- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
My name is Laila. I am a mother of four children ages 21,18,17&12. I have BS in Computer Science and MS in Accounting. In addition, I am a reading therapist . I run an online reading clinic for dyslexic students to help them with their literacy struggles.
I'm bilingual English/Arabic, and while I was raising up my children, I gave them Arabic private lessons for many years. They never liked the traditional methods their tutors used. Because of my experience with teaching children and my fluency in both languages, I came up with and interesting way of teaching children the language through fun activities, conversations, books, apps and many more. Learning Arabic will not be boring, but rather fun and easy.
Laila is a truly exceptional instructor! Many years ago I mentored her as she studied the Phono-Graphix reading/spelling method. What a sharp and driven student she was. Since then, Laila has become a respected colleague and cherished friend of mine. Her love of learning and for her students shines forth in all that she does. She brings this, along with extensive experience and preparation to every lesson.+ Read More
Great instructor. Knowlegable, structured and caring. Excellent ability to explain matters clearly. Creative and supportive. Added great value to my college admission essays.
My daughter's reading skills have improved tremendously over that last year. We have found the tutoring sessions to be very helpful and beneficial.
My son was struggling with reading and it was affecting his performance at school. Laila's approach was very professional. She gave him a free test to determine the problem then started working with him. Her methods of teaching were different, fast and very effective. We could see results after a few sessions.
She is so passionate about teaching, approchable and warm. My son loved his lessons and I loved dealing with her.
