About Shayla

I have a passion for learning and a bigger passion for teaching. I understand that there are different ways to learn different subjects. I've learned the hard way that it takes time and repetition to learn and retain a foreign language, which is why I've continued studying years after graduating.



I specialize in Arabic studies. I graduated from the Defense Language Institute (DLI) in November 2012 where I was under the instruction of native Arab professors. I have been working as a linguist since then. Beyond the language, I have also studied Arabic culture and customs throughout the Arab world. During my studies at DLI, I tutored other Sailors and together we saw an overall increase in unit test scores.

I believe in 1-on-1 sessions so that your personal needs can be met accurately and to not unnecessarily elongate sessions. To ensure that both you and I feel comfortable and safe I would hold sessions in a public library, near you. This will also help ensure a quiet learning environment free from distractions. If my tutoring services do not provide you with the help that you need, you will not be billed for the session. Additionally, I highly encourage feedback!

I look forward to tutoring you and fulfilling your Arabic language needs!

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've been studying Arabic for 5 years. I attended the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California from July 2011 to November 2012, graduating from an intensive 63-week language course. I take the Defense Language Proficiency Test annually in both reading an listening skills. I've passed Modern Standard Arabic, Iraqi Arabic, Levantine Arabic, and Egyptian Arabic tests.
