Samir is an excellent language tutor! He can craft lessons to suit any needs whether you are a beginner or advanced! He also provides relevant supplementary materials so that you can practice and apply the theories learned in your lesson. I found that this consistent practice with actual speaking was a big factor to achieving better spoken fluency with my language of study, arabic. I highly recommend Samir as you will not be disappointed.

For homework, Samir sent me several videos of Moroccan dialect. We discussed the vocabulary during the lesson; as always, he provided many examples to demonstrate the broader usage of the words. He is a skilled teacher. Highly recommended.

Can you imagine an actress giving Arabic lessons! Well that’s me. Are you wondering what could make an actress give Arabic lessons? The answer is love. I love that the Arabic language is built up on emotions and is poetic. Through my work as an actress I have to use perfect language as well as perfect skills in delivering the language. Actors in Syria need to have very good Arabic, especially Fusha. Being an Arabic native speaker doesn’t mean that your Fusha is good. My Fusha is good because I’ve always loved reading both novels and poetry, and because I used to write in Arabic newspapers, and beside all of these things, I had the chance to practice my Fusha through my work as an actress.
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

About Raghad
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.

I teach Arabic in a way that is easily accessible and immediately applicable to daily life. Students who study with me will learn how to communicate fluently in both colloquial and Modern Standard Arabic. With regular practice, my beginning student’s levels are usually far above those of university students with an equal length of time studying. I tailor my lessons to each individual’s learning style and goals and pride myself on my ability to teach in the way most efficient for the student. All lessons that I teach are supplemented with study materials that my student’s can access before and after our lessons so that progress doesn’t begin or end with me.

About Aaron
In the past 10 years, I have lived and worked in the Arab world, was formally educated in Arabic, and taught the Arabic language to an array of students.

I hold a dual degree with honors from The University of Texas at Austin in Psychology and Middle Eastern Languages and Cultures. I studied directly under ____, the esteemed professor and writer of the Al-Kitaab textbook series, Mahmoud al Batal and bec. (Yup, probably that textbook you're using right now.)

With training in both cognition/development and Arabic, I have taught all kinds of people over the past 5 years. My students range from college students to professional educators, humanitarian workers to businessman and politicians, emergency room surgeons to US Army Personnel, and regular people who are just interested in learning the language.

I specialize in one-on-one teachin
g and make custom lessons for your learning style- Arabic is an awesome language and I will help you learn it well.

I am almost a seventy year old woman. When I thought of traveling to the Middle East, I spent a year trying to learn basic Arabic-I tried online classes, videos, and books, but I couldn't learn it well and it wouldn't seem to stick. By chance, when I saw Aaron's webpage I thought it looked good and I decided to give it one last try.

Aaron is so skilled at what he does- he teaches in a clever and humorous way that I was so surprised by. His patience increased my confidence and interest in continuing to learn- especially at my age and experience level. After three months of learning, I can finally speak at the level where I feel comfortable traveling. I highly highly recommend that you learn with Aaron.

Thank you so much Aaron!
