About Zaghla

I was born and raised in Algeria which is located in North Africa. My native language is Arabic. While in school, I studied different subjects such as Math, Science, and Social Studies in Arabic. I also had French as a second language. This was useful when I studied medicine during in college.

My experience in teaching started when I was a little girl. I used to listen to the conversation between my father and my Aunt (who used to live with us in the same house) who were both teachers, and they used to discuss teaching problems. My Aunt, who was new in the teaching field used to ask my father for advice when she was facing a problem. For instance, I started practicing teaching when I was in primary school when I helped my siblings with their homework and then when I was in 7th grade (middle school), I taught Math and Arabic Language Arts to a sixth grade student. The student was the daughter of my father's friend who asked my father to help his daughter with Math and Language Arts because he wanted her to pass the primary school's test (known as la "six eme" which literally translates sixth in English). My father himself asked me to teach the girl because he believed that I have patience for teaching and that I could do it. Even though I was young, and any girl in my age (11 years old) would prefer to go outside and play with her friends after a long school day, I was patient, resilient and serious to do the job as the girl was serious about learning. I taught her every day, except for the weekends, from 5pm to 6pm,and the results were fascinating. She passed the test at the end of the year and she was able to go to the middle school. She was the first one among her siblings to pass the test and to be accepted in middle school.

After graduating from college, I got married and immigrated with my family to another country in the Middle East. I was asked to teach French to kids who were 7, 8 , 9 and 10 years old as an after school activity. I was responsible to make a curriculum that was individualized to every student's needs. I taught for three years, the kids were brilliant and they were learning fast. The parents were so pleased with the result that they asked me to continue teaching them the following year, but my family and I were preparing to immigrate to the U.S., I apologized for not being able to do that the following year.

I have kids of my own. I helped them to do their homework and they made it to college. One went to the University of Georgia (UGA), and the other went to Georgia Tech.

If you want your kid not just to speak, read and write Arabic or French, but to be fluent as well, consider me.

Looking forward to seeing you kids in class!

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.
