I would wholeheartedly recommend that any student at any level of proficiency should have Dana as their tutor. As long as your overarching goal is to improve your understanding of the Arabic language, Dana is a great choice for a tutor. During our first month together, she's been extremely patient with me and helped to develop a lesson plan based on what I want to achieve in my Arabic Studies. Not only is she very qualified, but she is also very easy to reach and very flexible on meeting times. To any student in the Philadelphia area looking to improve their Arabic skills, I would recommend you to work with Dana.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have a B.A. from the University of Utah in Middle Eastern Studies with an emphasis in Arabic. I also have an International Studies degree with the Middle East as my area focus. I am also a native speaker of Arabic and have lived in the Middle East for over twenty years. I have taught Arabic in both public and private settings for over ten years. My expertise is in both Modern Standard Arabic (as per my degree) and Levantine Arabic (as a native speaker).
I have worked with students of all ages teaching: beginner, intermediate, as well as advanced Arabic. I designed, planned, and implemented the Arabic curriculum (reading, writing, conversation, cultural activities) for an elementary school in Lower Merion.
I have also taught Arabic to adults. I have worked extensively with translation from English to Arabic.
