I would like to offer my services and the opportunity to learn new languages and to understand the functionality of the government and world history - three subjects that I will be glad to share with my students. I'm a native speaker of Arabic, obtained a law degree in Arabic and then came to the US, became a citizen and obtained my master's in law from the University of Iowa, College of Law. I taught Arabic while in Iowa. My language and translations services are practical for all sorts of students, business people, travelers, government and military personnel and employees. I'm also certified and taught World history and Government and Politics.

I look forward to discuss further and share my expertise and how I can customize it to fit your goals.

Jamil’s subjects


My native language is Arabic. I was born in Beirut, Lebanon, in the Middle East. I studied Law in Arabic at Cairo University, Egypt. I came to the United States immediately after, became a US citizen and went and studied law at the University of Iowa, in Iowa City, IA. I taught Arabic in Iowa and worked as an RA to a professor there as an Arabic language research specialist. I have worked in multilingual call centers in the area here in DC, and I'm looking to go back to teaching, and eventually, hopefully, full time. I noticed a wealth of opportunities and ads here for Arabic language requests. If requested, I will also be glad to provide you with any translations that you need.

Government & Politics

Government and politics are two sides to the same coin. To understand the function of our government now and historically, we need to know the politics and policies behind the function of government. The premise of the government is to be a tool to act on behalf of its people; politics on the other hand is the wheel that drives the government. Politics make the process move and gives mechanism to otherwise what could end up as a rigid set of bureaucracy and routine.

World History

My name is Jamil S; I’m offering and am certified to offer languages, government and history lessons. My specialty is modern world history; I have two law degrees, first from Cairo Law School, and a master's from the University of Iowa in Iowa City. I write on the side on politics, current affairs and I look at history as a going and interconnected chain of events and people. History is the address of any nation, and to understand, one must live it, and see it from the eyes of those that made it. I look forward to hear from you and see and learn how I can benefit you.
