I have always had a passion for languages and I am fascinated by the beauty of different cultures when explored through our ability to communicate using the languages of the places we visit and the people we meet. When teaching Arabic, although I teach classic to give my students the ability to read and write and keep progressing through at their own pace, I insist on teaching the Lebanese dialect that is understood by all Arabic speakers. Through this, I can immerse my student not only in the language but also in the culture and all its beautiful aspects.
I equally love French and enjoy teaching it. I believe that it should be the starting point for any language lover or any child willing to learn a second language as it provides great grammatical foundations to learn other languages. It is not impossible to master and a learner can hope with hard work and dedication they will soon be able to appreciate beautiful French literature and enjoy the amazing French songs from the 70s!
As a university student, I started teaching languages to primary as well as secondary age students. Upon moving to London, I started working with professionals. I have experience teaching children as young as 3 and adults as old as 73! I have taught students who are preparing for exams and others who are learning for work, social reasons, or simply out of interest in the language. I can safely say that all of my students have a different learning style, which makes what I do exciting and enjoyable. I strongly believe that everyone is able to learn anything if it is taught in a method that matches their learning style.
I am happy to offer a consultation to discuss your goals, your expectations and your learning style and answer any questions you may have.
