About Ava


Bio

I'm a native speaker of Arabic, educated in Yemen for nine years (1st to 9th grade), where I learned Modern Standard Arabic with grammar as well as Classical. I have 6 years experience tutoring Arabic on this website and independently, with over 10 years of experience overall (English, science/math). I have taught all levels of Arabic from beginner to advanced. I'm familiar with all major dialects of Arabic.

Spanish-speaking students: Si hablas espanol, puedo hablar en espanol tambien aunque no sea perfectamente. Hay similitudes entre el arabe y el espanol que me encantaria compartir contigo.

French-speaking students: Je parle un petit peu de francais. Si vous souhaitez faire un echange linguistique, nous pouvons le faire gratuitement.

I love to see my students gain confidence in their Arabic. I don't believe in lecturing, but rather foster an active learning environment. I incorporate various methods and resources into the lesson, such as field assignments, movies, videos, music, useful worksheets, and anything that will get you to understand and retain information better. I spend a considerable amount of time preparing each lesson. Memorization is never the answer and I will rarely ask you to memorize anything. Instead, you will remember through the spaced repetition technique and other methods.

I customize my tutoring to your own needs and goals. Every lesson I deliver is specially made to fit your goals. I have experience working with students of varying learning styles, including visual learners, students on the spectrum, and students with ADHD. I will make every attempt to tailor the lesson to your learning style and maximize your potential!

I'm excited to get to know you and to help on your journey of learning Arabic!

I'm a native Arabic speaker with professional tutoring experience. I also speak Spanish and can help you see similarities between Arabic and Spanish. I completed middle school and some high school in the Middle East in Arabic language, where I learned Modern Standard Arabic with grammar as well as Classical. I have substituted for an Arabic language teacher and taught his class in his absence. I also tutored at the Arabic language department at Hunter College in NYC.

Patient, charismatic, and articulate tutor!

Ava is a great tutor! She lays out lesson plans in a very comprehensible manner, is very flexible, and answers questions thoroughly. You can tell she is a very dedicated tutor and creates a fun and welcoming atmosphere for learning Arabic.

Jazmin, 11 lessons with Ava

Amazing tutor

Ava is extremely patient and clear with me. I had a hard time at first with reading and writing and she found various ways to help me understand including graphics. Her skills are superb and she inspires me to practice and be better with each lesson. I look forward to continue working with her.

Christina, 3 lessons with Ava

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

I enjoyed my first lesson with Ava. We worked on the alphabet for the first lesson. She is very patient and took the time to discuss my goals and expectations to ensure whether or not she would be a good fit.
