About Philip

I am currently a graduate student in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN, and in the Arabic Studies M.A. track at Middlebury College's Summer Arabic School. I have tutored friends and colleagues unofficially through the years, and have studied Arabic teaching techniques at the graduate level. The thing I love about tutoring is that it can take the drudgery out of language learning, and turn a simple conversation in the target language into a whole new, encouraging experience. It is my conviction that learning a language is highly dependent upon creating a friendly, positive environment in which to learn, and application of relevant research in the service of the student. Tutoring also provides for tailored activities that help the student reach for his or her personal goals.

What makes me an outstanding language tutor is that I am aware of what it takes to make it to high levels of proficiency in Arabic. I have faced many of the same challenges you as a student of the language are going through. Having experienced the challenge of learning Arabic from zero, I can help you make it to where you want to be.

Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss tutoring, to learn more about how I might structure the lessons, or if you are ready, to schedule one!!

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 have studied Arabic at the undergraduate and graduate level, and have gained a high level of proficiency. I have taken courses on Arabic Pedagogy generally and as it relates to teaching Dialects. I also have lived in the Middle East for a total of 12 months during the past four years.

Farsi

I have studied Farsi for one year at the graduate level at Indiana University, Bloomington. I have studied teaching methodology at Indiana University and at Middlebury College's Arabic Language School. My tutoring experience until now has been informal, and mostly in Arabic.
