Hi, my name is Sherry,

I am a native Arabic speaker, born and raised in Egypt, most of my education had been taught in Arabic, I excelled in the language so much, started writing stories, I also love reading and writing poems.

I studied graphic design in Staten Island college and New York University, I worked as a graphic designer and an art director for 9 years in NYC before I moved to Seattle, I stayed home for ten years to raise my three children.

My experience of tutoring started ten years ago when I found an open opportunity at my church to teach an Arabic language class.

I believe with my knowledge and love of the Arabic language and my experience of tutoring it, I can combine both and tutor beginners as well as advanced levels. I don't just read, write and speak the language, I am able to do it in many different dialects (Egyptian, Lebanese, Palestinian, Syrian and formal Arabic )

I love teaching adults of all ages and younger students as well. For me, a big part of the reward in tutoring is making the Arabic language enjoyable, fun and very interesting.

I have been tutoring for more than 10 years. All of my students seek my help in preparing for Arabic Language tests that are taught in colleges and universities. Also, some seek my help with the very challenging tests for overseas employment in Arabic Speaking countries.

Teaching always been a dream career of mine, I love to see young minds opening up to new experiences, especially when learning a new language.

I'm a very optimistic and patient tutor, very positive attitude and care in teaching my students and encouraging them to learn and to reach their goals. I also put my students' interests first and accommodate them in every possible way and to my best ability.

My goal is to get you comfortable and competent in the language so that the entire learning experience is rewarding in many ways.

I believe that tutor and student should be properly introduced, they also need to know each other's style of learning, goals and needs. for that reason, I offer a free of charge initial meeting (60-90 minutes), by the end of the meeting the student should be able to decide if he or she would like to continue with me.

Best Tutor (after 5 others)

Have hired a variety of tutors in my quest to learn Arabic. Sherry is by far the best. Although Sherry is very nice and a cool person, that is not why I state she is the best. Sherry has a process and materials, and has taught me an amazing amount in a very short time. I will continue to hire Sherry and highly recommend her for your learning needs!

Sherry is very patient and knowledgeable.

Sherry taught Arabic to my daughter. She is very talented and has a fun filled way of teaching that interests kids. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to learn the language.

Sakina, 5 lessons with Sherry

Excellent Arabic Tutor

Sherry is a gem! She really and truly cares about her students. My daughter has done maybe 5 sessions with her and I can already see the improvement and growth in learning the arabic language. My only complaint is that I didn't find her sooner! She's a pleasure to work with and goes above and beyond.

Friendly, dedicated, and excellent native-speaking tutor

Sherry is not only a wonderful teacher but also a kind and valuable friend. She will go out of her way to improve the overall learning experience of her students. She allows them to customize the Arabic that they learn--even catering to different dialect preferences--and her individualized methods are priceless. She's made long commutes just to have a lesson and she really makes her students feel special.

Great lesson!!

I can already feel myself remembering words and phrases I haven't heard in ten years- Sherry is so patient and comes prepared with useful, interesting, and level-appropriate materials! I look forward to many more lessons with Sherry!

Excellent tutor for all levels - and all dialects!

Sherry is a wonderful person to meet with and a dedicated tutor looking to pass on this exquisite language to non-native speakers. Having studied the Arabic language in three different countries as well as in the US, but forgotten a great deal of it, I have been in serious need of practice in terms of conversation, reading and writing, and grammar. Not only that, my dialectic knowledge is completely scattered. But Sherry, speaking upwards of 7 Arabic dialects, works with me in both Fus7a and 3mia masria (MSA and Egyptian) to give me the tailored practice I need. In addition to rigorous studying, she also calls me once a day for 15 minutes to speak (struggle) through a short daily conversation. This keeps Arabic fresh on my mind and even after only a class, I can feel the language come much more easily. Overall, she is a fantastic person and teacher and I could not be more grateful.
