If you're wanting to take ESL lessons with me, I would like to use the Growing Participator Approach and teach conversationally. I am flexible, however, and will tailor the lessons to what you would like to learn!

My name is Susannah Storie and I teach English and Arabic. I studied both at the University of Arkansas. I majored in English and minored in Arabic - that is 30 credit hours of Modern Standard Arabic. I also spent time in the Middle East teaching English to kids and studying Arabic. This is beneficial because I not only know and understand Arabic grammar, but I also know and understand colloquial levantine/shami Arabic dialect.
I taught English by emersion to students who only spoke Arabic and on the week nights, I took Arabic lessons. I can teach the Arabic alphabet and basic grammar. This will help with pronunciation and the formation of sentences. It is a great foundation and I welcome anyone who wants to learn as little or as much Arabic as they like!
English is my native language and I have spent time teaching it as a second language before (ESL). I like to use the Growing Participator Approach in my lessons but this will take time dedication. The GPA is an approach that teaches language the way we learn it naturally as babies. As you "grow" in the language, it will become internalized as language does as we grow up.
I also studied English grammar and literature in college, spend quite a bit of time writing, and actually enjoy wiring essays. I would love to teach you how to write an effective essay that you'll actually enjoy writing!
Great tutor! Very helpful and attentive to my needs. She understands my specific needs and is able to meet them. Very personable and enjoyable!
Susannah is such a great instructor! Very patient, fun, and knowledgable of the language! I definitely recommend her because you will learn a lot, and have a great time while doing so! She also has real life experience using Arabic, living among native speakers--so she brings a lot to the table!+ Read More
