My name is Laila. I am a mother of four children. I have BS in Computer Science and MA in Accounting. In addition, I've been a reading therapist for more than 12 years. I am an owner of a reading clinic that offers help to people of any age or ability struggling with literacy. 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 an 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. I have helped both adults and children become passionate about the language and the culture, as well as learn how to read and decode the language easily.

Laila is an excellent teacher. She has an outstanding academic background and just the right techniques and materials to teach Arabic. With my kids, she was very patient, skillful and resourceful. I definitely recommend Laila for lessons for kids or adults.
If I could give Laila a thousand-star rating I would! I am an adult student, middle eastern background with a starting proficiency level of a beginner. I took lessons with Laila for about a year and half and my skill in reading, writing, and conversation tremendously improved over that period of time. Laila is very patient, energetic, and creative in her style of teaching. She is very thoughtful in her lesson planning and utilizes many different resources making each class different and enjoyable. Laila is also very flexible and adapted to my learning style. She paid close attention to my needs and focused on areas that I needed more improvement. Laila always made sure to ask for feedback for any changes or topics that I wanted to focus on which I really appreciated. Laila has grown passed just being my teacher but now a part of my family! I highly encourage you to sign up with lessons with Laila -- you will have an amazing experience!
Laila is such a wonderful teacher, we have learned so much throughout our time with her! We look forward to our time every week! My middle child was having trouble reading and now we also see her through her reading clinic. I am always confident my children are getting the best education from her and they are so excited to work with her! Whether it be Arabic or reading. I was taking Arabic too but I had to take a short break and I am looking forward to our time again when I can get back to it! I also love how she brings the culture to life! My husband is Arabic but he has trouble breaking down the language for us so I am so glad we were able to find Laila and she speaks the same dialect! There aren’t enough good things I can say! If you want to learn Arabic from a truly genuine person definitely contact her!
