I am a former Arabic instructor at Brigham Young University, who specializes in tutoring Modern Standard Arabic and Levantine Arabic/ I am rated at the DLPT 3 level/Superior level in Modern Standard Arabic and have used the language in a variety of educational and professional settings:

Language Education:

I have a B.A. from Brigham Young University with a Double Major in Middle Eastern Studies/Arabic and Arabic language; I completed an overseas Study at the Qasid Arabic Institute in Amman, Jordan; and am a National Security Education Program Boren Scholar (Fall 2011, Arabic). I also hold a Master's in Public Policy/International Affairs from Brigham Young University

Professional Language Experience:
I currently serve as an Arabic Interpreter for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and previously worked as an Arabic Instructor at Brigham Young University teaching second-year Modern Standard Arabic and Levantine Arabic, with a strong emphasis on grammar and voweling.

Language Test Scores:
On the Defense Language Proficiency Test in Modern Standard Arabic I received a rating of 3 in speaking, 3 in Listening and a 3+ in Reading. These scores roughly correspond to the ACTFL Superior level.

French

I speak French conversationally, and learned it while working with French-speaking Mauritian immigrants in London, England. Since, I have had the opportunity to work with French-Canadians, Haitians, and Congolese in Washington, D.C.

Despite the prevalence of other varieties of French in my description above, I am also familiar with Parisian French, since I have many French colleagues and friends, and have traveled to Paris.

Spanish

I have an Advanced-Level Language Certificate in Spanish from the Brigham Young University Center for Language Studies. I scored Advanced-Low in speaking and Advanced-Mid in writing on the American Council on the Teaching Foreign Languages (ACTFL) proficiency scale.

I have used Spanish academically, through taking several 300-level courses at BYU, and have also used it in real life, while working with Latin Americans in Southern London, England as a volunteer for my church.
