I am an Arabic and Hebrew native speaker. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree from Brandeis University in Politics and two minors in Peace, Conflict and Coexistence Studies and Near Eastern and Judaic Studies and a Master's degree from George Mason University in Conflict Analysis and Resolution.
I enjoy teaching and facilitating the learning process. In my classroom, I integrate language, culture, and history in my lessons. I have taught a wide range of students and professionals with varying degrees of Arabic and Hebrew language skills ranging from the beginners to the advanced level. I have also taught Arabic dialects, mainly Levantine, and helped my students polish their spoken language through pronunciation exercises and conversations. I have taught Arabic at the Arlington Central Public Library from 2011-2012, where I led the Arabic Language Conversation Group and integrated media, news articles and discussion forums to expand the student's exposure to the language and to build vocabulary. Also, I was Arabic Teaching Assistant at the Arabic and Hebrew Department at Brandeis University, from 2003-2006.
