  Helped me review how to conjugate and negate verbs in past, present, and future, as well as how to negate adjectives. He was great at explaining me the patterns and was very patient with me in figuring out how to conjugate them myself.

 We developed vocabulary pertaining to different scenarios (seeking medical attention, going to the Internet cafe, going on a family excursion, etc.). Samir is very responsive to student input. It was another great lesson.

 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.

 Another delightful lesson: interesting, instructive, and enjoyable. Samir has quite a sense of humor, too, which I really appreciate.

Qualifications & Experience

I hold a Bachelor Degree from Mohammed V University of law in Rabat, Morocco, I worked for the Moroccan Government for over ten years before moving to the United States of America in 2006.

I work mainly with private clients and students. I am positive and patient so you can totally relax and have a great time working on your Arabic .

I have an abundance of patience. My objective is to make your Arabic fun, creative, educational, and friendly.

I have been tutoring for almost twenty years, and I currently teach and tutor one-on-one and online via Skype or phone during late afternoons, evenings and weekends

I 'am familiar with the Education Curriculum (Youth Exchange and Study(YES)Abroad, taught to American high school students who travel to Morocco on scholarship and exchange programs to study for long and short periods of time.

I' am also familiar with the French and Arabic Curriculums used by the FCPS World Languages.

Teaching Approach

So much depends on what your goals are, and that's why I'll respond to your specific needs and interests.

I can help you study everything from pronunciation to grammar.

Tutoring Levels:

Level 1:

You only know the alphabet, and you can't write or speak a word yet. Not a problem, we can go through the basics to get you comfortable.After the first lesson, you'll already know how to have a simple conversation (introduce yourself, ask for directions or order a dish for instance.

Level 2:

You can speak the few sentences that you remember from school, but not enough to feel at ease across the pond. Key grammatical points will be covered, ensuring that both your vocabulary and linguistic skills are prepared for any debate you may encounter in Arabic .

Level 3:

Your level is quite acceptable and you can speak without looking for words every other second, but you need to perfect it. You want to go deeper into the language, as it is very important in Arabic to vary vocabulary for the same idea. Also, you'll need to learn how to avoid common grammar mistakes than even native Arabic speakers do (a lot!).

I have ألف باء and الكتاب في تعلم العربية . I am extremely patient, very friendly ,easy to work with and make learning fun


If you need immediate assistance for a test or homework, translation and summary, I can work with you for short term as well and assist you within a very short notice.

I hope you will find Arabic easier, and more enjoyable with me !.
