About Naim

Hi! Yes, I am a language nerd. I enjoy learning new languages and teaching English. I am proficient in Arabic (Lebanese/Egyptian) and French and am learning Spanish. I graduated with an B.S. in Finance.

I tutor all levels of Arabic and French reading and writing.

Benjamin Franklin best summed up my teaching/tutoring philosophy: "Tell me, and I'll forget. Teach me, and I'll remember. Involve me, and I'll learn." I believe that we must all be active participants in our learning, and sometimes that means that we have to step out of our comfort zones and try something new. Each time I learned a new language, I used a different method. Some methods are harder than others, but when you work hard and persist, you will have success. Sometimes my methods are a little unconventional, like telling students to listen to 30 minutes of NPR to improve vocabulary and listening skills, but I like using authentic language, and I never suggest anything that I have not tried. I also like to account for different learning styles, so I do tend to incorporate different things depending on what the student's learning style is. I also love to use the technology available to me during the session, but I don't believe in over-relying on it.

Although I have been tutoring/teaching adults for years, I am always open to new ideas. I really appreciate feedback and honesty. That's why I love to have relaxed sessions where the student can feel comfortable to tell me if something works or not. A good tutoring sessions is one where the student's needs were met in a way that suites him/her. The only way for a tutor to know what works best for a particular student is to ask the student and receive an honest answer. If the student isn't sure, then talking and working together usually brings the student's preferences to light.

Hope to work with you soon!
