I love teaching Arabic. It is music, math, poetry, prose, and just a really cool language to learn! I teach all language skills (listening, reading, writing, and speaking) in a way that is personally meaningful to my students. I have taught all language levels of Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), and am proficient in Levantine and Egyptian dialects.
Working with students, including elementary school kids, is a joy for me. My student evaluations are stellar!
As a tutor, I have worked with both students and professionals to tailor their study to their individual needs, whether it is conversational, curricular, or a quick review.
In addition to Arabic, I am a native speaker of English. I received my undergraduate degree in English and Biology (Univ. of Michigan), and my two Master's degrees in Middle East Studies and Comparative Literature (Columbia University).
I enjoy humor, reading,science, working with elementary school kids, cooking Mediterranean food, sports and the outdoors!
