Northwestern University (Middle East Studies)
I'm currently a senior at Northwestern University, majoring in Middle East and North African Studies. I spent the full academic year studying Arabic in an intensive, immersive program in Alexandria, Egypt 2012-2013, and I am applying to return to study and work there after I graduate in June. In addition to my studies abroad, I have studied Arabic at Northwestern for three years. I am currently enrolled in an independent study because I tested out of the highest level of classes the university offers, through the fourth year. I am also working on a translation of a recent collection of short stories by an Egyptian author.
While currently residing in the Evanston area for school, I will be in the San Francisco Bay Area in December and early January and thus will be able to tutor in that area as well.

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.
I graduated summa cum laude from Northwestern University with a major in Middle East and North African Studies. I studied Arabic for five years, over two of which were abroad in Amman, Jordan and Egypt (mostly in Alexandria, but also in Cairo and Sinai). Honors include the Center for Arabic Studies Abroad Fellowship (administered by Harvard University) and the Boren Scholarship, which I used for the Middlebury intensive Arabic program. I have translated two books from Arabic to English and am working on publishing them.
