I have been tutoring three languages for over 25 years. I teach French, English as a Second Language, and Arabic. I also teach Elementary Spanish. I teach conversation, vocabulary, reading, and writing. I am very particular about speaking a language. I keep working on it until it is perfect. Pronunciation is very, very important when you learn a foreign language. I went to French schools since I was eight years old. Later on, when I was a teenager, I went to British Council School. I have an English language certificate from Cambridge. At age 17 I worked at the French Embassy. I was the executive secretary of the French Commercial Attaché. I have spoke Arabic since birth.

Golf

I am a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist. I was certified in 1996. I work with golfers to lower their scores, improve their swings and keep being positive even if they have few bad shots.

Public Speaking

I have been a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist for 19 years. I have worked with hundreds of people who needed help for public speaking.
I worked with different categories of public speaking;
1- Dealing with the fear of public speaking and alleviate it.
2- Giving them tools that will enable them to succeed in their public speaking.
3- Reviewing their public speaking content and making sure they are comfortable with every word in it.

Public Speaking is the number one fear in the country. I have helped a lot of people in that field.
Everybody's problem is different and depends on his or her situation. My students have had a lot of
success with their Public Speaking.

I have been doing Ballroom and Latin dancing for over 18 years. I was trained by a great Russian coach who trains professionals and celebrities. I have also been doing Belly Dancing for over 30 years. I love Salsa; it is an interesting and fun dance.

Study Skills

I love working with children. I am very patient with them. Whenever we need to, we work a lot on repetition to succeed with our goal. We also work a lot on pronunciation and the way we deliver
our words. Sometimes we play together to deliver a message to the subconscious mind, to make
It more acceptable. Children do love me because I take good care of them and I love them.

I have been tutoring for more than 25 years. I have an English certificate from Cambridge
University. I am very loving and attentive to details. I have taught children as well as adults.
Learning and teaching are a good experience for me and my students. I have excellent communication skills. I have expertise in a variety of approaches including enunciation and pronunciation with both reading and writing. It makes me happy helping people and seeing them learn and succeed.
