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.
