Amherst University of Massachusetts
My name is Sihem and I am a senior at the University of Massachusetts Amherst with an intended BA in Middle Eastern studies and a Political Science minor. I am originally from Algeria but have lived the majority of my life between my home country and France. With French as my first language and Arabic as my second language I cannot think of a better person to teach these languages to any dedicated student. My experience with French culture makes it possible for me to interact with students in a fun and educative way that brings out the engaging side of learning a language that also gives guaranteed results. I have worked as a tutor throughout my four years in college, helping students with advanced French and Arabic papers and translated essays. I also worked for a full semester as a tutor for various subjects at North Star: Self Directed Learning for Teens, an alternative school for middle and high schoolers who feel challenged in a traditional setting. This job gave me the opportunity to work with young teens using alternative and nontraditional utilities to best fit their learning skills. I have taught myself English for years and understand that learning a new language can be very difficult. I also know that with the right methods and a fun environment, the difficulties of a language can be overcome, and I am the right person for this job.

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.
I have lived in Algeria until the age of 19, where Arabic is the official language, and graduated from an Arabic-speaking high school making me an Arabic native speaker. In addition I am a Middle Eastern Studies major at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and one of the requirement is to take a certified Arabic test by junior year. Since I am a senior I have already completed the requirement.
I was born and raised in Algeria, a French colony where the French language is taught since the second grade. In addition, my parents are both French citizens that immigrated to Algeria in 1970's. I also have a French baccalaureate (equivalent of High school diploma) where all the subjects were taught in French along with the tests administrated.
