About Maggie

Teaching is my passion! I've been in this field for the past ten years with students of various age groups, backgrounds and different difficulties. I am bilingual in Arabic and Armenian, and very fluent in English both with my education (Bachelors in English Language & Literature) and experience (English teacher in international schools). Along with my Pedagogic Qualification Diploma, I have attended many educational seminars which prepared me to better deal with students of different ethnicity and studying difficulties. I am a supportive, encouraging, patient, and highly organized person, but also demanding and solid.

Originally Armenian, born in an Arab county with English education, I have a good background in multiculturalism and diversity.

I will do my best to adjust to each student's capacity and needs and bring active lesson plans with suitable educational methods, which will result in a positive learning environment.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 native Arabic speaker from Syria with a remarkable ability to introduce the Arabic language and culture from various perspectives on an academic level, including Modern Standard Arabic and the local Levantine dialect. Coming from Aleppo, Syria, I have a Pedagogic Qualification Diploma and a Bachelors in English Language and Literature.

I have ten years of experience teaching and tutoring the Arabic language to students of various age groups; from kindergarten through undergraduate. I also teach Arabic for non-native adults starting from reading and writing the letters, words and numbers, to creating dialogues and having simple everyday conversations, both in Modern Standard Arabic and the Levantine Syrian dialect using different books like "Ahlan wa Sahlan", "Al-Kitaab fii Taallum al-Arabiyya", and "Arabiyat Al-Naas".

I have good teaching materials which I brought with me from Syria and Lebanon, especially for teaching children and young adults. And I also do a lot of research to prepare appropriate material for making Arabic simple and fun.

English

My Bachelor's Degree in English Language and Literature and the Pedagogic Qualification Diploma, which I earned from the University of Aleppo, qualified me to work as an English subject teacher in different international schools. In Choueifat International School, I had the chance to work both with on-level and weak learners who needed extra attention, help, and different teaching methods to pass to the on-level classes. Along with my work at school, I prepared and brought good English lesson plans to teach the language privately both to kids and to adults, who had difficulty in grasping English grammar and writing.

Great Tutor!!! — Maggie is very patient with me all the time. I learned a lot from her. She helped me on grammar and vocabulary. I can only stay in the US for three months because I have to go back to China, but I would recommend Maggie to anyone as an ESL tutor. ...
