Marhaba! My name is Mohammed. Being both a native Arabic speaker and having extensive teaching experience on the elementary and university levels, I am be able to create interesting, creative, and engaging lessons and teaching methods for students to facilitate effective absorption and retention of the Arabic language.
Currently, I am teaching Elementary and Intermediate Arabic courses at local colleges. I had also taught Arabic at New York University for the last two years. While teaching at NYU and prior, I also taught introductory Arabic to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders at Public Schools in NYC.
As an Arabic teacher for 13 years in Moroccan public schools, I have accumulated substantial teaching experience with both younger students, as well as adults, many of whom were initially illiterate in the language. During my residency in New York City for the last seven years, I have been tutoring Arabic to non-native speakers and children who come from an Arabic background in the local community. I have been able to develop an outstanding rapport with my students, through trying to create both a fun and rigorous learning environment, and demonstrating my passion for teaching and my love of the Arabic language. Moreover, as a native Moroccan, I speak the Moroccan dialect of Arabic, but am also very familiar with Egyptian and Levantine Arabic.
I am always trying to better my teaching methods through participating in various training programs for teachers of Arabic as a second language. Most recently, I have participated in programs at Mc. Daniel College in Maryland and California State University in San Bernardino.
My goal is to help beginners to overcome any difficulties they may face in learning Arabic as well as helping students with previous knowledge of Arabic to sharpen their language skills and excel.
