About Noor

I have loved language-learning my whole life, and that's translated into a love of teaching it! Growing up speaking three languages, I know how useful it is to rely on that ability to communicate with a wide array of people. I now speak five, and have worked as a tutor for all of them over the past four years, especially in Spanish and Arabic. I also have two years of experience as a middle school Spanish teacher, and that really filled me with joy! Being able to watch my students "get it" was one of the most satisfying feelings in the world. I use a lot of methods for explaining topics, as every person is different and learns in different ways; some kids prefer to write, some prefer to draw, and some prefer games. Of course, the list goes on, and that's the best part of tutoring! That is, finding out exactly what a student needs in order to really understand the topic.

I'm a native Arabic speaker, and I speak Spanish and Portuguese fluently. I started learning Spanish when I was five, and continued studying it and practicing it for my whole life. I also lived in Brazil for eight months where I taught English, and left there fluent in Portuguese.

My love for language obviously extends to a very nerdy love of grammar, literature, writing, reading, syntax, vocabulary, and all of those other facets of language. English, being one of my native languages, has received special attention from my brain and studies, and I love explaining all of the little quirky details of its grammar and vocabulary.

Please feel free to contact me to find out more about how I can get you to really speak a language and why it's especially important to bolster the language skills you already have! Due to my teaching experience, I know firsthand that, as long as a student is getting the proper attention and resources, they can learn any language that they want.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I worked as an ESL teacher in Brazil for one year, and have two years of teaching experience aside from that. I have also tutored ESL for three years.

Portuguese

I took several Portuguese classes in college, but really solidified my skill in the language when I lived in Rio de Janeiro for a year. Portuguese is a very interesting and fun language to speak, and I relish the chance to teach it to others. I've found that the best way to teach a language is through immersion, which is when lessons are conducted fully or primarily in the language. This works excellently for Portuguese!

Spanish

I've been speaking Spanish since I was a kid, and have five years of experience tutoring in Spanish, as well as two years of experience as a middle school Spanish teacher.
