- The University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA (Middle Eastern Studies and History)
Hello everyone, my name is Nadia and I am passionate about teaching and I love working with students of all ages. While I was studying at University of Virginia (UVA) I taught a class independently as a TA where my passion for teaching grew stronger. I, then, spent the summer after graduation working as a Mentor at Georgetown University for a State Department Program.
Since high school, I have tutored my friends and peers. Then in college, I tutored younger students. Now, I tutor friends studying languages. I am bilingual in Arabic and English with working proficiency in German. My area of studies and expertise include History, World History, US government, art history, and architecture. My language competence is in Arabic and English; writing, grammar, literature, and ESL.
I am a native Arabic speaker and I have also taken advanced formal Arabic classes in college. I have lived in many parts of the Middle East and I speak multiple dialects such as Levant and Iraqi as well as Standard Arabic "Fosha" fluently. My love for languages and my ability to speak three languages have allowed me to effectively teach Arabic to students of all ages and levels.
At UVA, I studies Middle Eastern History and Politics as well as American History and Politics. I also did minor focus on German Jewish History and Jewish Studies. As well as taking many other World History classes. During my last semester at UVA I worked as an Independent Researcher in the History Department and conducted primary research. Prior to UVA, I have studies Architecture and Art History for three and a half years in Jordan, Germany and Italy.
Feel free to shoot me an email, even if simply to get to know me more, ask me questions, or simply to see if we are a good fit or not. I would love to hear more from the students or the parents before setting up a lesson :) Hello everyone, my name is Nadia and I am passionate about teaching and I love working with students of all ages.

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.
I am a native speaker who has lived in the Middle East for 20 years of my life during which I had formal Arabic classes from the age of 6 until the age of 20. After which, I continued to take advanced Arabic classes while studying at the University of Virginia, I was majoring in Middle Eastern Studies and I took the most advance Arabic Language and Grammar classes as well as Arabic Literature classes. I also tutored fellow students at University of Virginia, and other students at Georgetown University in Arabic. In addition to all of that, I have worked as a freelance translator and interpreter for over two years, translating Arabic to English and vice versa. I also speak multiple dialects beside the Formal Standard Arabic; I speak Iraqi and Levant dialects and understand most other Arabic dialects.
