Damascus University (chemistry)
I owned and ran a pharmacy in Syria, and since I have come to the United States, I have had a crash course in English! I have taken college classes since arriving, including Master's of Business Foundation courses. I still speak English with an accent, but I have a broad and deep English vocabulary.
I also excelled in Arabic grammar and literature classes. I read, write and speak the Arabic language, but I have enough knowledge about Arabic to teach other people how to read, write and speak. I can not only explain correct grammar to students, but also the language logic behind the explanation.
I have worked as a translator with Lutheran Family Services, helping Syrian and Iraqi refugees with doctor appointments, and social service programs, housing interviews, etc. and I have tutored Arabic to private students, teaching reading, writing, and speaking to adults in an Arabic language class taught at my church. I have worked with students who already understood and spoke some Arabic, but teaching someone from the ground up would be a wonderful experience, and an opportunity to work with someone who didn't need to unlearn mistakes.
I have reliable transportation, and a flexible schedule. Feel free to contact me so we can get started!

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-born Syrian. I speak, read and write Arabic fluently. I studied Arabic literature in college, at Damascus University, the best college in Syria. I am proficient in all aspects of the Arabic language, including grammar. I have been studying English in the United States since I arrived in 2013, so I understand language learning from the student's perspective, and I have been tutoring Arabic for over two years, so I have experience teaching the language. I completed ESL classes at Clark College, and recently received an A in English 101, also at Clark.
