About Marina

I am a graduate student at Tufts University pursuing an MA in Law and Diplomacy. For the past few years I've worked on U.S. Foreign Policy in the Middle East in D.C. where the Arabic language was essential to my job responsibilities. I have had experience tutoring Middle School, High School, and college students for the past six years. While in Washington, I was responsible for preparing young professionals in Career development opportunities across the district. I assisted international and domestic students by proofreading resumes, helping them prepare for interviews, negotiate starting salaries, and gain access to job sites.

My hobbies include Zumba and Salsa dancing, cooking, traveling!

For the past three years, I have used Arabic-English translations to conduct my day to day job responsibilities in D.C. I have experience tutoring Middle School, High School, and college students in Arabic. I also have a minor in Arabic from the University of Arizona's department of Middle Eastern and North African Studies. I lived in Cairo for a number of years and just came back from a Summer in Morocco.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions (no matter what level you are at-- all are encouraged!) I am more than happy to chat about possible tutoring options.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 minored in Arabic as an undergraduate at the University of Arizona.

For the past three years, I have translated and transcribed news sources and interviews from English to Arabic and from Arabic to English in a professional setting.

For the past six years, I tutored Middle School, High School, and College students in Arabic.

I spent ten years living in the Middle East.

Career Development

As part of an Academic and Internship program for young professionals in DC, I helped plan and implement career development opportunities for 500+ people every semester.

I helped students brush up their resumes, getting a head start on writing cover letters, improve their interview skills, and educate them on salary negotiations.

I was in charge of establishing programs targeting career development opportunities including graduate school, funding, and job search techniques. I gave frequent seminars to students and young professionals as part of the training.

Salsa Dancing

Since 2011, I have choreographed dances including salsa for non-formal college competitions.

I have been dancing Salsa for the past 10 years and have received personal training from a columbian teacher who now travels the globe to teach salsa classes.

I taught Salsa beginner and intermediate classes in lower-income communities in Arizona.
