She has help me with the song, gave me vocal and breathing techniques to reach high tones and even fix the guitar tablatures to match my voice to play it at the wedding. I will keep taking more lessons!!

I enjoyed my first lesson with Aliaksandra. She put me at my ease while challenging me. The one on one is exactly what I need to improve my ability to use the language. While I have been studying on my own for quite awhile, there is no substitute for having to actually use the language. On top of all of this, Aliaksandra is personable and fun.

About Raghad
I am a known Syrian actress, I have a Bachelor degree in acting and I was a teacher's assistant acting in the Higher Institute of Dramatic Arts in Syria for six years, that is why I have teaching skills. And with both my teaching skills and love for Arabic language I decided to be an Arabic tutor four years ago. I have a very good experience in Arabic tutoring both in Lebanon and the United States of America.

I arrived to the United States of America recently, and this is a great thing because my Arabic is still fresh and strong. I try my best not to use English during my classes to help students learn as much as they can, and to do so I love my lessons to be challenging but at the same time full of fun and energy. I use my experience as an actress to deliver language in a creative way. while taking a lesson with me you are not only
learning language but also you are learning how to have a perfect pronunciation and to know how to improve your Arabic speech skills.

I give an unconventional Arabic lessons with a lot of activities such as cooking Arabic food with my students, watching Arabic movies and discuss it and many other activities related to Arabic language and culture. With children I use drama games and games in general to make learning Arabic a fun thing to do. I try my best to make my classes full of passion and enthusiasm. I am currently a fellow teacher with GLN (Global Languages Network), GLN is an NGO located in Washington DC. I also give Private Arabic tutor both in Virginia and DC for children and adults.

I chose to tutor Arabic not because it was my specialization at university but because I love Arabic, I really enjoy tutoring Arabic but what makes me continue is my students feed back, and the feeling that they are enjoying my class, and the moment I lose this is the moment when I quit tutoring.

Raghad is a great Arabic teacher. Since taking lessons with her, my Arabic speaking skills have improved beyond my expectations. My vocabulary of the Syrian dialect has also increased which is further enhancing my speaking and listening skills. I would recommend Raghad to anyone who wants to learn the Syrian dialect or to improve their overall Arabic skills

About Eliska
I am an experienced ESL teacher, qualified interpreter and translator. I am a native Czech and new to the US. Studying interpreting and translation helped me to understand differences between the languages which I then applied when teaching my husband Czech.

During my classes, you will feel encouraged and motivated to learn the language. My students feel really comfortable with me and look forward to the next class. The language is not hard, when you make it fun!

Very positive demeanor, which helps to learn when you might feel bad or self-conscious for butchering grammar/pronunciation, and fun to talk to. As a native speaker of Czech, she has a slight accent yet isn't difficult to understand, only had to stop to ask her for clarification two or three times over the course of an hour. Good pacing, was not overwhelmed but still remained engaged.

Before our first session even began, she was already helpful in providing some suggestions for culture to look up, such as popular artists in certain genres of music.

Then at the end of our first session,
she left me with a few straightforward assignments to learn from until our next lesson.

I've had a great first impression. I'll see where things go in the future. Děkuju, Eliška!

Eliška is an outstanding teacher. She is always well-prepared. She tailors the instruction to my strengths and weaknesses, even adjusting the level as we work together during the class hour, so I assume she teaches each student in individually shaped lessons. And she makes each session interesting and practical! I highly recommend her.

About Taylor
I am TESOL Certified and have been teaching for five years. My favorite part of teaching is the student. The trials and tribulations the student faces throughout the learning process is nothing short of challenging. It is important to have an experienced and caring teacher and mentor there to guide the student through the difficult cirriculum. I am proud to say that I have been that teacher and mentor countless times. I love to challenge my students to push through a demanding cirriculum only to come out stronger and acheive their goals!

My experience has only been gainful through trial and error and without students this would not be possible. This job is not only wonderful because I love to challenge myself and students, but also because of how rewarding it is for both the student and myself.

Let's reach your goals together!
