Teacher of Arabic language with a certificate of specialization and experience 5 years

Methodology

'm Nahida! I'm from Lebanon—I grew up in Beirut (the capital city of Lebanon), so Arabic is my mother tongue. Since childhood, I have been infatuated with the elegance of the classical Arabic language; its rhetoric, style, and vast potential for subtle expression are breathtaking. Teaching Arabic excites me and gives me a great sense of joy. Arabic is like an ancient map that takes you on the most gorgeous paths, rewarding you at the end with the golden treasure of understanding this immutable, fascinating language—the gateway to another civilization.
I have a bachelor's degree in Arabic literature and grammar from Global University in Beirut. Before coming to the states, I tutored students of various levels in Arabic grammar, dictation, conjugation, and other skills. As for my main job in the US, I have been teaching Arabic at a highly regarded institute in Upper Darby for over three years. It has been so rewarding to watch students from diverse backgrounds go through the three levels, and as a result, see them speak, write, and understand Arabic fluently.
My teaching focuses on classical Arabic. Classical Arabic is the key to reading and understanding any book, article, document, and passage—old or new. It is also very useful when traveling to any Arab country because classical Arabic is universal. Learning the dialect specific to one Arabic country significantly restricts one’s ability to converse and comprehend the Arabic of many other Arab countries. Classical Arabic is also exclusively used in official settings like airports, universities, and other formal institutions. Nevertheless, I can also teach the Lebanese and Egyptian dialects.
My method of teaching varies depending on the level of the student. Students of no or very low proficiency must first learn the letters and their proper pronunciation. Even though many people tend to skip this step, it is a fundamental stepping-stone towards our intended goal. It is very common to see people who neglect this step speaking Arabic with a very thick accent—to the point that their statements are not intelligible, which may result in undesirable consequences (the nether parts of sheep are considered a delicacy in my country).
After that, it is important to build the student’s vocabulary and teach them basic conjugation and grammar. Eventually, this will develop the learner’s reading, writing and conversing abilities. As the student advances in the aforementioned skills, I endeavor to augment their vocabulary further, enhance their writing, and truly prepare them to converse without the common stammering of the novice. I also put a premium on expunging the student's speech from all too familiar grammatical and conjugational errors that are ubiquitous even among Arabs. A simple way to achieve this is for the student to read and identify the mistakes from articles written in famous Arabic newspapers or magazines.
Give me a call to see what it’s like to learn Arabic from a highly qualified Arab teacher with an Arabic degree, a firm grasp of the Arab mentality, and the style of the Arabic language unfamiliar to many in the West. If not, enjoy snacking on bayd al ghanam…Bon apetit!

Background

I am a Lebanese teaching Arabic language and I have a bachelor's degree in Lebanon. With my studies, I was teaching private Arabic and I used this technique to gain skill and experience. I have at least 4 years of private tutoring experience. When I finished my studies, I worked at an institute for teaching Arabic in America called upperdarby called Aliph. Each student has a goal, one who wants to be stronger by reading, some who wants to be stronger by rules, and one who wants to be stronger with dialogue
