I started tutoring Arabic four years ago. I teach both Fusha and Syrian dialect for children and adults. Through the years I’ve worked on making my lessons full of fun and energy. My lessons are definitely unconventional with a lot of activities in and out the class. Sometimes I cook Syrian food with my students to let them learn new vocabulary in a creative way. Other times I pick an Arabic movie to watch together and then we discuss it. With children I use Drama games and games in general to allow them to enjoy the learning process. Learning through playing helps children to develop their skills and to have more self confidence towards new experience. My classes with are not only about words and sentences, they are also about learning Arabic with a lot of passion and enthusiasm.

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+ Read More
