I am an experienced college professor, having taught at The City College, Manhattan College, and the American University in Dubai. I teach communication, film and media courses as well as Arabic both MSA and Levantine. Additionally, I have taught French at the University of North Texas. Some of the courses that I have taught include Introduction to Arabic, Arab Cinema, Mass Media, Introduction to Global Media, Media, Culture and Society, Research Fundamentals, and Games of the Digital World.

I earned my Ph.D. in the humanities from the University of Texas at Dallas in 2009 where my fields of studies were film theory, creative writing, and world literature. I am an alumnus of The New School’s media studies graduate program where I earned my M.A. in 2000. I earned my bachelor's degree at The University of North Texas where I majored in fine arts and design and minored in French.

I am always very well prepared for my tutoring sessions no matter what the subject I am teaching is. I explain the material clearly and always try to make it as interesting as possible. I pace the lesson according to the student's comprehension level. I encourage the student to participate, stimulating and challenging his or her thinking. I am professional and always create an atmosphere that is conducive to learning.

I am experienced in teaching various subjects, including English, Arabic and French as well as preparing students for their college applications.

In addition to English, I am fluent in Arabic and French.

Great Arabic tutor

Louay is a great tutor. He is patient and understanding. If I didn't understand a word, he would first give me a synonym in Arabic which is a great method. He helped me understand a very difficult text, something that gave trouble to previous native speakers I have worked with. He helped me with many colloquialisms that would be very hard to understand on my own.

Great teacher!

Louay taught me Lebanese Arabic and he was so knowledgeable. His explanations of concepts was simple and clear and he was very patient. I would always recommend Louay for teaching.

a very talented language teacher

Even with just one lesson, it is clear that Louay knows how to approach the teaching of language - it's not an easy thing. I feel confident that I will have a very solid base to go forward, and that I will have tools to progress at a good pace.

Michelle, 3 lessons with Louay

Kind and very helpful tutor.

We did a preliminary meeting and assessed my Arabic level, talked about good resources to learn (books and flashcards and translation), and made plans to improve.

Emma, 1 lesson with Louay

Fantastic!

Louay is working with my 13 year old son. He is kind, patient, and goes above and beyond to help my son with his French! Highly recommend! My son's teacher is also very happy with the progress they have made.

Gretchen , 15 lessons with Louay

Always educational and fun.

Each week when I arrive at my lesson with Louay, he is prepared to tackle my goals. He has a deep understanding of the history of the Arabic language, the MENA region, and the challenges of learning a difficult language. He translates this knowledge into accessible methods of teaching and makes the lessons fun. Having worked with Louay for only a few months, I have learned tons about the Levant and the local dialect which previous formal classroom instruction had neglected in lieu of Modern Standard Arabic. Louay took the time to understand my personal language goals and how I plan on using Arabic and each week develops lessons to reach those goals. I look forward to my lessons and am very glad that Louay is my Arabic coach.

Absolutely amazing tutor!

Louay was selected as an Arabic tutor for a 17 y.o. girl after 5 other candidates were interviewed and had a trial class. He was absolutely amazing in comparison and on his own. The task that was set for Louay included reading and writing in Arabic but most importantly - conversational Arabic. He did great with all three fields! He is always on time, always prepared, has a positive attitude and flawless work ethic. Louay also has a great approach to students, he manages to make lessons interesting and engaging, and the progress is visible! I would recommend Louay without hesitation to anyone in search of a quality tutor with excellent teaching record and reliability.

Great Tutor and Very Patient

I honestly only have good things to say about Louay and definitely recommend him as an Arabic tutor. He's not only a native speaker and have an incredible knowledge of the history of the language, he is also very good at teaching it, which is hard to come by (I speak from experience). He's a very patient instructor, but was also understanding when I would have to cancel due to work commitments. He was also very open to focusing on vocabulary that was more relevant to my work (which is why I am taking Arabic) and tailoring the lessons to be relevant to my interests. I am a beginner but I think he would be good at teaching any level of Arabic.
