About me

I have been teaching Quran for the past eight years. I earned an Ijazah in the Hafs recitation, with a chain of narrators that goes back directly to our beloved Prophet Muhammad (PUBH). I have students from all over the globe. My approach in teaching Quran recitation and memorization is to be simple and clear. The Quran is straightforward and that’s how it should be taught, without added complexities. I like to use different tools in teaching in order to accommodate different learning styles, each student is unique and needs a different approach. I like to first learn what my students’ goals are and then adjust the class according to their needs.
For me, nothing compares to teaching the Holy Qur’an. There is no better feeling than to see one of your students have their ‘aha’ moment and all the lessons come together. I look forward to meeting new students and helping them on their path to Quran.
