Teaches students:
Ages 5+ and special needs

Teaching since:
October 1980

I taught Math and science k-6 for 3 years overseas and keeping up with the new curriculum developments for Math 4-8.

I am certified in Arabic, French and BCIT ( Business. Computer and Technology) and taught all 3 in the Mount Lebanon School district in Pittsburgh, PA for 8 years before becoming the full time French Teacher at the SlipperyRock Area High School starting in August 2017, my current employment.
After school and on weekends I tutor French and Arabic online and my students range from ages 7 to adult. I tailor my lessons to the needs of every student. I create materials and use whatever is necessary to make sure my students enjoy, learn and excel in the subject they are learning.
In the summer I also work at Kindercare with the school age group for the summer camp activities.

Roula is an excellent Arabic language teacher! My kindergartner enjoys her weekly session with her. Roula is very easy going and knows exactly how to relate to such a young student. She is very positive and encouraging, which makes my daughter more at ease and allows her to benefit a lot from the lesson. My daughter has shown notable progress and more importantly, she's excited to speak the language! I'm very happy with the results and highly recommend Roula as a teacher!

Roula is a great teacher. She connected easily with my kids and made them feel comfortable and at ease speaking the new language. The material online has been very helpful and Roula tailors it to each child's specific needs. Great experience so far.
