I have been teaching Quran since I was in high school. It has been my passion to teach Quran recitation and tajweed for the past 33 years.
Even though I have a degree in teaching English, I soon realized my passion lies in teaching Quran and sharing my love for beautiful recitation with others. It’s an honor to recite Quran with my students and be a part of their lifelong relationship with Allah’s book.
While living in Jeddah, I was given the unique opportunity to be the supervisor of the Islamic Center for non-Arabs teaching tajweed and Tafseer to non-native Arabic speakers. I loved being able to translate the beautiful Quran into easy lessons on how to apply it to our daily life.
I want my students to perfect their tajweed but also understand what they are reciting. The Quran is not just for reading but also for living and using the lessons. I celebrate with my students when they pronounce a letter correctly that has been giving them a hard time. I feel it’s my success as well.
