Although I was trained as a mechanical Engineer, literature is the passion of my life. My early encounters with world literature through reading the translations of world masterpieces in Arabic led me to studying German at Goethe institute and later English at the University of Texas at Dallas where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in literary studies. During the period of my undergraduate studies, I edited an online literary Website where I also translated poems and stories from English into Arabic and tutored few students in both Arabic and English through the university.

In 2010 my focus shifted to the translation of Arabic literature into English, so I decided to refine my translation and language skills by working on my master’s degree in literary studies. During that time I have tutored a few students in Arabic, especially those who are interested in literature. I’m good at tutoring on a one to one basis and I’m proud that I have led all the students that I tutored to achieve their goals in learning.

Great tutor, very easy to talk to and very patient — Ali was very easy to work with and talk to. He helped me understand how the process would work, asked me what my goals were, got to know who I am, and allowed for me to feel very comfortable through the lesson. I would recommend Ali for anyone interested in learning about Arabic. ...
