Bio

Although I was trained as a mechanical Engineer, literature is the passion of my life. My early encounters with world literature through reading the translations of world masterpieces in Arabic led me to studying German at Goethe institute and later English at the University of Texas at Dallas where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in literary studies.

Although I was trained as a mechanical Engineer, literature is the passion of my life. My early encounters with world literature through reading the translations of world masterpieces in Arabic led me to studying German at Goethe institute and later English at the University of Texas at Dallas where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in literary studies. During the period of my undergraduate studies, I edited an online literary Website where I also translated poems and stories from English into Arabic and tutored few students in both Arabic and English through the university.

In 2010 my focus shifted to the translation of Arabic literature into English, so I decided to refine my translation and language skills by working on my master’s degree in literary studies. During that time I have tutored a few students in Arabic, especially those who are interested in literature. I’m good at tutoring on a one to one basis and I’m proud that I have led all the students that I tutored to achieve their goals in learning.

Knowledgable and patient

Ali is a great tutor. He helped me many times on my writing assignments. I will continue to review writing on future assignments because he really helped me to improve my writing skills.

Very patient and flexible

Ali tutored me in Arabic for about 3 months last semester and it was a great experience. He had very flexible hours and was up for meeting anywhere that we could make work. He gave me a lot of options for how to learn that I would not necessarily have experienced in a classroom. He was always willing to take more time on cultural or other topics I was interested in, so I really felt that I made well rounded progress in my knowledge of the Arabic language and the people who speak it. I have made so much progress that I feel much more confident in the class I am taking now than I could have hoped for ( I moved back to my college town). Ali really made the lessons interesting and effective by not just teaching straight out of our primary book, but structuring the lessons in a way that it made sense considering my progress at the time. He was very patient when I had difficulties in learning but was sure to point out the progress I was making and push me to do better, with clear suggestions of how to go about my studying. I highly recommend Ali!

Very Patient and Kind

He is a very patient and kind tutor. I am pleased with him, and would recommend him to others easily. He was more than gracious when we had to change locations and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about him. Thanks for your time.
