I always thought about tutors as those who can analyze the need of the student without stressing them, then develop the right strategy to deliver the information. In general, I see teaching as finding the right way to make the student interested in learning; however, with teaching Arabic, I feel that my advantage is that it is my native language, so I will be able to make it very simple to be understood. I do not have a magic formula to make the student understand everything in a second, but I have what it takes to make the student change the way they look at learning a new language. Arabic is not a language that anyone will choose to study unless they have an interest to do so, which gives me the ability to work side-by-side with the student to make that interest change to a motivation and later to a skill.
Arabic is my first language because I grew up in Egypt. I studied Arabic throughout my education in elementary, middle and high school. In addition, I studied Arabic in college, which included but was not limited to: literary analysis, grammar, poetry, speech/public speaking, and professional writing.
My second language is English, and I will complete my Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration with a focus on International Business at Walden University. I am completely fluent in reading, writing, and speaking in both languages.
Lastly, I studied the Islamic religion as part of the curriculum at all levels in the Egyptian education system. Hence, I am able to be an Islamic tutor at all levels from K-12 through the college level. I use children’s books, audio, cards, and posters to present the material. In addition, I try to speak with the student for a certain period of time to make sure his or her listening ability is growing. I have no problem going over the same material more than one time to make it clear. My strategy in life is that failure is not one of my options, and so I will do anything to achieve my students’ goals in order to gain success
