About Hazem O.

Hazem teaches: Ages 21 and up
Teaching since: February 1999
Last sign in: More than two months


I have always enjoyed learning and teaching languages. Teaching for me is a reflective practice of my language learning experience, so I always put myself in students' shoes. In terms of my experience, I have 7 years of experience in Teaching English as a foreign/second language to students whose first language is Arabic. I also have 10 years of experience in teaching Arabic as a foreign language to American adults. I have a masters degree in teaching a foreign language from Middlebury Institute of International Studies, and an EdD in International and Multicultural Education with emphasis on second language acquisition from the University of San Francisco. I believe that teaching languages help me know more about other cultures and gives me an opportunity to put intercultural communication skills I developed over time and due to my education into practice.
