About Neil

I am fluent in Spanish and have tested multiple times at the 3 Reading and 3 Listening level on the Defense Language Proficiency Test (DLPT 5). My background in Arabic stems from learning Quranic Arabic in college and Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) both in Tunisia and at the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center (DLIFLC) while in the Army. I have used Arabic for the past ten years of my professional career in varying capacities. I also have several years of teaching English as a Second Language domestically and in South Korea.

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 began studying classical Arabic in 1994 in college. I attended a study abroad in Tunisia at the Bourguiba Institute of Living Languages. I studied for two years at the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center (DLI/FLC) at the Presidio-of-Monterey, CA and graduated among the top ten students in my class of 50. I worked for several years as a translator for the Army. After separating from service, I worked in several positions which utilized my Arabic skills. I have experience in working with Modern Standard Arabic and Iraqi dialect.
