About Ala

I've always had a passion for helping others. During college I spent my working hours in a variety customer service positions. However, when I began teaching last year, I've realized my true passion stems from helping others achieve their utmost potential.

I began teaching the QuickBooks and Microsoft Excel courses at Computer Systems Institute in April 2015. Since then, I've received numerous compliments from both management and colleagues, of my ability to keep students engaged on the subject matter, mostly due to the energy I bring into each class session. I love teaching. My class size is around 30, but i make sure to give each student the one-on-one attention they need to succeed.

Although raised most years of my life in the U.S., I have a Arabic tongue similar to that of a native speaker. I have attended Sunday school to learn Arabic during my childhood years, and continue to read articles in Arabic. I have a fundamental understanding of basic grammar rules and a clear deep voice to help you master the "Glottal Stop".

I am currently working as an Adjunct Instructor at Computer Systems Institute teaching ESL Adult learners software programs such as QuickBooks Accountant and Microsoft Excel.

My undergraduate degree is in Accounting, and my current pursuit of the CPA designation has helped deepen and solidify my understanding of various accounting concepts.
