About Mohtady

My name is Mohtady, but feel free to call me Moh. I was born in Kuwait and raised in Jordan. I've been living in America since 2008. I have a lovely wife and three beautiful children (16yr, 13yr, & 3yr). By profession, I'm a Software Engineer and Web Designer. I've recently been working contract jobs and I'm currently working with Hewlett Packard. While I was living in Jordan I taught Arabic to Americans who had relocated there for work. I also taught for two years at my children's school here in Sacramento (a fully accredited elementary, middle, and high school). This school teaches children Arabic starting in kindergarten so, of course, over the years I've helped tutor my own children in Arabic. It's been rewarding but often challenging especially when they were very young and didn't understand the value of having Arabic as a second language. I can't tell you how many times I heard "it's just too hard" but we got through those bumps; I'm extremely patient when I teach. Now that my daughter is in high school and my son in middle school, I'm happy to say they are both fluent in Arabic with reading and writing! They're also beginning to understand what a gift it is to be bi-lingual. And now I get to start all over again with my little one :) I have a real passion for teaching! I believe learning should be fun, challenging and rewarding. In my lifetime I've had a lot of teachers and the teachers' who did their best to keep students engaged and motivated stand out the most because I learned the most from them! I will work at the students pace but I will also strive to help the student push hard to achieve their full potential. I would like to congratulate you on your decision to learn Arabic! Just some fun facts for you: "There are over 350 million Arabic speakers today, making it the fifth most-commonly spoken language in the world." "Enrollment in Arabic language courses grew by 126.5% from 2002 to 2006 and then again by another 46.3% between 2006 and 2009 – the most recent period for which survey data is available. That makes Arabic the fastest-growing area of foreign language study in the US, by far." (Source: Modern Language Association) So just in case you weren't sure you made the right decision, those facts should definitely help! Your future is bright! The influence of the Middle East in politics and economics just continues to grow, so the job market for Arabic speakers will as well." I'm excited to teach, so if you're ready to have some fun learning Arabic, give me a call. I'm very flexible and will meet you for sessions wherever you feel comfortable. Due to my full time job, I will need to schedule sessions after 5 on weekdays but I'm completely open on weekends.

I look forward to teaching you! You've made a great decision. The need for professionals who can speak Arabic continues to grow at a very rapid pace. Call me today and let's start learning!!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Arabic

I am a University graduate. I taught Arabic to American professionals living in Jordan for three years 2005-2007. I taught high school for two years at Al-Arqam in Sacramento. (A fully accredited elementary, middle, and high school). 2008/2009. Arabic is my first language so I am fluent in reading, writing, and speaking Arabic. I also speak all dialects of Arabic. I have a unique and exciting way of teaching. Two of my children have been taking Arabic since Kindergarten and I've been tutoring them along the way. I've seen what works and what doesn't, both from their Arabic teachers and me as their tutor. It's really helped me to tweak my style to fit the individual and start them off with something that excites and inspires them. I'm a Software Engineer by profession and currently employed with Hewlett Packard.
