I am an Arabic Language educator and tutor with ample teaching experience -- more than 12 years of experience -- with excellent skills in tutoring the Arabic language extremely well, easily and stress free. I am a native Arabic speaker originally from Aleppo, Syria. U.S. Citizen.

I have an ample experience as an Arabic Language Linguist and Arabic-English Translator and have worked as a freelance linguist and translator with the State Department. I teach students of all ages and I am extremely kind and patient especially with young children. The majority of my students are college age students who can be beginners, intermediate or advanced in learning the Arabic language of which I help them with mastering the Arabic language from A to Z. I also prepare a portion of my students for a number of Arabic language tests -- a variety of tests including speech and conversation for MSA and the Middle East main dialects -- that are demanded by the U.S. government to pass and secure Arabic language related jobs here with the State Department or overseas in Arabic speaking countries. As for my personality, I have an extremely pleasant and a very positive attitude and care in teaching my students and encouraging them to learn and to reach their goals in learning the Arabic language.

Arabic

Hello:

I am an Arabic Language tutor. I have been teaching the Arabic Lanaguage to so many students for more than 10 years already. All of my students seek my help in learning the Arabic Language and in preparing for Arabic Language tests that are taught in colleges and universities. Also, many of my students seek my help with very challenging tests that are required by the State Department so that they can be employed oversees in Arabic Speaking countries. All my students value my teaching skills and recommend me highly to other students they know.

Thank you kindly,

Reem Nourallah
