I have had a great time learning Arabic so far. I've wanted to learn Lebanese Arabic for a long time. The lesson pace is really good, and the Google classroom resources are easy to use!

My French lessons with Roula have exceeded all of my expectations! I spoke a little French before beginning with her, and she quickly tailored her lesson plan to my precise skill level to make sure I am both challenged by the material and absorbing the language. She is incredibly responsive and thorough, and truly takes the time to ensure that I completely understand the materials presented. I am more excited than ever about continuing my French studies because of her - I can't recommend her enough! These classes have been an incredible investment and I plan on continuing as long as possible! Thank you Roula! :)

I study French language with Roula for several months now. I can not be happier with Roula’s classes, and her approach teaching a new language. First class was an assessment where to start, because Roula builds a program, which is tailored to one’s experience - I had couple years of French in college, but forgot it all. Roula’s program balances grammar, vocabulary, listening and speaking. She always listening to my feedback, and works with me if I have questions, problems with pronunciations or just personal suggestions. It is never boring, I leave my class with gratitude, and always excited and looking forward to another class. Also I made quite a progress and started speaking French. Best Teacher Ever!

If you are serious about learning either French or Arabic, this is the best instructor. She is dedicated and her method is excellent. In our Arabic lessons, we target different sources of information and the lessons are comprehensive. I have been taking lessons for over 2 months and I get even more motivated with every lesson.

I began taking French lessons with Roula about three months ago and I think she’s a wonderful teacher. The materials she’s prepared herself are clear and instructive; and I like that the other learning platforms she uses have interactive elements that are great for practice between lessons. She tailors her lessons to your skill level, and I can say from experience that she’s very patient with beginners. She’s very nice, and very smart! I highly recommend her!

First lesson was great, Ms. Roula sent me an e-mail to get information about my language needs, since I did not check my e-mail, we kind of work my lessons on the spot. It went well nonetheless. I am quite motivated to learn the arabic language and I believe Roula can take me to proficiency.

Hello all! I just can't say enough great things about Roula. She works around technical difficulties like a pro. She always has a plan for the lesson, and adapts to the student according to their progress. My favorite thing about my lessons with her is her genuine interest in helping me become more capable in my language. I knew from my first lesson that she was a special kind of teacher. Won't be leaving her until I'm good and fluent.

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!
