Bio

I have spent nearly 10 years teaching students of different ages and learning styles in a variety of different subjects. For my undergraduate schooling, I attended the University of Texas at Austin on a full ride scholarship and graduated with honors after majoring in both Middle Eastern Languages and Cultures (Arabic) and Psychology.

I have spent nearly 10 years teaching students of different ages and learning styles in a variety of different subjects. For my undergraduate schooling, I attended the University of Texas at Austin on a full ride scholarship and graduated with honors after majoring in both Middle Eastern Languages and Cultures (Arabic) and Psychology. While there, I studied under Mahmoud Al-Batal and Kristen Brustad, the authors of the prolific, widely-used Al-Kitaab textbook series. I have lived in the Arab world, and I specialize in the Levantine dialect (Syrian, Lebanese, Jordanian, and Palestinian) as well as Modern Standard Arabic (MSA). I would more than love to tutor you or your children in the Arabic language and culture.

If you live in my travel vicinity, I will travel to your location. If you live outside of my travel range, I am more than willing to accommodate you with an online lesson via Wyzant's video chat. I make my Arabic lessons relevant to real life, and I tailor each course to my student's individual ability and goals. I apply my psychology training to my lessons, and my educational/cognitive psychology theory and research in order to make the most efficient, rewarding experience for my students.

That said, my courses are intensive, and I recommend at least two sessions per week. I make study materials for each student at no extra charge, and my goal is to get each student to a point of proficiency where they are able to continue their learning without an instructor.

Highly skilled and knowledgeable tutor

Aaron is an exceptional tutor for the Arabic language. He provides a professional, thoughtful and methodical approach to his instruction to meet you where you are and ensure continuous development and improvement. His approach is based on a strong academic foundation, which in turn, has enabled me to build a solid platform for the language. This academic perspective is also combined with a practical approach, which is essential as I prepare for my next business visit to the Middle East. Aaron is a pleasure to work with, and after several months of instruction I look forward to continuing on this journey with him.

Highly recommend

Aaron was super accommodating, flexible and a great communicator. Really knows his Arabic, yet makes students feel at ease. Went above and beyond in very first session to spend extra time preparing for an upcoming quiz. Positive and encouraging!

Comfortable

We had technical difficulties but we managed to communicate and he was a great teacher! I understood right away he was able to understand me when I would compare it with Spanish. I am looking forward to more lessons I know I'll be able to keep up with the way he teaches.

Encouraging and Patient Arabic Teacher

Aaron is a great teacher! He created study sets specifically tailored to my interests and learning preferences, and he is always patient and encouraging. He not only speaks Arabic super well, he also understands the intricacies of how to teach it well, which is hard to find in a tutor. I feel super optimistic about improving my Arabic with Aaron!
