My MA is in Teaching Arabic as a Foreign Language and I have given private lessons as well as taught Arabic at the University of Michigan. I am comfortable teaching MSA and Levantine dialect to high advanced levels and Egyptians through intermediate levels.
I completed three years of Hebrew at the University of Michigan and could read literature and handle a wide range of conversational topics by the end.
Additionally, I have studied and lived in Jerusalem and have had several friends I converse with in Hebrew, meaning I feel comfortable in both literary written Hebrew as well as street Hebrew.
I work as a professional translator and so an integral component of each job is the proofreading that comes before delivery to the client. I love tiny but important details like punctuation, formatting, consistency in style, etc.
Additionally, I was formerly the English Department Chair at the Chicago Extension School of the National Autonomous University of Mexico and my position there involved both teaching English as well as overseeing the department.
