I am a native speaker from Egypt who has studied traditional and non traditional Arabic classes including MSA (modern Standard Arabic), and even classical fus7a (fusshha) and modern colloquial. I have tutored Arabic at the Ohio State University and can also teach how to write Arabic calligraphy if interested. My interest in learning other languages have broadened my perspective on teaching from many different backgrounds not just English.

let your child learn Arabic in a different and fun technique way, through symbols and images. You child will speak from the first session, and will be able to read and memorize the words through images. Kids will learn Arabic based on a series of icons placed grammatically and interpreted as full complex sentences. Adults will find Arabic so easy and simple using the best books and techniques using conversational Arabic. No wasting time let'd start speaking!!

Great class , really appreciated her patience and understanding and willingness to teach me, having never had to learn a foreign language before I’m sure I pose a challenge but she was very encouraging which made me relax and get more comfortable. Looking forward to my next lesson!!

I teach in a very context-based, interactive way. I don't believe that rote memorization is an effective tool for language learning, so I create games and scenarios for my students to apply the information that they learn in a fun and exciting way. I create a study set for each of my student's lessons and share them with them for their at-home studying.

Aaron is the third Arabic teacher I've worked and is definitely the best in all respects.

He is very organized and efficient and pleasant to learn from. I've developed much better and structured habits in how I approach my grammar and understanding of Arabic- he made it feel so easy. He challenges me just enough so that I can learn where I need to grow.

Great at teaching at any level.

Highly recommended!

Aaron breaks down his lessons by category which is extremely helpful. Smart and professional man who knows his craft. He can explain the same concept/idea in 10 different ways and won't just 'bypass' anything you aren't completely clear on. Cool guy, patient, worth all my time and money.

Aaron’s a really cool guy and a great teacher. I took lessons with him 3x a week and my Arabic improved so quickly. I scored high on my tests and got to exactly where I wanted to be. He is straightforward and to the point but not at all uptight. Definitely highly recommend.

My name is Bruce. I am a mechanical and manufacturing engineer at a large company in Silicon Valley, California. I have acquired a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering as well as a Masters in Engineering Management. I was interested in learning the programming language Python and signed up for tutoring lessons with Ahmed. After the first initial lessons, I then signed up for another thirty five lessons. I plan to continue lessons with Ahmed until I have gained significant proficiency in programming.
I am very pleased that I have met Ahmed and that I am taking lessons with him. He has helped me with computational skills and learning what programming is and why and how it works. Ahmed has patiently helped me with the debugging of my programs. I have been able to design programs that are mathematically eloquent, logically sound, and that are free of syntax errors. Without hesitation, I would recommend Ahmed for anyone that requires help in IT.
Ahmed has been helping me design efficient programs that include understanding of variables, lists, conditional statements, loops, functions, and theory of probability. I like the fact that Ahmed merges the curricular of universities that include Harvard, Yale, MIT, and Stanford. Ahmed’s presentations use videos, audio, graphics, and PowerPoint, all of which have been very helpful.
Ahmed has a strong command of the English language as well as the computer languages. Ahmed combines an impressive knowledge of mathematics, history, politics, and sociology. Learning Python opens numerous opportunities in one’s academics, professional and personal life. Python can be incorporated into Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint, Publisher, and other software. I am looking forward to future training in machine learning and artificial intelligence. Thanks.

Excellent. Majed is a natural teacher. He knows how effectively to communicate with his student. He is fast in identifying the need of his student and in developing effective teaching method and communication approach. He has already created a positive learning environment. The lesson has been conducted 80% in Arabic and 20% in English. The objective is, with improvement on my part, to conduct the lesson 100% in Arabic. I have made a good choice and I am happy.

Arabic Lessons

Do you want to take Arabic lessons with the perfect teacher near you? If yes, then you’ve come to the right place. Private Arabic lessons and classes with a TakeLessons Certified™ teacher - whether in-home, studio, or online - accelerates your progress, increases enjoyment, and improves every student's chances of becoming a fluent user of the Modern Standard Arabic language. Private tutoring makes learning easy, it's more affordable than you might think, and it's the most impactful way to improve your skills for beginner or advanced learners.

Our Arabic tutors work with students of all ages: kids, teenagers, adults, and even seniors. They can teach you the origins of the Arabic language, in addition to the vocabulary, the grammar, the punctuation, the consonants, the vowels, allophones, dialects, sentence structures, variations between Arabic, gender differences, politeness in Arabic culture and its relationship to the other forms of Arabic in the Middle East. Learn about and experience the physical, social, and emotional benefits of learning a foreign language like Arabic.

As a Category 5 language, Arabic is one of the hardest foreign languages to master. It takes up to 88 weeks of deliberate practice to gain General Professional Fluency. A private tutor can help keep you focused, committed, and motivated, not to mention their ability to help you overcome any language hurdles you have trouble with.

Your tutor offers you expert language learning techniques and tips, and helps you develop good practice habits, so that you can maximize your learning experience, and achieve your goals faster. Though learning Arabic is extremely useful while traveling to Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and other Middle Eastern and Northern Africa destinations, it also helps with career prospects and with personal relationships. Become a better Arabic speaker, reader, writer, and communicator.

Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced student, our private teachers come from a variety of backgrounds, making it easy to find the perfect match for your interest and skill level. Each instructor's specialties are listed in their profile, along with details about their background check, photos, student feedback, and lesson availability.

We guarantee a personalized experience that will make you glad you took up private lessons. In fact, we are so committed to your happiness that we offer all new customers a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee on your first lesson.

Alternative Foreign Language Lesson Methods:
Arabic Apps and Books

For independent language learners, downloading popular language apps - free and premium - or checking out books from the library are excellent options. They cost less overall than private lessons, and allow you to learn at your own pace, on your own time, and the topics of your own choosing. The downside is that you don't have personal instruction for the times you need to overcome any challenging obstacles. Learning with a partner or a teacher gives you the personal interaction you need to verbally practice and attempt the language.

Middle East Travel & Immersion

If you're considering study-abroad programs to the Middle East, work relocation, international business opportunities, or general travel as a means to learning the language, immersing your self in the origin country and interacting with locals is a surefire way to accelerate your learning. Reading signs, menus, and local newspaper magazines while abroad could expose you to all kinds of spontaneous subjects. Conversing with or having to ask native speakers for directions or recommendations forces you to proactively apply your lessons. The downside is that many students, professionals, and travelers don't feel as confident in taking this approach. Not knowing the basics of the language could backfire on you, and lead to poor decision making. Traveling in countries where English isn't the primary language can be risky if you don't plan ahead. If you learn basic conversation and the most popular phrases for traveling, then you can combine this knowledge with immersion and return home a more fluent speaker.

Group Classes

Taking small group classes to learn a new language is another good way to acquire basic language skills, immediate feedback, and human interaction. It combines both passive and active learning. A professional instructor leading the class can keep the agenda tight and ensure each student gets the chance to participate, and get their questions answered. It can also be more affordable than private 1-on-1 lessons. Find local Arabic group classes near you by doing a quick Google search, or better yet, sign up for TakeLessons Live, the new and affordable way to learn languages, and to learn how to play musical instruments in small groups of 5-8. You pay a flat monthly or annual fee, and get unlimited access to hundreds of classes online every month. Perfect for beginners.

At TakeLessons, we understand every student is different, and that the best way to learn any language is to try a combination of various learning techniques. Try all of the above, find out what works best for you, and then study hard and smart. It's only a matter of time before you achieve your goals.
