Not only do I have a degree in Arabic, but as a native Arabic speaker I am also well-versed in both Colloquial Arabic and Classical/Modern Standard Arabic. I have over ten years of experience working in the field of education as an Arabic teacher, Arabic curriculum coordinator, and Arabic tutor. I have lived in and traveled extensively to the Middle-East. I bring both my expertise in Arabic as well as my passion for the culture to every lesson which provides for a well-rounded session every time.

Arabic

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.
