About me

I have a bachelor’s degree in Arabic Language & Literature, a diploma in teaching methods, and a six years’ Diploma in Arabic Calligraphy, in addition to a Master degree in teaching Arabic as a Foreign Language.

I have more than seven years of experience as an online and on-site teacher of Arabic as a foreign language. My teaching experience has allowed me to work with students of different ages and from different backgrounds. I worked with the study abroad programs of Manchester University, and the US embassy staff in Cairo, Libya, and Lebanon. Recently, I have been teaching Arabic to the Indian embassy staff in Cairo through the American University in Cairo. I was Adjunct Lecturer at SUNY New Paltz where I teach Standard Arabic for an academic year.

I was the Arabic teacher of Benny Lewis, the founder of Fluent in 3 Months. You can check Benny’s reflection about his experience of learning Arabic at the following link: http://www.fluentin3months.com/arabic-results/

I can offer these courses:

Classical Arabic (CA)
