When we meet, we usually just practice conversation (my preference) but he also is attentive to explain grammar and vocabulary issues. Alaa speaks clearly and intentionally enunciates difficult syllables in a manner most Arabic speakers overlook when tutoring a language-learner. Alaa also demonstrates patience and an encouraging spirit, both of which are uplifting for students. I strongly recommend Alaa for any beginner, intermediate or advanced Arabic speaker.
She is a business professional and does an amazing job at delivering an encouraging learning experience, for my son. 1/8/2014: Tonight was my son's final lesson with Carole before his SSAT, which will be in two days. We feel so fortunate that we had Carole and my son is feeling a lot more confident in his ability to perform well in the exam. couldn't ask for a better tutor!! She genuinely cares about her students and is truly committed and encouraging!!
She creates an amazing environment in which to learn and feel comfortable in even when I make mistakes. She is always very encouraging, but especially when I lose patience with myself. I highly recommend Reem as an Arabic tutor; she is thorough in her teachings and explanations and helps you grasp the language quickly. She makes learning Arabic fun to the point where you can’t wait until your next lesson!
