruction. I have an interactive student-based teaching approach. My students tell me I am clear, patient and positive. I realize learning a language can be challenging and therefore frustrating. That's why I incorporate creative techniques and interesting activities that target the student's needs and help him/her practice new concepts. I always welcome and even ask for constructive criticism from my students. Why? Well, because after all, my students' well-being is necessary for their progress.

Thanks for reading about me. I really hope I get to meet you. Should you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me. Whether we work together or not, I wish you the best in your language endeavors!

Sincerely,
Cynthia

Arabic

I am originally from Lebanon. I have traveled to several Arabic countries, including Egypt, Jordan and Syria. Right now, I am a translation student in a continuing studies program at New York University. In Virginia, I worked as an Arabic instructor for over two and a half years in a private language institute that was contracted with the government. I taught government and private students Modern Standard and Levantine Arabic at levels ranging from 0 to 4. I developed individualized curricula for my students and trained them for FSI, DLPT and OPI tests. I also conducted and evaluated FSI-format tests in Levantine and Modern Standard Arabic. In addition, I developed translation testing material, and evaluated Arabic to English translations. After thorough training in advanced teaching methodology (communicative approach), advanced speaking, listening and reading, FSI and DLPT tests, I received a tester certification. Also in Virginia, I worked for an NGO as an Arabic translator and interpreter in legal, social, psychiatric and psychological settings. I have a Certificate of Advanced English Proficiency from Georgetown University. Right before I came to the States, I earned my B.S. in Nutrition and Dietetics in Lebanon.

French

I studied French ever since I was 3 years old. In fact, 80% of my education from 1st grade till the end of high school was in French. I have a B.S. in Nutrition and Dietetics. All my degree was in French. I spent some time in Nice, Cannes and Monaco. In Virginia, I worked for an NGO as a French translator and interpreter in legal, social, psychiatric and psychological settings. I have about 3 years of experience tutoring. I enjoy this beautiful language, and I would love to teach it!

Finally found a great Arabic tutor in Denver! — I am so impressed with Cynthia. First of all she is very kind and ultra patient. She gives the student time to process things and figure them out and do it on their own. She helps you along the way without doing it for you, which is so great! She explains things very well, step-by-step, so that they are logical, and she gives you alternative ways to practice. She also REALLY knows her grammar ...
