About Max

I am a language and culture professional with many years of experience teaching Arabic and Middle Eastern culture and religion to professionals and US government organizations. I also do interpretation and translations in the medical, legal and business fields.

In addition to teaching MSA (Modern Standard Arabic) I can teach and speak Egyptian, Iraqi and most other Arabic dialects. I also have previous experience in teaching Arabic to the military, using the Defense Language Institute curriculum.

I have a very busy schedule but I will make every effort to be available as much as I can.
