About Touria

I am a teacher by trade however I did other jobs such as costumer service. I graduated from CAP in 1980 and I came to the USA with my ex husband. We lived in many states and countries because he was a soldier in the Army. I worked for AAFES most of our military bases. I enjoyed two overseas stations, where my ex husband was stationed, Greece once and Germany twice. I worked for AAFES and the university of Maryland as a registrar

And most importantly, I worked at Big Bend Community College as an Arabic teacher for our special forces. I was blessed to work for our Coalition Forces in Iraq from 2006 to 2011. I wasn't only a linguist/ translator but I did conferences as well for one of our Lt Col at the time. He is a Colonel today. I was invited to meet his family in Fort Hood and that is a great honor.

I am currently on call whenever I am needed to teach Arabic or French for our National Guard/Camp Bullis in San Antonio, TX. I have done more tutoring in San Antonio, Texas before I left to Iraq in 2006. I was recommended by many parents to other parents in the community. I tutored all levels from 1st grade students to all grades in middle school and high school.

I had to move to Austin because of one of my girls who thinks that Austin has more opportunities for me as far as my teaching and tutoring. I believe that tutoring and teaching go hand in hand although tutoring may be one on one focus to capture the student's total attention and curiosity. That was always my goal either in a classroom setting of many students or one. The goal is to convey the matter at hand to the student and gain his/her interest, totally. I have tutored French and Arabic to students who hired me because they heard about my methods with all ages of my students. My goal is to help the students of all ages and various background to enjoy the language that they have chosen to learn.

I am also pursuing a degree in psychology in order to help my students and be their role model either in the classroom or out of the classroom. I am totally dedicated and committed to my mission as a teacher or a tutor.

Thank you, Touria

My student is very observant and that tells me a lot about his full attention in my class. My plan is to convey the message, at all times, in order to achieve the goal with all my students.

Gaius, I believe that students like you make me go the extra mile without any hesitations. My goal is to make you see what I see and together we can achieve the ultimate goal.

Thank you

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.

Arabic

I have been certified as an elementary school Arabic teacher since 1980.
In fact, I worked in Omar Alkhayyam, high school and in Oum El Banine, middle school in Rabat, Morocco from 1974 to 1980 as an administrator.

I have also worked for Big Bend community college as a registrar and an Arabic teacher/tutor for our special forces in Augsburg, Germany.

During my teaching or tutoring experiences, I learned to engage the students constantly in the subject matter without boring them. Plus, I kept them not only engaged but interested in the language they want to learn and master in a unique and a fun way.

The improvement of the students is proof that such methods work basically with most students if you interact with them during the tutoring sessions at all times. Students are in dire need for consistent teachers/tutors.

Thank you, Touria

She is very perticular about the pronounciation of each word in French. She is very detail oriented and has lots of patience.
