Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I teach Arabic in a way that is easily accessible and immediately applicable to daily life. Students who study with me will learn how to communicate fluently in both colloquial and Modern Standard Arabic. With regular practice, my beginning student’s levels are usually far above those of university students with an equal length of time studying. I tailor my lessons to each individual’s learning style and goals and pride myself on my ability to teach in the way most efficient for the student. All lessons that I teach are supplemented with study materials that my student’s can access before and after our lessons so that progress doesn’t begin or end with me.

Teaching since:

In the past 10 years, I have lived and worked in the Arab world, was formally educated in Arabic, and taught the Arabic language to an array of students.

I hold a dual degree with honors from The University of Texas at Austin in Psychology and Middle Eastern Languages and Cultures. I studied directly under ____, the esteemed professor and writer of the Al-Kitaab textbook series, Mahmoud al Batal and bec. (Yup, probably that textbook you're using right now.)

With training in both cognition/development and Arabic, I have taught all kinds of people over the past 5 years. My students range from college students to professional educators, humanitarian workers to businessman and politicians, emergency room surgeons to US Army Personnel, and regular people who are just interested in learning the language.

I specialize in one-on-one teaching and make custom lessons for your learning style- Arabic is an awesome language and I will help you learn it well.

Arabic · Online

I am almost a seventy year old woman. When I thought of traveling to the Middle East, I spent a year trying to learn basic Arabic-I tried online classes, videos, and books, but I couldn't learn it well and it wouldn't seem to stick. By chance, when I saw Aaron's webpage I thought it looked good and I decided to give it one last try.

Aaron is so skilled at what he does- he teaches in a clever and humorous way that I was so surprised by. His patience increased my confidence and interest in continuing to learn- especially at my age and experience level. After three months of learning, I can finally speak at the level where I feel comfortable traveling. I highly highly recommend that you learn with Aaron.

Thank you so much Aaron!
