About Rami

I am a young, eager tutor that graduated in the spring of 2011 from the prestigious Rhodes College in Memphis, TN. I excelled in my studies there, graduating cum laude with a 3.7 overall GPA, a 3.9 major GPA, and having completed honors research. During my time at Rhodes I tutored in math and English at Memphis Refugee Services for 5 months. This is in addition to tutoring at a local center within my religious community in math and English during my entire 4 years at Rhodes.

After graduating, I worked as a Research Assistant at the prestigious American Institutes of Research in Washington D.C for one year from 2011 to 2012. The research area I focused on primarily dealt with education.

The sum of my experiences informs my ability and skill as a tutor that is easy to get along with and can convey complex ideas to students by developing an understanding for their skills and how best to facilitate their comprehension of the material they may have some trouble with.

Though I can tutor in reading, writing, ESL, and SAT prep, I specialize in tutoring Arabic. I can teach Arabic at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. I studied Arabic overseas in Egypt, Jordan*, and Lebanon over the course of 2 years, in addition to my 2 years in the states studying the language in great detail. I am also beginning my master's in Arabic Studies starting in the fall of 2014.

*I received particular recognition by the Qasid program located in Jordan, having been interviewed and featured on their home page.

Approved subjects

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.

Arabic

I studied Arabic overseas in Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon over the course of about 2 years. I received the prestigious Buckman Scholarship to study in Egypt at the American University in Cairo in the spring semester of 2010. I also studied in Amman, Jordan the summer of that year at Qasid Institute. I received particular recognition by the Qasid program, having been interviewed and featured on their home page.

Lastly, I studied at Global University in Beirut, Lebanon from summer of 2012 to the summer of 2013.

In addition to my abroad experience in the language, I studied Arabic for 2 years in the states during my undergraduate career at Rhodes College. I will also begin my master's in Arabic Studies starting in the fall of 2014.

The courses I took over the course of my 4 years of intensive study cover a wide variety of topics related to the Arabic language. I studied grammar, morphology, Arabic literature, Arabic poetry, Arabic rhetoric, elocution, media studies, and more. I also memorized and took a detailed explanation of a text in classical Arabic called Al-Ajurumiyyah, a work that is studied at the master's and PhD level in Arab Studies programs. The fact that I have mastered this text prior to even entering a postgraduate program in Arabic very clearly evidences my skill in the field.

Furthermore, in 2011, I began teaching Arabic on Saturdays at a local middle school in Virginia and at a mosque in Maryland on Sundays every week between September of 2011 until June of 2012 with kids ranging in age from 7 to 17. I am currently teaching Intermediate Arabic at a local community center in Memphis, TN on Saturdays as well.
