Bio

I am proficient in Modern Standard Arabic as well as Jordanian and Egyptian dialects. I have lived and studied extensively in the Middle East, including Palestine, Jordan, Egypt and Morocco. I studied in Amman during the summers of 2006 and 2008 and then studied in Cairo for the summer of 2009. I returned to Cairo for a year of study from 2010-2011 as a fellow at the Center for Arabic Study Abroad, now administered through Harvard.

I am proficient in Modern Standard Arabic as well as Jordanian and Egyptian dialects. I have lived and studied extensively in the Middle East, including Palestine, Jordan, Egypt and Morocco. I studied in Amman during the summers of 2006 and 2008 and then studied in Cairo for the summer of 2009. I returned to Cairo for a year of study from 2010-2011 as a fellow at the Center for Arabic Study Abroad, now administered through Harvard. I have taught Arabic at the university level for four years; three years at Brigham Young University and one year at the University of Michigan. In addition, I have over three years of experience in one-on-one tutoring. I particularly enjoy private tutoring, as it allows students to make significant progress over a shorter time period.

I hope to help students in planning, executing and assessing their learning as they set clear, measurable goals to achieve communicative objectives. Over the past couple of years I have learned the importance of setting specific goals and then taking time to regularly evaluate results to make changes for improvement. I participated in BYU’s Arabic StarTalk program as both a camp facilitator and a participant in the teacher training programs for the summers of 2011and 2012. These experiences allowed me unique opportunities for examining and assessing how students approach language learning (including re-examining my own approach). I have learned much about the psychology of language learning, including concrete steps to increase student achievement.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Gretchen is an amazing tutor and is super patient. She answered all my questions, and quickly shaped the lesson in a way that best fit my learning style. I’m looking forward to learning more from her!

Vaughn, 4 lessons with Gretchen

Very helpful and patient tutor

Went over reading comprehension & identifying Arabic grammar concepts, from a given piece of text. It was very helpful in rebuilding my understanding of these grammatical aspects + how to isolate them.

Lucas, 3 lessons with Gretchen

Very knowledgable educator

Gretchen's deep content knowledge coupled with her ability to lead a focused session was just what was needed. We can see some light at the end of the tunnel now.
