About Samir

My name is Samir. I am married with three kids. I am originally from Egypt.

I have a bachelor's degree In English literature. I graduated from the Faculty of Education in 1995 with a Bachelor of Education and Arts, Department of English . Then, I worked as an ESL Teacher at Alexandria, Egypt. I worked at Middle Schools for two years. During that period, I taught students English as a Second Language. I was responsible for all the English activities at the school such as the English School Broadcast. I was very patient with the students, especially who need extra help. I always believe that learning a second language is vital for everybody's life. I taught English through songs and acting. My approach in teaching the second language is using the Communicative approach which based on real life situations not just teach using the old Grammar Translation method. After that I was promoted to teach at a high school. I spent about 13 years with the high school students. In 2000 I worked at Mohamed Zahran Experimental Language High School. I taught students both the Ordinary Level and the Advanced Level. I taught them Novel, Drama, Poetry, Grammar and Reading.

In 2009 I applied to participate in a program which was sponsored by the American Councils. This program is called "TCLP" which means "Teachers of Critical Languages". This required me to travel to USA and teach Arabic to the High School Students who are American but interested in learning Arabic. More than 2000 Egyptian teachers applied for that program, but only ten of them were chosen after a lot of exams and interviews. I was one of those who traveled to America to teach Arabic and Middle Eastern Culture. I traveled to Washington DC on the first of August 2009 and stayed there for two weeks orientation to learn how to deal with the American students. Then I traveled to Salt Lake City, Utah to teach at "The Academy of Math, Engineering and Science". There was an Open House Activity before the beginning of the School Year in which I met the students and their parents who were interested in learning Arabic. I showed them some of the teaching materials I brought with me from Egypt . I had useful discussions about the importance of learning Arabic. The result was seventy students enrolled to take Arabic. I spent a good year with my students . I established an Arabic Club over there. At the Club, students were able to learn Arabic indirectly through games, preparing Egyptian food, and a lot of other cultural activities.

Throughout that year I traveled to Boston to attend a conference with the TCLP Staff. I also traveled to New Mexico to attend the SCWOLT Conference and I was lucky to win a new iPad. I was also able to give a lot of lectures at other Elementary, Middle and High Schools about Egypt and the Middle Eastern Culture. After I traveled back to Egypt, my family and I immigrated to live in the USA as permanent residents.

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.


I am a native speaker of Arabic because I was born in Egypt. I have studied all the Arabic rules for 15 years at Egyptian schools. I have worked with the American Councils of Education to teach Arabic to the American, high school students. I have an Educational License from Utah State to teach Arabic because I have have taught there for one year at AMES " Academy for Math, Engineering and Science" High School. I have taught a model lesson at Harvard University.

Study Skills

Study Skills include organization, time management, and research skills. Study skills do not come instinctively to most students. They must be learned. Once they are learned, they open doors for a lifelong learning. Students, who have been acquired good study skills, can work more efficiently and effectively, enjoying their study. There are different areas of study skills such as dictionary skills, outlining, time management, study strategies, test- taking strategies, note-taking, reference skills , and others. We should put into consideration the students’ ages, abilities; potentials, goals, and individualism when we teach our students these study skills. After spending sixteen years, teaching different levels, and different stages, I believe that I have the ability to help my students in their study.

Perfect Choice!

Picking Samir to tutor my daughter was the perfect choice. When my daughter, a senior in High School, told me she wanted to learn Arabic I didn't know where to start. It sounded exciting but I wasn't sure if anyone in our area could teach it. After reading Samir's profile on WyzAnt, we made our first appointment. We are extremely happy with Samir. He is professional, friendly and very patien
