Bio

Hello! I am in graduate school currently studying literature, specializing in Arabic and English. My favorite classes have always been the ones where professors have been obviously passionate in their own subject, and their interests are what sparked my own in new fields and languages.

Hello! I am in graduate school currently studying literature, specializing in Arabic and English. My favorite classes have always been the ones where professors have been obviously passionate in their own subject, and their interests are what sparked my own in new fields and languages. I translate this attitude to my teaching philosophy and ensure that my lessons are engaging. I use lesson plans that introduce topics clearly and creatively that include both my teaching of the student and the student actively engaging in the material themselves.

I have been teaching and tutoring for seven years and am familiar with the goals and challenges for students of all different ages and backgrounds. I have a Masters in Comparative Literature.

I have experience teaching Arabic at the university level in my own classroom and have had a mixture of native speakers, heritage speakers, and foreign language learners with no previous linguistic knowledge. I therefore tailor my classes to meet the needs of the particular student and their interests. I teach the core skills of speaking, listening, reading, and writing according to national foreign language teaching standards.

I also specialize in English language and literature and ESL teaching. In my teaching, I convey to students that clear and masterful language skills are the gateways to both personal and professional opportunities. I teach through reading and discussion, so that students may more passively learn technical skills such as grammar and syntax by actively reading and analyzing authentic and diverse texts.

It is my goal to ensure that the lesson material is enjoyable and useful to students, and so I welcome students to suggest materials and resources that they are interested in. I am easy to reach and quick with responses, so please don't hesitate to send a message!

SAT Writing

I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature and teach Arabic, English, and other subjects in the Humanities. I focus on teaching students about structure, word choice, and grammatical concepts, so that students are able to recognize written work that is concise, effective, and appropriate for the target audience. As a graduate student, I have taken all of the necessary standardized tests myself; therefore, I am aware of their format and purpose and can aid students in understanding how these qualities can help test-takers with the assessment.
